Cincinnati Incorrect Prescription Lawyers

The Federal Employee Health Benefits Program reported that there are approximately 13,000 pharmaceuticals on the market, and new drugs are continuously being released. Patients leave their doctors’ offices with specific prescriptions they believe will help them recover from various illnesses and injuries. Unfortunately, due to the actions of negligent medical workers, patients may go home with the wrong prescription, which can result in allergic reactions, dangerous side-effects, or even death.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a pharmaceutical error, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your suffering. Contact the Cincinnati incorrect prescription attorneys at Stepleton Dugan, LLC at 513-321-7733 to discuss your legal options.

Errors from Incorrect Labeling

When a patient is given the wrong medication, there are a number of problems that can arise. Not only is there a chance that the patient could be adversely affected by the unnecessary prescription drug he or she is given, but his or her underlying condition will go untreated, which could allow the condition to progress to a point where it is no longer treatable.

There are many reasons why a person may be given the wrong medication. One common reason is that there are many drugs on the market that have very similar names, and doctors and / or pharmacists may carelessly confuse two drugs. A few examples of dangerously similar drug names include:

  • Novolog and Novolin
  • Methadone and Methylphenidate
  • Clozapine and Olanzapine
  • Flomax and Volmax
  • Serzone and Seroquel
  • Iodine and Lodine
  • Humalog and Humilin
  • Zantac and Xanax

Problems arise from more than just drug name similarities, though. Abbreviations, acronyms, and simple carelessness can all result in potentially deadly drug mix-ups. When accidents like these happen, it is important that the responsible parties are held accountable for their dangerous mistakes.
