Prevent Mishaps With Meds That Patients Need to Mix Before Use

Meds that PATIENTS must dilute or reconstitute (cholestyramine, PEG bowel preps, liquid potassium chloride, etc) will cause a stir.

These types of meds are prone to mishaps...since they rely on the patient to mix the medication in water or another liquid.

In a recent case, a caregiver didn't add water to a child's sertraline oral solution (Zoloft) before administration...and the child experienced numbness of the mouth and tongue from the undiluted med.
