Signs of an allergic reaction to a prescription medication:
- low blood pressure;
- difficulty breathing;
- skin irritation (hives, bumps, blistering, redness);
- swelling (lips, tongue, eyelids);
- bloody diarrhea;
- sore throat;
- shock; and
Allergic reactions aren’t always preventable. However, if a doctor failed to ask about allergies to medicines or failed to ask about your medical history, this may be a case of negligence.
Another example of doctor liability occurs when a doctor didn’t consider other medications you are taking when they wrote you their prescription. If a doctor prescribed more than 1 kind of medicine and didn’t look into the dangers of combining it with the medications you are currently taking, this may also be a case of medical negligence.
You should contact a Louisville medication mistake lawyer as soon as possible, in order to discuss your case. A lawyer may be able to determine if you have a legitimate claim against the doctor.
