Simple Explanation on What to Do When a Pharmacy Gives You the Wrong Medication, Prescription, or Dosage. This video will teach you about what types of mistakes Pharmacists commonly make and what you can do to preserve your health and legal rights. http://MattLaw.com - Matt Powell, Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer When a Pharmacy gives you the wrong dosage, prescription, or medication it's called Pharmacy Negligence. Although Pharmacy mistakes are not considered Medical Malpractice, the Statute of Limitations on a Pharmacy negligence claim is only two years. When a Pharmacy or Pharmacist dispenses the wrong medication or amount, the results can be fatal. At a Pharmacy, unfortunately, it's not really the Pharmacists who run the show. It's big Pharma and corporations who place greed and profits over people that cause most pharmaceutical mistakes. Common Mistakes Made by a Pharmacy Include the Following: High-Volume, High-Stress Pharmacies: Some pharmacies are designed to run like a fast food restaurant. This places a lot of stress on the employees and pharmacists, and increases the likelihood of the wrong medication or amount given to people. A study shows that the most common causes of Pharmacy errors were due to too many phone calls, busy days, too many customers, lack of concentration, no one available to double-check, staffing shortages, similar drug names, no time to counsel the patient, illegible prescriptions, and misinterpreted prescriptions. Sound-Alike Errors: Many medications have names that sound extremely similar to other prescriptions. The consequences of filling a prescription with a sound-alike medication could be the difference between getting lice poison instead of yeast infection treatment. Improper Compounding Errors: Some pharmacies have the pharmacists literally create the medicine ordered by the doctor. This can lead to compounding errors, which can mean someone accidentally getting 3,000 times the strength of what was prescribed. Substitution of Generic Drugs Without Informing the Patient: Sometimes Pharmacies dispense a generic version of a drug without informing the patient. Usually this doesn't cause any problems, but occasionally it does. Failing to Counsel the Patient: A good pharmacist will ask the following questions: 1) What did your doctor tell you the drug is for? 2) How were you told to take the medication? 3) What directions did the doctor provide for taking the medication? When a pharmacy dispenses the wrong prescription, medication, or dosage, it can lead to serious injuries or even death. Pharmacy mistakes are avoidable and if you suspect a pharmacy mistake, here are a few steps you can take immediately to preserve your health and legal rights: 1) Call Your Doctor Immediately 2) Call the Pharmacy Immediately 3) Don't give the bad medication back under any circumstances 4) Save the medication, bag, receipt, and bottle 5) Don't give a recorded statement to anyone without a lawyer If you have any more questions about what to do when a pharmacy gives you the wrong prescription or dosage, please feel free to call me, Matt Powell, at 1-844-MATTLAW.

The pharmacies need to hire more people, but they won't because they lose profits and put their customers at risk. Thanks Matt

What if you have an illness that is life-threatening and you MUST stay on the medication to avoid problems and no gap in Medicine in permitted? My mail order pharmacy always gets m fixation our late in the mail.

I suggest you write them a letter and put them on notice of their mistakes and try to get them to stop delaying your medication. Or, change pharmacies. Or hire an attorney in your area to file a suit against them if the delay in providing your medication causes you serious injuries, complications or other problems. Good Luck. Matt
