Celebrity deaths and prescription drug interactions:

Whitney Houston among celebrity deaths linked to mixing prescriptions and alcohol.

Dangerous prescription drug interactionsOver 750,000 people die in the United States every year from something rarely perceived by the public as dangerous: prescription drug interactions. Most people assume that if a doctor prescribed a drug then it is safe and they end up casually mixing them with other prescriptions and sometimes with alcohol.

But prescription drugs can be dangerous and Whitney Houston’s death shows just how vulnerable anyone is to dangerous prescriptions interactions.

Celebrity deaths and prescription drug interactions

Whitney Houston died this month following reports that a dangerous mix of prescription drugs and alcohol may have contributed to her death. Bottles of prescription pills were found inside Houston’s hotel room and are said to have included anti-anxiety medication Xanax, antibiotic amoxicillin, and Ibuprofen. The investigation of her death, including toxicology reports, will determine how much of a role these prescriptions played in her death. The investigation will also determine if any criminal negligence was involved.

Several recent celebrity deaths have been linked to fatal prescription drug interactions, including Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger, and Anna Nicole Smith. Michael Jackson’s former doctor was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2009 after prosecutors said he acted with reckless criminal negligence, directly causing his patient’s death. Jackson was 50 years old.

Deadly prescription interactions are an alarming trend

If you take several medications you need to be aware of how the medicines interact with one another. Sometimes, doctors prescribe several medications to one person without ever communicating with each other about them. Also, too many pharmacists fail to catch dangerous prescription interactions at the pharmacy. This is an increasingly dangerous, and sometimes fatal, issue that puts consumers at risk every day.

As prescription drug sales soar, consumers constantly at risk of mistakes

Celebrity deaths draw our attention to dangerous prescriptions, yet we tend to forget about the danger soon after. But you have to be constantly vigilant about the prescriptions you take and you cannot trust that your doctor and pharmacist will catch dangerous drug interactions. Pharmacists and doctors make mistakes. That’s the simple truth. But the consequences of those mistakes can be life-altering, or even fatal.

Many pharmacists work 12 hours a day, sometimes without breaks, to meet copmany quotas and they rely heavily on pharmacy technicians, who are often as young as eighteen, to fill prescriptions.

U.S. spends $282 billion a year due to medical mistakes

According to a study that reviewed of thousands of medical records, the United States spends $282 billion annually on deaths due to medical mistakes. And that’s not even a total figure, since only a fraction of medical errors are actually reported. Actual medical mistakes are likely to be much higher because doctors fear retaliation.
