    What to Do if Your Prescription isn’t Working – An Injury Claim Lawyer in Hughley

    If you have been diagnosed with an illness and given medication to make you feel better then you will assume that the doctor has given you the right medication for your illness and continue taking it whatever happens. This is because so many types of medication come with a list of side effects, and you are usually told that they won’t start working right away. If they never start working, though, or have extreme side effects that you didn’t expect, it is worthwhile going back to your doctor to see what else could be wrong. If you have been misdiagnosed or given the wrong medication then it is best to find out sooner rather than later, so you can be treated properly. Here are some steps to take if you feel that your prescription isn’t working.

    Research Online

    If you are suffering side effects you didn’t expect or don’t think your medication is working for your illness then look online or call NHS Direct to speak about your medication and what it is for. You may be able to find out more about it and why it may not work, as well as if it has been prescribed wrongly for the symptoms you actually have.

    Speak to Your Doctor

    Let your doctor know that you don’t feel your medication is appropriate for your symptoms. You will need to have waited a reasonable amount of time before you can claim that the medication isn’t working, but if you have, then your doctor must investigate.

    Keep a Journal

    Keep a journal of your symptoms, when they occur and any new ones which start up after you begin your medication. This can be very useful to your doctor or pharmacist in working out why the medication hasn’t worked for you and what you should be taking instead. It will also tell your doctor faster if you have been misdiagnosed.

    Should I Call an Injury Lawyer in Hughley?

    If you feel that your doctor has been negligent in their treatment of you then you should absolutely find an injury claim lawyer in Hughley and make a claim for compensation. Doctors can make mistakes, and if they are trying their best to get the right treatment for you then they cannot be penalised for this. But if they have deliberately taken their time on your diagnosis or treatment, or you feel that a mistake they made is unreasonable then you should pursue a claim for compensation.
