To the Editor,

Mistakes made by pharmacies have been in  news recently. Everybody is aware of the grave outcomes of taking wrong prescriptions. Mistakes will happen, whatever the reasons may be. As clients, let us all be proactive, and follow some simple steps. Double check with your  doctor what he is prescribing, and the dosage that he has written is correct. Make a copy of it, or write it down, and date it. When collecting the prescription take a moment to check it with your copy.

Pharmacists, like doctors are under pressure to produce, for profit.
