Can You Read These Rxs?

Published Online: Thursday, October 15, 2009   [ Request Print ]

Walmart pharmacy manager Phil Crank, Jr, of store #2424 in Ticonderoga, New York, could not make heads or tails of this prescription brought to him by a patient. After giving up on figuring out what the doctor had written, Crank put in a call to the prescriber’s office. The doctor’s office called back and explained the intended text of the prescription. Can you figure out what the doctor wrote?


 

Pharmacist David Bruder, co-owner of Bath Drug in Bath, Pennsylvania, and certified pharmacy technician Jane Molchany were not surprised when they were unable to read this prescription— the prescribing doctor is infamous for his poor handwriting. As part of their usual drill, they called the physician to clarify his illegible prescription. What do you think it says?
