A stark reminder to check your prescriptions…closely

March 8, 2012

I heard the story about a pharmacy mix-up the other day that reminded me how important it is to inspect my medications closely before taking them. As the clip shows, a medication was given that looked the same in color and size, but very much was not the same. A cancer drug instead of fluoride tablets.

I found an error once. The pill was a different color than my prescription but the same size. So I looked closer and it wasn’t my medication. You can check your prescription by going to http://www.drugs.com/imprints.php and enter the number on your pill to be sure that it is what was prescribed according to the label.

    A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I think that you
    need to write more about this topic, it might
    not be a taboo matter but typically folks don’t discuss these subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!
