Rx 1: When this prescription was brought into the pharmacy, 2 pharmacy technicians at Professional Pharmacy in Pottstown, Pa, tried to determine what the prescribing physician had ordered, with no luck. They turned the prescription over to Robert J. Kistler, PharmD, RPh, for help. Dr. Kistler also was unable to figure out what medication needed to be filled. He placed a call to the physician's nurse for verification. Can you decode this prescription?
Rx 2: This prescription had Registered Pharmacist Anthony Affigato and his staff at Pathmark Pharmacy in Beverly, NJ, completely stumped. They made several attempts to interpret the prescribing physician's order, to no avail. Rather than spend more time trying to figure out this prescription, they called the physician for the correct information. Do you know what the physician ordered?
