Nobody wants to suffer a prescription drug error, but when it happens to you, you’re thankful you were able to get through it without any permanent ill effects. However, if it had happened to your child or your parent, they may not have been so fortunate.

According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the patients most likely to be hospitalized for medication-related injuries were people older than 65. Young people were next in line; one in five emergency cases due to medication mistakes involved children or teenagers.

There are a few ways you can protect your family from suffering a wrongful death due to medication error. The following list has helpful questions to ask your loved one if you suspect a drug error has occurred:

  • How do you feel? Get him or her to talk about any and all symptoms, even if the victim doesn’t think they are serious.
  • When did you start to feel different? Find out when your loved one took the last dose of the drug.
  • Where is the medication bottle? Check to make sure your loved one’s name is on the label of the medication, that the dosage is correct, and that the pills inside match the medicine’s description.
  • What else are you taking? Check for possible interactions with over-the-counter drugs and supplements.

Remember: if you believe your relative is experiencing an adverse reaction to a medication, always seek medical advice. If your Texas pharmacy error resulted in an injury, you can get legal advice from a board-certified prescription error lawyer today by callingKennedy Hodges at 888-526-7616 for a free consultation.
