Pharmacy Error and Drug Interactions
A pharmacist’s responsibilities run much further than simply filling out a prescription and communicating with insurance companies. An important part of any pharmacist’s job should be to find out how a patient could be harmed by the particular medicine they are being given and to then inform the patient of these risks.
Part of this responsibility means finding out if the drug will interact with any medication the individual is already taking. If you have been the harmed by a negligent pharmacist who failed to warn you about a drug interaction, contact the San Antonio personal injury lawyers of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers at (210) 999-9999 to learn more about your legal rights.
Drug Interaction Complications and Dangers
A drug interaction can be something as benign as slight anxiety or as severe as death. Many drug interactions are not reported because the patient feels that it was not serious enough to warrant action. However, drug interactions can lead to extremely serious harm, including:
- Heart failure
Any issue involving pharmacy error should be reported at once, even if it is a small interaction or mistake. Pharmacists have a very important job in which the health of hundreds of patients is in their hands. It is vital that they are held accountable for their actions.
