Be vigilant to avoid being the victim of a medication error

You have been experiencing several symptoms that have affected your energy levels and have left you feeling tired, unwell and defeated. In an effort to feel like yourself again, you paid a visit to your health care provider to get some direction as you sought a solution to solve your health concerns. Your doctor prescribes you an antibiotic and you are on your way. However, have you ever considered that maybe your doctor can make a mistake and leave you at risk of suffering additional symptoms because he prescribed the incorrect medication? At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we have helped many people in New York to learn about the dangers of prescription errors. 

According to the Mayo Clinic, even though medication errors occur frequently throughout the United States, many of them are completely preventable with just a bit of extra attention. If your doctor prescribes you the incorrect drug, you may notice a variety of interesting side effects including confusion, an increase in your body temperature and a faster heartbeat. You may also feel easily agitated. If left unattended, these symptoms could become increasingly worse and in serious cases, you could end up overdosing. 

One of the best things you can do to avoid taking the wrong drug is to pay attention when your doctor is writing your prescription. Ask about the purpose of the medication and what symptoms it should help to alleviate. When you arrive at the pharmacy, check with your pharmacist to verify that you have the correct medication and that you understand how to take it the right way. You should also avoid mixing pills, chewing pills that are meant to swallow and sharing your medication with other people. 

By following these tips and being an advocate for your own health care, you can prevent medication errors from affecting your health and wellbeing. For more information about how to stay safe from prescription errors, visit our web page.
