Prescription Medication Mishaps: Confusing Prescription Information Fliers May Change Soon
Frank J. Dito, Jr.
Some people find the drug information fliers that come with prescription drugs to be confusing and not easy to understand. In fact, when asked, many patients say that they are either confused because of the medical language that is represented in the information fliers or because of the inconsistency they see in the medication fliers that are received from the pharmacy.
The information fliers that are attached to medications are meant to be used help patients identify medication, understand how to use the medication, know what to avoid while on the medication and to know what side effects to look for while they are on the medication but when the information fliers are difficult to read to the most of the people taking medications there is a general understanding that maybe something should be done about this problem.
When you have patients that do not understand their medication information pamphlets or are seeing inconsistent instructions with the medications it can result in a potentially dangerous situation.
The Food and Drug Administration is working on standardizing the pamphlets and coming up with an easier way for patients to read and understand the pamphlets that come with prescription medications.
