When you visit the doctor, you know you’re probably going to leave with a little slip of paper.
That slip of paper is your ticket to a bottle of pills.
Special pills that your doctor – with his expert knowledge and many years of training – knows that you need.
He or she also knows how many of these pills you should take, and what strength, and for how long.
And those pills will make you well again.
And maybe not.
Shocking research recently revealed that prescriptions are not always the magic tonic that patients expect them to be.
In fact, they may be downright harmful.
Especially if they’re filled incorrectly.
Researchers have found that medication errors are common in general practice and in hospitals.
Often due to erroneous medical decisions, these errors can result in harm to patients.
You need to know how to avoid this happening to you or your loved ones.
