Rx One: Jennifer White, PharmD, of Raven Drug Co in Raven, Va, knew this prescription's illegible handwriting was going to be a problem. White immediately called the physician's office and spoke with 2 different nurses. Both nurses also had trouble reading this prescription. They tracked down the prescribing physician for clarification and informed White of the drug being ordered. Can you decipher this prescription?

Rx Two:When this prescription was brought into Goldin Pharmacy in Haledon, NJ, registered pharmacist Asma Ali and Gina Cannizzano, CPhT, were unsure what drug was being ordered. After looking the paper over closely with no luck in determining the medication, they called the physician's office for verification. The physician confirmed the prescription. Do you know what the physician wrote?
