Beware of Unnecessary Antibiotics at Urgent Care Clinics

By |September 1st, 2018|Medical Errors, medical malpractice, Medication Errors|0 Comments

Urgent care clinics seem to be popping up everywhere. They certainly offer great convenience for those who find themselves suffering from a sudden ailment or injury on a weekend or after normal doctor’s office hours, and an urgent care clinic may offer a far better experience than a hospital emergency room. However, according to a recent study, many patients who visit urgent care clinics are prescribed antibiotics that they do not need. It is not uncommon [...]

Controversy Over Anticonvulsant Drugs

By |August 18th, 2018|Dangerous Drugs, medical malpractice, Medication Errors|0 Comments

In the past ten years, the prescribing of anticonvulsant drugs has increased by 535 percent according to a recent study. Anticonvulsants are typically prescribed for back and neck pain. Millions of people suffer from lower back pain. In fact, it is the number one cause of disability. Naturally, those in pain seek relief, but they may not be getting that relief from anticonvulsants, and they may be putting themselves at risk for adverse effects. It is [...]

By |July 23rd, 2018|Defective Products, medical malpractice, Medication Errors|0 Comments

An American drug manufacturer recently issued a nationwide recall for its birth control product, fearing that misplaced capsules in its pill packages could result in unintended pregnancies. The packages should have contained 24 capsules with hormones, followed by four placebo capsules – but that sequence was mistakenly reversed during packaging. The order of the pills may not be noticed by consumers – especially new users – even though the two types of capsules are different colors. [...]

Certain Medications Linked to Depression

By |July 18th, 2018|medical malpractice, Medication Errors|0 Comments

Many Americans may be taking medications that have the potential to cause depression and increase the risk of suicide. A recent study found that up to one-third of adults in the United States may be affected. Because many of these medications are common and have nothing to do with to depression, both patients and healthcare providers may be unaware of the connection. After research that studied the medication use patterns of 26,000 adults between 2005 and [...]

Millions of Americans Taking Wrong Pills for Heart Disease

By |July 13th, 2018|medical malpractice, Medication Errors|0 Comments

A recent study has revealed that many Americans may be taking the wrong medications to address cardiovascular disease and stroke risks. A patient’s heart attack or stroke risk is often assessed through a routine set of questions, but those questions are based on data that was gathered approximately 70 years ago from people who were between the ages of 30 and 62. Medical care, diet, and the environment have changed significantly since the 1940s, and relying [...]

Opioids in Children’s Medicines

By |June 22nd, 2018|medical malpractice, Medication Errors, Opioid Lawsuits|0 Comments

It may seem like common sense that children should not be given medication that contains opioid ingredients. But until a recent FDA announcement, that it will restrict these ingredients, opioids were commonly included in children’s cough and cold medicines. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, cough and cold medicines that contain codeine, hydrocodone, or any other opioid ingredients, should not be given to children of any age. The FDA is now requiring that safety [...]

Risk of Anti-Depressants During Pregnancy  

By |June 2nd, 2018|medical malpractice, Medication Errors, Physician Negligence|0 Comments

Anti-depressants are a useful tool that can help those affected by depression manage their symptoms. Recently, however, there have been concerns about the effects of anti-depressants on fetuses when taken by pregnant women. Some studies have linked anti-depressants to complications such as miscarriage, developmental defect, or autism, while others have seemingly disproved these connections. With so much conflicting research out there, it can be hard for expecting mothers and their doctors to know how to proceed. [...]

Wrong Prescription Medication Can Cause Injuries

By |May 27th, 2018|medical malpractice, Medication Errors|0 Comments

In 2016, doctors in the United States wrote more than 4.6 billion drug prescriptions, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. That astounding number does not include over-the-counter drugs or vaccines. In 2011, the number of drugs prescribed was 4.2 billion. Clearly Americans’ reliance on prescription medications is growing. With the high volume of prescriptions being written each day, it would probably be shocking if there was not a huge number of prescribing errors – and there [...]

By |May 12th, 2018|medical malpractice, Medication Errors, Opioid Lawsuits|0 Comments

Some believe that the opioid crisis in the United States has become an epidemic. Current statistics tell us that 115 Americans die every day from opioid overdoses. Some prescription pain relievers fall under the category of opioids. The abuse and addiction of pain medication often begins when a physician prescribes opioids after a patient experiences an injury. Now that the abuse and over-prescribing of opioids has become more widely recognized, many are wondering what to do [...]
