A La Crosse woman is accused of forging her prescription slip to include a drug used to treat intestinal parasites and another that doesn't exist.
Theresa Boudreau, 44, presented the typed slip from a Franciscan Skemp Medical Center doctor to Walgreen's at 900 S. West Ave. about 8:15 a.m. Friday, according to La Crosse police reports.
The paper included a handwritten prescription for Graziquartet, a drug the pharmacist wasn't familiar with, reports stated. The hospital doctor said she only prescribed a drug for acid reflux and said Graziquartet is not a known prescription drug.
Boudreau denied altering the medication order, but the handwriting on a card attached to her driver's license detailing her mediations matched the writing on the prescription slip, reports stated.
She was arrested on a charge of alteration of a medication prescription and due in La Crosse County Circuit Court later today.
