There are many different prescription drugs on the market today that have great medical benefits and help people with a wide range of conditions and illnesses. However, numerous prescription drugs over the last several decades have had no effect on patients, much of which is due to a lack of testing before they are released. While all prescription drugs have some level of risk associated with them, they are far more dangerous, when they are not properly researched or if they are prescribed by someone lacking in medical authority. All prescription drugs contain ingredients that can be dangerous if taken incorrectly or prescribed by someone who is not a doctor and does not have the authority to do so. If you or a loved one has taken a prescription drug that has caused some type of personal injury or illness, it is a good idea for you to contact our team of lawyers at Atkins & Markoff. If your doctor or pharmacy representative has failed to properly prescribe, compound, or distribute your prescription and as a result you have become ill, you may be able to take legal action.
Common Injuries and Illnesses from Dangerous Drugs
Drugs that have either been prescribed without adequate research, have been improperly compounded, or were prescribed by a doctor who did not have proper credentials, can be extremely dangerous and cause a wide range of injuries and illnesses. The most common side effects from prescription drugs include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, irritability, lethargy, fatigue, and so on. If you or a loved one has experienced any of these symptoms and have not been properly monitored by an experienced physician, you could experience more serious internal injuries. Additional serious side effects may lead to stomach ulcers, liver problems, heart issues, and more. Taking dangerous drugs also poses a risk of accident or injury while under the influence of the prescribed medication. It is important for you to contact an Oklahoma personal injury lawyer from Atkins & Markoff if you have experienced any negative side effects as a result of taking a dangerous drug.
