Secrets of Success

Check Your Prescriptions



Check your prescriptions! Is it your name? Is the refill the same ! Is the dosage what your doctor told you? Recently a pharmacy filled the correct Med. but the wrong person, and the same pharmacy misread the doctor's writing and filled the medicine in a much stronger dosage than prescribed. emoticon

More Information:

It is easy to assume that the pharmacy will not make a mistake, but unfortunately this is not always the case. If in doubt, check with the doctor.

  • i used to be a pharmacy tech. if doctors would write where people could read it it helps. now is a good time for pharmacy techs. why. because the age of computers. most doctors now days have the computer print out the rx so all they have to do is sign their name. - by MARLADIA
