The next step in making sure you’re purchasing a medication is to check out its ingredients, according to a new study by the American Pharmacists Association (APA).
Pharmacists across the country are increasingly using digital labeling to keep track of the ingredients that are included in the medication and the ingredients in the containers they sell, and it can save time and money when it comes to buying.
But, in some cases, the labels could be misleading, and a pharmacy may be selling you a product that’s not what it says on the label.

Pharmacy-level labeling isn’t the only thing to keep in mind when buying medications, and if you have a question about a medication’s ingredients, APA is offering a free tool to help you.
The tool, called The Pharmacy Label Finder, is available in the APA’s online pharmacy directory, the Pharmacy Guide.
The tool will give you a list of medications that are listed as “in-house-made,” meaning they were developed and developed by an FDA-approved laboratory, according the APAPA.
The APA states that the tool is not meant to replace a pharmacist’s knowledge or expertise, and only allows you to compare products and products that have been tested in a lab.

The APA recommends that pharmacists use a standard format when determining the appropriate label for their products.
It also says that all medications should be listed in a “prescription” format, which means that the drugs can be used only for a prescribed purpose.
The prescription format should be clear and concise, with a generic name, drug number, brand name, and other useful information, according APAPAs guidance.
In some cases you may need to refer to the medication label on your prescription to make certain you understand what you’re buying.
This may be particularly true if you’re using a medication for a serious medical condition.
In some cases that could be a life-threatening condition.
The Pharmacy Finder tool is free to use, but the APAA suggests that pharmacist users take the time to understand the label and to research each prescription to find out if the medication is in fact the right one for you.
If you’re a pharmacist, check with your doctor or pharmacist about the accuracy of the information provided on the medication labels.
If you have any questions about medications or their labels, call your local pharmacy to make an appointment with a pharmaceutist.
