Rx 1: Registered Pharmacist Steve Breslin of Phoenixville Hospital Pharmacy in Phoenixville, Pa, was baffled when this prescription came into the pharmacy.

Rx 2: Registered Pharmacist Diana R. Roderick and her staff at CVS Pharmacy in LaVale, Md, knew this prescription had 3 orders for medications. They had no trouble identifying the first 2 scripts. The third script, however, presented a challenge. Although the staff enjoys a challenging prescription, they decided to call the prescribing physician for verification of all 3 drugs because they did not want to keep the patient waiting. Can you identify all 3 medications being ordered?
