How Do Prescription Medication Errors Occur?

If you or a loved one’s health has been compromised due to an error involving a prescription medication, you may be wondering what led to the problem. Doctors and pharmacists can make avoidable mistakes in prescribing or administering medications, which results in needless harm to the patient. Some examples of these oversights include:

  • Administering the wrong dosage
  • Labeling medication incorrectly
  • Dispensing the wrong medication
  • Failure to warn patient of side effects
  • Not educating the patient about side effects
  • Ignoring dangerous drug interactions
  • Not involving the patient in the decision about which drug to use

High-Risk Prescription Medications

Administering the wrong medication can be particularly devastating when a high-risk prescription is involved. These medications can include drugs like Gentamicin, Lamictal, Vioxx, or many antipsychotic drugs which are known to have serious side effects.

In some cases, if the wrong dose of these drugs is administered or if they are given improperly by a doctor or pharmacist, the consequences could be potentially fatal. If you or a loved one has been seriously harmed, we can fight for you in a medication error lawsuit.
