Cincinnati Drug Interactions and Complications Lawyer

Treatment in the modern American healthcare system frequently relies upon pharmaceutical products to cure or regulate the symptoms of a patient’s illness or condition. The chemicals which make these drugs effective are very powerful and when properly diagnosed and administered may cause significant improvements in patient health. When more than one drug is in a patient’s system, however, there is a risk that the medications could interact with each other in undesirable ways, leading to potentially life-threatening health complications.

If your doctor or pharmacist failed to observe or warn you about the possibility of dangerous drug interactions, or prescribed medications which are not to be taken together, you may be able to pursue legal action. A successful lawsuit can help you to gain financial compensation for the resulting damages. Contact a Cincinnati defective pharmaceutical product attorney at Stepleton Dugan, LLC at 513-321-7733 today to discuss your case.

Potential Consequences of Drug Interactions

Although medications are intended to help patients, dangerous health complications which arise when two or more come into contact with each other in a patient’s body can lead to health concerns more pressing than those which were initially being treated. The following is only a partial listing of potential complications associated with adverse drug interactions:

  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Seizures
  • Organ and tissue damage
  • Coma
  • Compromised immune system

In the worst case, a patient could tragically lose his or her life due to the negligence of a doctor or pharmacist. Given the severity of the adverse effects of drug interactions, it is critically important that they do not fail to observe potential hazards.
