The Dangers of Overprescribing Drugs

As pharmaceutical companies flood the market with more and more medications, the average person receives an increasing amount of prescription drugs every year.

Mistakes by physicians or pharmaceutical technicians can lead to overprescription, causing devastating health problems for consumers.

If you or someone you love has been the victim of a medical professional’s negligence, a knowledgeable Wisconsin injury attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. can help you secure the financial compensation you deserve. Contact our offices at 800-242-2874 to speak to an understanding attorney about your concerns today.

Drugs Associated with Overprescription

When a physician or pharmacist fails to pay attention to the restrictions associated with a prescription medication, they can put innocent people in serious danger. Some of the most commonly overprescribed drugs include:

  • Prescription-strength pain killer
  • Anti-anxiety pills or other mood-controlling medication
  • Sleep aids

Although drugs like these are helpful to those in need, they can also be dangerously addictive. Additionally, if a person receives an improperly high dosage of any of these medications, it can result in accidental drug overdose. If this occurs because of the recklessness of a medical professional, it may be grounds for legal action.
