ValtrexThis one isn't too harmful, just a little funny. The prescription specifies to continue the medication for 30 YEARS!
LantusMaybe this patient works 3rd shift. Maybe that's why breakfast is at night time. Still not sure what that has to do with the bowel movement.
DexamethasoneWhen clarified by pharmacist, they intended "5 tablets by mouth as a one-time single dose".
MethotrexateTHIS is the scariest one of all these images. This could easily be deadly if the patient followed these instructions - and the pharmacist who sent it in said it was NOT caught until a refill. So the patient did receive at least one bottle labeled this way.
ChantixThis prescriber gives up fighting with the system and just manually sends instructions. While appreciated, it will require human intervention.
Zpak? or Pred taper?The medication ordered does not match the instructions or dosing regimen given. The instructions given are typical for another drug. But which is wrong? The drug name? Or the instructions?
VancomycinThat's a heck of a lot of vanc! They'll be trucking that in from multiple facilities if someone doesn't fix it!
Viral??The clinical wisdom of prescribing antiBIOTIC for a VIRAL diagnosis is...well, just a travesty.
KetoconazoleA very unique recipe, but I doubt ketoconazole will make your scallops delicious. It also isn't that great of a medication to take orally, in case you were wondering.
OfloxacinSig salad is what I call this - mixing instructions from two different medications in a way that makes zero sense.
