You may have a claim. These kinds of cases ca be very complicated. Your entire history becomes relevant.
You should visit a local lawyer to discuss your concerns.


Whether or not you have a valid lawsuit will depend upon a careful review of all relevant facts by a qualified attorney. Go to the AVVO site and find one near your home.


Winning medical malpractice cases generally need to have a clear and simple basis and very serious injuries. It's unlikely that you have a winning case. Prescribing drugs for anxiety, depression, etc. is more of an art than a science. It's very hard to sort out what problems in your life were caused by the drugs and what were due to the conditions for which they were prescribed.
