avoiding dispensing mishaps with new drugs and dosage forms marketed in 2011

Techs are on the front lines for avoiding dispensing mishaps with new drugs and dosage forms marketed in 2011.

Edarbi (azilsartan) is a new "ARB" blood pressure med...similar to Diovan and Benicar. Dispense Edarbi in its original container...and tell patients to store it in the same bottle. Edarbi is sensitive to moisture and light.

Viibryd (vilazodone) is a new antidepressant that's related to SSRIs...like Prozac and Zoloft. Place a "take with food" auxiliary label on Viibryd Rxs...food helps the med absorb properly.
