THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR THIS!!!   this is a good article from is just the tip of the iceberg..doctors should print clearly..write the BRAND and GENERIC name of the RX including the use–HTN, DM etc..that is what i was taught 25 years ago..pharmacists need to be vigilant about names and odd far electronic prescibing has not helped much..perhaps pre-packaging drugs as is done in many countries will decrease errors…PRIMUM NON NOCERE
