Prescription Mistakes & Pharmaceutical Errors
Pharmacists are under intense pressure to fill an enormous amount of prescriptions
per day. It is not uncommon for a pharmacy to focus on productivity rather
than personal service. When this happens, it is possible for errors to
occur. Unfortunately, a prescription error can have catastrophic consequences.
Prescription errors can be caused by any number of circumstances, including:
- Physicians prescribing the wrong medication for a condition
- Pharmacists failing to catch a doctor's mistake
- Pharmacists filling the wrong medication or dosage
- Pharmacists failing to detect a dangerous drug interaction
If you or a loved one has suffered extended injury or illness due to a
prescription error, schedule a free consultation with a
medical malpractice lawyer at our firm. We can advise you on the best course of action.
Dangerous Drug Interactions
Prescription medication is extremely strong and can cause a number of side-effects
upon consumption. However, when more than one type of medication is taken,
the drugs themselves can interact and cause severe effects. In these situations,
it is the responsibility of the doctor and pharmacist to ensure that there
will not be a dangerous drug interaction.
Some of the symptoms of dangerous drug interactions include:
- Fluctuating moods
- Personality changes
- Erratic bowel movements
There a number of issues that can lead to dangerous reactions to prescription
drugs. For example, if a doctor prescribes a drug that you are allergic
to, your life might be in danger. If you were prescribed a drug that had
a dangerous interaction with a medication you were already taking, prescription
errors or negligence may have occurred. It is crucial that you get legal
help during this time. Our experienced advocates can listen to the facts
of your case and provide the insightful counsel you need.
