My pharmacist did not catch a dangerous drug combination for my childs prescription. What rights do I have?
A drug interaction is an adverse reaction caused by a combination of drugs. These dangerous drug combinations are more common than we think and everyone who gets their prescriptions filled at a pharmacy is at risk. Unfortunately, this means children are also at risk.
Pharmacists have a duty of care to identify unsafe drug combinations, but all too often people fill multiple prescriptions and pharmacists often fail to identify potentially life-threatening combinations and dispense the drugs without any warnings. Children’s drug interactions Sometimes, doctors prescribe children’s medications incorrectly, often with an incorrect dosage, and a child’s body cannot handle the strengths of these medicines the same as an adult’s.
If a pharmacy error harmed your child you should consult a prescription medication attorney to learn your rights. Holding the pharmacies accountable for their mistakes is the only way to receive compensation for any harm caused and to possibly prevent future errors.
