Common Symptoms of a Prescription Error

The job of medical professionals like pharmacists is a serious one. This is because one wrong dose or incorrect pill can lead to significant health ramifications for patients who have entrusted these professionals to provide them with the proper medication. Unfortunately, despite years of schooling and training, healthcare professionals do not always give their full attention to the important task of filling a prescription correctly, and mistakes can occur. 

If you believe you may have been the victim of a prescription error, there are several signs to look for. Some common symptoms of a prescription error include the following:

  • Nausea
  • Migraines
  • Body pain
  • Lack of pain relief
  • Loss of concentration and motivation
  • Change in personality or general attitude
  • Drowsiness or excessive fatigue
  • Dramatic weight loss or gain
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Body temperature changes

Your prescription error lawyer can help you understand if a prescription error is to blame for the harm you have suffered. If you determine that a prescription error is to blame for your losses, you have the right to hold the liable party responsible for their negligence.

Can You Recover Damages After a Prescription Error?

Depending on the specific details of your case, if you have suffered harm due to a prescription error, you may be eligible to recover certain damages for your losses. The damages you may be eligible to recover after a prescription error caused your harm include the following:

  • Medical expenses: After a prescription error caused negative side effects, your health may suffer. You may require medical care as a result, which can be costly. You should be compensated for the cost of any medical expenses you have incurred due to the prescription error. 
  • Lost wages: If you were unable to work due to the injuries suffered as a result of a prescription error, you should be compensated for all present and future lost wages.
  • Pain and suffering: You should also be compensated for all physical and mental pain and suffering you have had to endure due to the negligence of the party responsible for the prescription error that led to your harm.
