According to a report published by the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, more than 1.5 million medication errors occur each year in the United States.

- Loss of consciousness, imbalances in metabolism, or other impediments to daily living
- Seizures, heart attacks, or blood clots
- Disease progression due to the medication dosage being too low
- Serious disability or death due to an overdose of medication
