    it was in Canada: maybe anti-psychoitc meds are appropriate Halloween candies up north?


    Pharmacy accidentally gave kids bipolar pills instead of candy

    A worker at a Canadian pharmacy accidentally gave out out bipolar medication to trick-or-treaters instead of candy, according to a report.


    The mix-up unfolded after a woman unknowingly dropped her 17-year-old son’s prescription drugs while on her way out of a Beauport pharmacy.



    Another customer picked up the medication — Quetiapine and Divalproex sodium, both of which are used to treat schizophrenia as well as other psychological disorders — and placed it dangerously close to the candy basket on the counter.



    “So – unfortunately – we don’t know how – an employee just mixed it with the candy by accident and distributed it to the kids,” a Quebec City police spokesperson told the Daily Star.



    Seven individually wrapped pills were dropped into candy baskets throughout the night.



    Police assured parents that the medications were not dangerous — despite side effects that include suicidal thoughts, tremors and nausea.

    At least the pills were free. You know, except for that high taxes thing.

    those meds are probably better for the kids than the sugar in the candies.

    oh ok. i wasn't sure about that first source but if its on CBC i figure that's pretty much first line news in Canada, and would explain why it hit the UK papers fast.

    Did any of you guys ever give your candy away? My aunt said that her granddaughter walked up to other little kids while trick or treating and gave away her candy. F that. That kid is messed up.
