Watch for these red flags when dispensing opioid prescriptions
from By Jason Poquette
When I graduated from pharmacy school almost 25 years ago, filling prescriptions for opioids in a community setting wasn't a topic of great concern. We did it. We made sure the dosing was appropriate and counseled the patients about side effects. We knew about forged prescriptions and probably caught some. But today's pharmacists must take many more things into consideration whenever we fill a prescription for a controlled substance.
