Prescription Guidelines
What NOT to do when filling a prescription:
• Prescribe medication or instruct the patient to take medication
in a manner that is not FDA approved.
• Prescribe medications for lengthy periods that may require
labs to confirm patient safety, (i.e., HCTZ without confirmation
of potassium serum levels, NSAIDS without confirmation of
renal function, etc).
• Prescribe high-risk medications, complex medication regimens
that require close follow-up, or medications that may adversely
interact with their medications or past allergies.
• Take a chance and prescribe a medication when there is a
history of an allergy to a similar medication.
• Prescribe drugs for non-therapeutic purposes.
