Look Out for Oral Contraceptives With Similar Names or Packaging
You play a key role in preventing product selection errors with oral contraceptives (OCs).
These meds can be prone to error because of look-alike/sound-alike names...similar-coloured packaging...and common manufacturers.
Revisit strategies for ensuring your patient gets the right oral contraceptive. Dispensing the wrong one may lead to side effects, such as bleeding or nausea...or even pregnancy.
