Back Reading your prescription bottle

Staying on track with medication means staying informed. Here's how to read your prescription bottle and make sure what's inside matches the treatment you and your doctor have agreed to.

Please note: this is an example label only. Not all prescription labels look the same as each province/territory has its own prescription labelling requirements.

Be sure to read the printout your pharmacist gives you about your medication. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask your pharmacist.
