Prescription Mistake Attorney
The use of prescription drugs is very common and the number of people taking multiple prescription drugs is staggering. Doctors and pharmacists have a great responsibility to their patients to ensure an error does not happen. Medical professionals must understand the chemical effects of each drug they prescribe as well as the possible side effects when taken with other prescribed and over-the-counter drugs.
We all have a responsibility to be forthcoming with any and all over-the-counter medication we may be taking, even if you find it embarrassing. If you are taking a diet pill, please advise your doctor so he is aware and it is placed in your chart. Diet medication may interact with other prescription medication and the outcome could be deadly.
