when a generic form of drug is prescibed, which of the following must be included on the label?
a. generic form name and expiration date
b. generic form name and the brand name
c. generic form name and the prescriber
d. generic form name and the patient's telephone number
I was thinking (b)
What an interesting question! Having worked in a pharmacy and looking at my Rx bottles I find:
a, c, and d. Although b is not on the label perse it IS on the instruction sheet that comes with the vial.
