Pharmacists in recent history have been experiencing more and more legal trouble. This is due to the fact that pharmacists have taken on more responsibilities than what was expected of them in the past. Pharmacist’s original definition was, “drug distributor,” and the physician writing the prescription was held liable for any mistakes. But today they do a lot more. They are now seen as specialists in drugs and drug therapy, and as such they are starting to be held liable. Pharmacists may even be held responsible for advice given about over the counter medication and advice given to customers about minor maladies.
