If you take prescription medications, you are among the millions of Americans who rely on the pharmaceutical industry to regulate a variety of physical and mental ailments. While many people take prescription drugs without a problem, sometimes negligent pharmaceutical companies or inattentive pharmacists make mistakes that can result in devastating damages for the affected individuals. Frighteningly, an estimated 1.5 million Americans suffer from these dangerous prescription drug errors every year.
5 Prescription Drug Dangers
Although there are a number of mistakes that can occur between the initial design of a drug to the labeling and dispensing of the medication, there are several issues that occur far more frequently than others, including:
- Dangerous side effects
- Incorrect labeling
- Incorrect dosage
- Incorrect prescription
- Hazardous drug interactions
Errors in prescription medications can cause severe complications, including brain damage, organ damage, allergic reactions, and even death in the worst cases. If you or a loved one has suffered due to a pharmaceutical product defect or error, consulting a legal representative about your options can put you in a good position for claiming compensation for your resulting damages.
