Unfortunately at some point while receiving medical care, you or a loved one could be given the wrong prescription, making you the victim of Georgia medical malpractice. You could be able to file a claim settlement with the help of an Atlanta law firm if this has happened to you. 

Sometimes errors happen because so many drugs have names that sound alike. If you doctor does not pay attention, he or she could give you the wrong prescription. Here are some common sound-alike drugs that could cause Georgia medical malpractice:
  • Adderall vs. Inderal;
  • Celebrex vs. Celexa;
  • Codeine vs. Lodine;
  • Lamictal vs. Lamisil;
  • Oxycodone vs. Oxycontin;
  • Prednisone vs. prednisolone; and
  • Xanax vs. Zantac. 
If your doctor, nurse or pharmacist was distracted or misread the label when giving you your medication you could end up with the wrong prescription, which could cause you illness or injury.

If you were given the wrong prescription because your doctor made an error with a sound-alike medication, you could be able to receive compensation for your damages with a claim settlement. Seek guidance from an Atlanta law firm today to learn more about your options.
