If you are sold a car and a week after driving it you realize the break suddenly stops working (manufacture error) and you crash into a wall resulting in major injuries because of this mistake, the driver should be held accountable? After all they voluntarily drove the car, nobody certainly "forced them".

The doctors are responsible for administering a healthy dose of medication. If a doctor gives a patient an unhealthy dose, or the wrong medication that results in complications, they are responsible. The patients aren't the ones who are responsible for studying the medications and knowing what to take, the doctors are. The patient only knows what the doctor tells them.

The notion that a doctor isn't responsible for the prescriptions they give there patients isn't right, not even legally. If a doctors prescribes the wrong dose by negligence, or the drug they gave them injured their patient, someone, whether it be the doctor or the drug company should be held accountable.
