Most of us trust that if we are prescribed medication that it will be the correct drug and the correct dosage. Taking the wrong medication or dosage can lead to undesirable side effects, and, in rare cases, death. Whilst we should always check the leaflets that are included in the packaging of the medicines we take, sometimes mistakes are made by pharmacies, GPs or Hospitals that are out of our control.
If you or a loved one have suffered as a result of taking the wrong medicines, we are here to help and advise.For help a little later
