Wall Street Journal on Drugs


Strange article in the Wall Street Journal on Friday in the Informed Patient column.  The column discusses medication errors and although the major graphic is a box of  ‘some common drug name mix-ups’ (such as ZYRTEC and ZYPREXA and CELEBREX and CELEXA), there is no way to determine if this is in fact a major problem, as the article itself deals with an apparently more prevalent type of error – dosage mistakes.
