Kankakee Drug Interaction and Complications Attorney
The science behind prescription drug production and distribution is extremely technical. Given the potential for adverse drug interactions between medications, it is important that their prescription is overseen by a professional. When a doctor, nurse, or pharmacist fails to note that a particular drug is likely to react with something that is already in a patient’s system, the results can be catastrophic.
If you or someone you love has suffered injury or illness because of a drug interaction or complication, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your losses.

Health Concerns Associated with Drug Interactions and Complications
Prescription drugs are typically designed to target one specific condition or part of the body. Moreover, there is no way that they can possibly be tested for all the variations in a future patient’s body chemistry. When either of these limitations is brought to light by drug interactions or complications, the effects can be dire. Some of possible consequences of drug complications include:
- Internal organ failure
- Difficulty breathing
- Uncontrollable fever
- Rashes or hives
- Brain function problems
- Cardiac arrest
In a worst case scenario, a patient may tragically lose his or her life due to the effects of a medication. When this occurs because of medical malpractice or pharmaceutical company negligence, it is important that those at fault are held accountable. Frequently, a civil lawsuit is the most appropriate means of ensuring that justice is done.
