An adolescent who was diagnosed with schizophrenia and was on anti-psychotic drugs, was mistakenly given anti-depressants instead of her prescribed medication due to a pharmacy error. The pharmacist was charged with medical malpractice after the young woman experienced auditory hallucinations and suicidal ideation. The mistake was detected a month after the incorrect medication with a similar name was given to the girl, which lead to re-presentation of psychosis.
