On 1-29-18 I received a letter from Walmart stating that my prescription called Clopidogrel 75mg was mislabel and the International LAboratories,LLC wa doing a recall on the medicine. I had already took the prescription and the wrong medicine in the bottle was called Simvastatin 10mg. I was wanting to know if anything could be done. The double dose of simvastatin in my body has called my muscles to hurt really bad.
