Alexandra's case is one of what some fear is an unreported epidemic of pharmacy errors at the country's growing chain drug stores. In a four-month "20/20" investigation, Brian Ross and the Investigative Team went undercover and found out that many prescriptions are not even filled by pharmacists but by pharmacy technicians who are often just high school students. Pharmacists are supposed to then check each prescription. (ABC News)
