can you READ these Rxs?

NOVEMBER 01, 2006

Rx 1: Registered Pharmacist Laura Blankenship of Wal-Mart Pharmacy in Mexia, Tex, was not surprised to see another script from this prescribing physician. It is par for the course from this local doctor when writing prescriptions?illegible handwriting. Blankenship followed the normal procedure for this physician's scripts and called the office to clarify the medications being ordered. Can you identify this drug?

Rx 2: Registered Pharmacists Jeanne H. Erickson and Margo Arnesen and Eileen Glad, CPhT, of Warroad Heritage Pharmacy in Warroad, Minn, were completely stumped by this prescription. They made several attempts to decode this prescription with no success. Eventually, they called the prescribing physician's office for verification. A nurse at the office said they were used to getting calls about scripts written by this particular doctor. Can you unscramble this prescription?
