What are common medications that are confused at the pharmacy or in the hospital?

There are many ways in which a pharmacy or a hospital can mix up a medication. Sometimes, messy handwriting by the doctor can cause errors, or a similar sounding drug name can cause errors. Many drugs are given incorrectly, either to the wrong person, in the wrong dose, or the wrong medication altogether.

Some of the most common drugs that are frequently mixed up in pharmacies and hospitals include:
  • Corticosteroids, used to treat asthma, joint/spine inflammation, and Ulcerative Colitis;
  • Cancer drugs;
  • Blood thinners;
  • Heart medicines;
  • Blood Pressure drugs;
