Prevent Mix-Ups With Meds That Require Reconstitution

You play a key role in preventing reconstitution errors with oral powders for suspension (amoxicillin, oseltamivir, etc).

In a recent case, sildenafil suspension (Revatio) was dispensed after adding only 60 mL of water...because an auxiliary label covered the instructions to add another 30 mL after mixing the first portion.

And there have been many reports over the years of patients getting antibiotic suspensions or other meds (Quillivant XR, etc) from the pharmacy with too much water...not enough...or even NONE added.
