Wisconsin Incorrect Prescription Attorneys

Doctors are trained to diagnose medical conditions and prescribe medications, while pharmacists undergo training to properly dispense them. Thus, one might assume that the risk of dangerous incorrect prescription errors is minimal. However, an estimated 1.5 million Americans experience prescription errors each year.

If you are given the wrong prescription, it can have devastating effects on your life. Medications are very powerful, and pharmacists should always take the time to make sure that you get the correct drug. If you are the victim of an incorrect prescription, you should not let this dangerous act of negligence go unpunished. To discuss your legal options, contact an experienced Wisconsin incorrect prescription lawyer from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, today at 800-242-2874.

Potential Causes of Prescription Errors

Even if a doctor prescribes you the correct medication, a pharmacist can still fail to dispense the right drug. These failures are absolutely unacceptable, regardless of the circumstances. Potential causes of prescription errors include:

  • Illegible doctor’s handwriting
  • Overwork at busy pharmacies
  • Similar-sounding drug names

Problems from Incorrect Prescriptions

If you receive the wrong prescription, you may be exposed to strong drugs that do not actually address your problem. This may have permanent repercussions. For example, if you were prescribed eye drops but you actually receive ear drops, you may suffer long-term vision damage. Should you accidentally receive a blood thinner instead of the drug you were prescribed, its interactions with other drugs can cause fatal internal bleeding.
