What can I do to make sure that I never suffer serious side effects from getting the wrong medication?

You most likely have heard of a serious or even fatal case in which a patient received the wrong medication from a pharmacy. As pharmacy error lawyers, we also hear about these incidents; we are contacted by people who have been sickened, or their loved ones have died, due to medication mistakes made by pharmacists. Although most people receive the correct prescription from their pharmacist, occasionally mistakes happen behind pharmacy counters that have serious consequences for patients.

The best thing you can do is be your own advocate. In order to prevent prescription errors—taking the wrong drug or the wrong dose of medication—you need to be aware of your prescription facts. Learn as much as you can about the prescription you were prescribed by asking questions of your doctor before leaving the doctor’s office. Then, take the pharmacist up on the consultation offered to review the medication before leaving the pharmacy. This way, you should be able to catch an error if one should occur.

It is always best to ask questions of your doctor and pharmacist to reduce your chances of receiving the wrong medication. If you or a loved one has suffered the side effects of a pharmacist’s mistake, please call Kennedy Hodges, L.L.P. to find out if you have a case against a negligent pharmacist for your injuries.
