How Drug Labels Can Cause Serious Medication Mistakes

You’re not the first person to be confused by drug labeling. It seems like some packages are designed to confuse people: strange letters after the drug name, a list of things you shouldn’t do while taking the medication—the only thing you can clearly understand is the company logo. 

The American Society of Hospital Pharmacists (ASHP) has also noticed this trend in drug packaging. In order to reduce prescription drug injuries, the ASHP recommends that drug manufacturers: 

  • Involve pharmacists, nurses, physicians and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration when making decisions about drug names, labeling, and packaging.
  • Check current trademarked and generic names for possible look-alike or sound-alike errors before making a final decision on a new drug name.
  • Ensure that new drug packaging is not too similar to any trademarked or generic drug on the market.
  • Highlight any special instructions or warnings on the package labeling.
  • Design the product label with respect to patients. For example, the product name and strength should be more prominent than company names or logos.
  • Make all measureable drugs available in unit-of-dispensing containers (such as premeasured single-use syringes) when possible.
  • Clearly differentiate between bulk and single packaging when multiple dosage forms of a medication are available. 
  • Communicate any product changes, such as dosage forms, interactions or side effects, with health-care providers and drug reporting agencies.
