5 Things to Ask Your Pharmacist Before You Walk Away from the Counter

Medication errors from the pharmacy are more common than many people think. Patients should never assume they will never become a victim. However, if you were injured as a result of a medication error, then you should consult with an attorney to learn if you have any right to pursue legal action.
Here are 5 things you should ask your pharmacist before you walk away from the counter:
 
  • ·         How should I take this medicine?
  • ·         When does the medication begin to work?
  • ·         Is there anything I should avoid while taking it?
  • ·         What side effects should I look for?
  • ·         Are there any special instructions for using this medicine? 
Some medicines are not effective or could lead to illness if you take them the wrong way (such as crushing up pills). This is why it’s important to know how you should take it.

You should also understand when you can expect the medication to begin to work, which can help indicate any potential problems. And by knowing what things should be avoided (such as alcohol, driving, operating machinery), you can prevent injuries.

Not only should you know what side effects to look for but you should also know what you should do if they occur. Making sure there are no other special instructions to be aware of can help prevent potential problems.

Even if you have done your part, you may have still been injured as a result of a medication error. You should contact a
Kentucky medication error lawyer to learn what your next step should be.
