Drug Interactions and Complications
Drug interactions and complications can accompany the use of most, if not all, pharmaceutical products; however, consumers are supposed to be warned about these possible interactions and complications, and it is the responsibility of the pharmaceutical companies and pharmacists to ensure these warnings are known. Unfortunately, sometimes these parties are negligent or irresponsible in their duties, and either they do not adequately test for certain dangerous complications of drugs or fail to warn consumers. As a result, a consumer may suffer serious harm or illness after using the medication.
Possible Interactions and Complications
When you take a medication that interacts negatively with other medications you may be on or has unknown and dangerous complications, your health could be seriously compromised. For instance, when a pharmaceutical company or pharmacist fails to warn consumers of these potential dangers, a consumer may suffer from:
- Allergic reactions
- Physical sickness
- Physical illness
- Cognitive disability
- Loss of sensory ability
Any of these side effects could be possible when drugs interact poorly or when a consumer is not made aware of certain complications that accompany the use of medications or pharmaceutical products.
