Pre­scrip­tion blun­der

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - THE BRIT SCENE BY TOM DRAPER -

The most cu­ri­ous story of the week was that of the un­named fe­male pa­tient who took erec­tile dys­func­tion cream for a dry eye prob­lem. Ap­par­ently, pre­scrip­tion mix-ups are com­mon­place but no­body, nei­ther the GP, the dis­pens­ing chemist or even the pa­tient her­self sought to ques­tion why a woman was be­ing given a cream for a male-only prob­lem. Even if the pack­ag­ing of the two med­i­ca­tions is sim­i­lar surely read­ing the in­struc­tions would give a big hint that this was not the po­tion for her. It should’ve raised a few eye­brows at least.
