Lake Placid, FL asked in Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice for Florida

Q: Is a Dr negligent when gives a med not supposed to be taken with a Rx currently taking, causing harm?

Didn't find out about warning til next day, pk'd up Rx. Given pill at hospital initially, had terrible reaction. Has been several months, continue to have intermittent blurry vision, getting worse and more often, not better as had hoped. All meds were brought with me and documented at ED.

A: It's useful that you documented the purchase of meds; also review your records for any medical attention you sought as a result of the symptoms you experienced, as those would be helpful in substantiating your experience. An issue that could arise is whether doctor was aware of medication you had originally been taking. If doctor prescribed both, the issue is self-evident. Good luck
