This pain medicine case involves a male patient in Oklahoma with a known history of being a poor drug metabolizer. Shortly before the events of the incident in question, the patient sought treatment for abdominal pain from the defendant doctor. During this initial visit the patient was prescribed pain medication. The patient presented back to the defendant with complaints of vertigo, confusion, and difficulties talking and thinking. Nevertheless, the prescription was continued, and the man was told he would merely need a canalith re-positioning procedure to counteract the vertigo. Follow up care was sought by the patient again less than a month later. Medical documentation indicates that he presented in a wheelchair with noted dizziness and trouble walking. The patient then sought treatment from a new doctor shortly after this visit. Once again, his chief complaints were dizziness, nausea, and ataxia. The new doctor assessed the patient as having akathisia due to his use of prescribed medication. At this point he was advised to discontinue any use of the medication. The patient was diagnosed with probable drug induced dyskinesia with a high likelihood of irreversibility.
