Prescription Nightmare

Following a few simple rules will greatly decrease the chance that you, a consumer, will consume a misfilled prescription.
  1. Always read the label to assure that the name on the prescription is the same as the individual who is taking the medication.
  2. If the prescription is new, assure that the tablet matches the medication description on the label.
  3. If the prescription is a refill, assure that the medication looks the same as it did last time. If it looks different, check the medication description on the label to assure that it matches the container's contents.
  4. If there is any doubt as to the contents of the prescription bottle, always call the pharmacist to verify the medication before taking the first dose.
