A pharmacist will never prescribe a drug. Your general practitioner, family doctor, or specialist should only write a prescription for you. That prescription is forwarded to the pharmacy as you leave their office. The pharmacy is next responsible for filling the order as directed by the physician. Your problem could get worse if you get the wrong medication or the wrong advice on the label. You may also experience severe side effects, significant damage, or even death. Due to a pharmacy's incompetence, some people acquire drug addictions or suffer from drug overdoses. Unexpected side effects you or a loved one are experiencing after taking a drug may be the result of pharmacist negligence.
