Author: Mark S. Pass of Lawrence Pharmacy in Gainesville, Ga

Pharmacist Mark S. Pass of Lawrence Pharmacy in Gainesville, Ga, had no idea where to begin when filling this Rx. In addition to not being able to decipher what medications were ordered, the number of prescriptions was baffling. When he was unable to make heads or tails of this prescription, pharmacist Pass called the nurse for verification. Can you figure out how many drugs are on this 1 prescription blank and what medications are prescribed?
