The medication the doctor prescribed made me sicker. Can I sue?Return to FAQ Videos
Medications work differently in different people and may have different effects on them. Both doctors and pharmacists are in the business of making you well. That is the intended purpose. If a medication is making you feel more sick, then it’s important for you to contact your doctor. If you can’t reach your doctor, contact your pharmacist, and let them know what your symptoms are. They can then counsel with you or perhaps even change the medication. It is not, in my opinion, a viable cause of action for a lawsuit because you have other options for making you feel better.
