What are my options for my mom who died because of the side effects of her meds.

So sorry to hear of your loss.
Your options depend on details of your circumstances. There may be a medical malpractice/wrongful death claim and/or a product liability/wrongful death claim depending on the details/facts.
In Florida, there is a two (2) year statute of limitations for wrongful death. Accordingly, you should consult counsel as soon as possible about the details of this very sad loss you and your family suffered.
Unless mom was survived by a spouse or dependent under our statutes there is no potential recovery even if malpractice caused it. An adult surviving child has no claims.
