Many customers every year are victims of drug mistakes that involve confusing the prescription with another that looks or sounds similar. Although these mistakes should never occur, they unfortunately do at an alarming rate. In fact, sound-alike and look-alike medication mistakes are one of the most preventable causes of pharmacy errors and occur from:

  • Confusing similar drug names
  • Mishearing a prescription name
  • Misinterpreting a poorly written prescription without confirmation
  • Entering the prescription incorrectly into the computer
  • Taking the wrong medication off the shelf thinking it is the right one

Drugs that sound-alike or look-alike include: Inderal and Adderall, Prilosec and Prozac, Clobazam and Clonazepam, Navane and Norvasc, and Keflex and Keppra. While these drugs, along with many more, may look or sound similar, they have different purposes and could cause patients health problems.
