Should I call my doctor if I think I’ve been hurt by my prescription medication?

Yes. It is important to call your doctor if you are experiencing any pain or unexpected symptoms. Your doctor needs to:

  • Determine if your symptoms are related to your prescription medication or another cause. This can help prevent the injury from continuing or worsening, and it may be important evidence if you decide to file a legal claim.
  • Take you off the prescription medication that is causing you harm and likely replace it with a different medication. You were on the medication for a reason. It is important that you do not let that reason go untreated and, instead, that you and your doctor find a safer treatment.
  • Determine what treatment you need to recover from your injuries. You may need further medical intervention to recover from the injury caused by your prescription medication. A doctor can help explain the potential benefits and side effects of each treatment option so that you can stay in charge of your health and make an informed decision about your recovery.

 

Thus, consulting with a doctor is important to your physical health and potential physical recovery.

But a Doctor Won’t Solve Your Legal Problems

While a doctor may provide useful evidence for your legal claim, a doctor will not help you file a case against a pharmaceutical company. Instead, you will need to contact an experienced pharmaceutical class action lawyer to discuss your legal rights and possible recovery.
