Common Causes of Medication Errors

This is why it is especially important to ask as your medical provider as many questions as possible to ensure that what is being prescribed is the right medication for you. Establishing open communication with your doctor can help prevent medication errors from happening in the future. 

Other causes of medication errors are the fault of medication providers. Examples of ways that medication providers may cause medication errors include failure to warn of side effects or mislabeling.
