CAN YOU READTHESE Rxs?

OCTOBER 01, 2004

Rx1: This was 1 of 9 prescriptions from the same physician that Registered Pharmacist Judy Schultz, of the Apothecary Surgical Supply Inc in Lansing, Mich, received. Schultz and her coworkers could not figure what drug was being ordered. After a call to the prescribing physician's office, Schultz had the necessary information to fill the script. Can you determine what the physician was ordering?

Rx 2: When the patient brought this prescription into the pharmacy, Don Lavasseur, RPh, of Publix Pharmacy in Jupiter, Fla, studied it for a few minutes. Unable to understand the prescription order, Lavasseur asked the patient if she knew what medication the physician was giving her. The patient gave Lavasseur the name of the drug. Can you figure out this prescription?
