The Danger of Over-Prescription

In our modern healthcare system, medication has become a very important part of many patients' treatment plans. We rely on prescription drugs for various kinds of ailments, illnesses, aches, and pains, and in turn we depend upon doctors and pharmacists to prescribe or distribute medications only when appropriate. These professionals go through years of training and have access to the necessary resources to determine the possible advantages and hazards of prescribing a particular drug. Unfortunately, there are commonly negligent errors committed which endanger patient health.

Types of Overprescribed Drugs

Many of the pharmaceutical products that are used in modern medicine contain powerful chemicals. When the body is subjected to these unnecessarily or excessively over time, they may prove dangerous or ineffective. The following medications are especially likely to be overprescribed and a patient may suffer if a doctor fails to thoroughly consider whether his or her medical history indicates that a drug should be given:

  • Prescription pain medication
  • Prescription antibiotics
  • Prescription anti-anxiety drugs
  • Prescription irregular heartbeat drugs
  • Prescription anti-convulsant drugs
