can you READ these Rxs?

DECEMBER 01, 2006

Rx 1: Registered Pharmacist Steve Breslin of Phoenixville Hospital Pharmacy in Phoenixville, Pa, was baffled when this prescription came into the pharmacy. He consulted several coworkers about the medication being ordered. Finally, he faxed the script to the prescribing physician's office for clarification. Can you solve this mystery prescription?

Rx 2: Registered Pharmacist Diana R. Roderick and her staff at CVS Pharmacy in LaVale, Md, knew this prescription had 3 orders for medications. They had no trouble identifying the first 2 scripts. The third script, however, presented a challenge. Although the staff enjoys a challenging prescription, they decided to call the prescribing physician for verification of all 3 drugs because they did not want to keep the patient waiting. Can you identify all 3 medications being ordered?
