Can You Read These Rxs?

JULY 01, 2008

Thomas Wells, PharmD, of CVS/pharmacy #2521 in Hickory, North Carolina, had no idea what medication was being prescribed with this script. He made several attempts to decipher the handwriting and even conferred with members of the staff. When no one could figure out this script, he called the physician?s office for clarification. Do you know what drug is being ordered?



Registered Pharmacist Lynne Pandoff, pharmacy manager of Meijer Inc #123 in Southgate, Michigan, was pretty sure she knew what medication was being ordered. She wanted to double-check with the physician?s office before filling the script. The physician?s office returned her call later in the day and confirmed her answer. Can you unscramble this script?
