Many community pharmacies apply auxiliary labels to prescription bottles in an effort to notify patients of important facts and information associated with the medication(s) they are taking. These auxiliary labels vary in color and message. Unfortunately, despite these brightly colored labels many patients disregard them or do not take the time to read, understand, or inquire about their messages and importance. This has been and is becoming a serious prescription problem. Simply reading and adhering to various auxiliary labels can and will help to decrease medication errors.
