A woman claims she received the wrong prescription from a pharmacy and is seeking more than $100,000 in damages from the pharmacist and his store.

Now, the pharmacy has filed a motion to dismiss the complaint, since the plaintiff did not provide the required attorney affidavit.

Patricia Pressman alleged that Donald Johnston and his pharmacy, Hideg Pharmacy Inc, gave her the wrong prescription, which led to injuries.

Pressman was prescribed hydralazine on April 24, 2014, and she allegedly she took the medication that same day, Madison Record reported.

After taking the medication, which may be used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure, Pressman said she experienced pain and injury, which led her to be hospitalized. Pressman also alleged that she experienced mental anguish and loss of capacity.

St. Clair County Circuit Judge Andrew Gleeson has scheduled a hearing for July 29, 2015, to decide whether or not to dismiss the motion, according to Madison Record.
