3 Questions to Ask Your Doctor When Prescribed New Medication

3 Questions to Ask Your Doctor When Prescribed New Medication

by Norris Injury Lawyers | December 28th, 2017

Prescription medications can dramatically change people’s lives for the better. In addition to having the potential to treat serious illnesses, they can also reduce pain and keep debilitating symptoms at bay. But their power inside the body also means that they’re capable of causing serious adverse reactions that can even be fatal.

At Norris Injury Lawyers, our Alabama drug injury lawyers know how devastating it is for patients to hope a new drug will make them feel better, but instead suffer a drug injury. You can reduce your chances of this happening to you by asking your doctor the following questions:

  1. Was the drug recalled? The U.S. Food and Drug Administration constantly updates its list of recalled drugs. However, doctors aren’t always aware when drugs are recalled. Asking this question can help you avoid taking a potentially dangerous drug.
  2. Is the drug necessary? Your doctor may want you to take multiple drugs to treat a condition, but not all of them will be necessary. If you feel uncomfortable taking multiple medications, ask if you can reduce the number of drugs he or she wants you to take.
  3. Will it interact with other medications or supplements? Make sure your doctor knows all medications and herbal supplements and vitamins you’re currently taking. Then, ask if the new drug will interact with any of those pills before you fill the prescription.

Being informed and asking the right questions is a great way to improve your health and decrease your chances of being injured by a drug. But it’s not a guarantee. If you have been injured by a drug, you aren’t alone. Get in touch with us today for a free consultation to find out how we can help you.
