Include a Note to Avoid Problems When the Color of A Med's Changed

You can help avoid problems when the colour or shape of a med changes...between generics, from brand to generic, etc.

Meds that look different can be confused with other meds...or can look so unfamiliar that patients may stop taking them altogether.

When you use a different-looking med, alert the patient to the change. Apply an "appearance changed" auxiliary label to warn patients that their med may have a different colour or shape.
