PHARMACY ACCIDENTALLY HANDS OUT BIPOLAR MEDS INSTEAD OF CANDY ON HALLOWEEN:
A Canadian pharmacy says it mistakenly handed out bipolar medication, thought to be Quetiapine (an antipsychotic used to treat schizophreniz and depression), along with candy to kids who were trick-or-treating on Halloween. The Quebec City pharmacy said a customer dropped her son's prescription medicine when leaving the store and another customer picked it up and placed it next to the Halloween candy basket. An employee then allegedly mixed the individually wrapped pills into the candy. Canadian police assured parents that their children are safe even if they ingested the drug. Common side effects include vomiting, sleepiness, paranoia and suicidal thoughts.
