Rx 1
It’s no wonder that pharmacist Charles Deboyace, RPh, of Price Chopper Pharmacy in Oneonta, New York, could not decipher this messy Rx—the physician’s order is for a medication strength that is not commercially available.
Can you figure out what’s being prescribed?



Rx 2
Unfortunately, the patient who brought this script to Cecil Shern, RPh, owner of Cecil’s Pharmacy in Lehi, Utah, was unable to provide any clues about its contents. Luckily, the physician’s nurse cleared up the confusion.
Can you guess this Rx?
