We will use our skills and years of experience to take on your Massachusetts dangerous interaction between two drugs case. Taking multiple medications at once can present potentially fatal hazards to your health. Interactions occur when taking multiple drugs causes unexpected side effects, ranging from barely noticeable to fatal. Multiple drugs, when taken together, can both produce their effects, amplify one or each other’s effects, or reduce the effect of drugs. These interactions can cause illness or reduce the effectiveness of one or more drugs, potentially allowing the condition being treated to be unaffected. Drug interactions are not just dangerous because they can make you ill. Some interactions may affect your mental state and impair your ability to carry out what are normally ordinary tasks. For example, according to the Food and Drug Administration, taking a sleeping medication and allergy drug can impede your reaction time and make vehicle or machine operation dangerous. Patients unaware of the drugs’ interactions and their effects may get behind the wheel, increasing the likelihood of a car accident which could harm themselves or others.
We firmly believe medical professionals have a duty to protect their patients from the risks posed by dangerous drug interactions. Many of these harmful interactions occur when drug administers fail to ask their patients what drugs they are already taking. Interactions also occur when medical professionals do not properly document their patients’ medical history, or fail to consult their medical records. Your pharmacist and doctor should be aware of all medications you are taking, and your pharmacist, in particular, should be diligent in ensuring you are not given drugs which are dangerous when taken together.
