look-alike, sound-alike med errors

You can add Kapidex and Casodex to the list of drugs involved in look-alike, sound-alike med errors.

This isn't surprising. Over 3000 pairs of drug names look or sound enough alike to cause confusion...and these errors are thought to make up about a third of pharmacy mix-ups.
