Don't Count On Med Labelling and Packaging to Be Foolproof

You can help prevent errors from risky med labelling and packaging.

Similar packaging. Inspect labelling and packaging carefully to ensure you have the right med...strength...formulation...and size.

For example, Singulair (montelukast) 5 and 10 mg strengths both come in a blue and white box of 30 tabs...and generic betamethasone valerate 0.05% and 0.1% creams also have nearly identical packaging.
