How to understand your prescription bottle label?

Did you know that approximately 50% of Americans may not be taking their medications correctly? According to research, poorly designed labels and confusing instructions are just some reasons why people take their medication incorrectly.

The label on your prescription bottle tells you more than just simple information. They are the unique infographic of your treatment plan. Understanding the prescription bottle label ensures your health and safety.

Although medication label designs vary from pharmacy to pharmacy, state board laws regulate important information shown on these labels, such as:

  • Patient’s Name

  • Name of the Medication

  • Strength of the Medication

  • Prescription Number or Information

  • Medication instructions

  • Warning and side effects

  • Pharmacy Information

Pharmacies usually provide patients with more detailed printed information regarding their dispensed medication and offer pharmacist consultations to ensure patients understand their treatment plan.

To help you better understand your prescription labels, we created this infographic with easy-to-read information that will help you stay on top of your treatment plan.
