Published Online: Wednesday, March 1, 2006

Rx 1: Registered Pharmacist Robert E. Heroux and Lauren Heroux, PharmD, of County Square Pharmacy in Attleboro, Mass, knew that this prescription was going to be time-consuming. In order to have more time counseling patients about their medications, Dr. Heroux immediately faxed this prescription to the prescribing physician's office for translation. Can you uncover what drug the physician ordered?

Rx 2: A second prescription for syringes was a clue in solving this Rx mystery. Registered Pharmacist Michelle White of Cottonwood Apothecary in Murray, Utah, had a pretty good idea what medication was being ordered. As a precaution, she called the prescribing physician's office for verification. She was told that her assumption was correct. Can you decode this prescription?
