When a doctor or pharmacist makes a mistake in prescribing or filling a prescription for a drug, the consequences can prove severe for that patient’s health. The failure to adequately review a patient’s medical history or providing the wrong medication can lead to serious adverse interactions between drugs. These interactions may require immediate medical attention, as they can prove extremely dangerous.
If your health has suffered due to a doctor or pharmacist’s negligence, you may be able to pursue legal action against the responsible party.

The Cost of Dangerous Drug Interactions
A doctor’s mistakes can have a major impact on a patient’s health, especially if these mistakes are made with hazardous drugs. A bad interaction between drugs can lead to some of the following health problems for a patient:
- Imbalance with neurotransmitters, which send messages from the brain to the body
- Liver damage, often due to a dangerous concentration of chemicals
- Inability to stop bleeding
- Heart attack
- Digestive problems
These health issues may occur quickly or may even take days and weeks to appear. In either situation, a person should receive treatment as quickly as possible.
