    So as not to ruin it for anyone else, I'll put my guesses in white and you can highlight them if you want to see them.

    Benadryl Liq 5mg/5ml; sig: 0.5ml po q 6 hours prn & (??? - looks like before rash, but that doesn't make sense); disp: 4oz, 4 refills

    Tylenol 80mg/0.8ml; sig: 80mg/0.8ml po q 4 hours prn pain; disp: 4oz, 4 refills


    Sadly, I have seen a few like the last one. It reminds me of the RX I got on Monday that said: Stomach Cocktail (Lidocaine, Reglan, Mylanta) po prn; 1 bottle. The nurse seemed absolutely stumped by why we would call and ask about it.

    I agree with the 2nd one. Here's my version of the 1st one:
    Benadryl 12.5mg/5ml; sig: 0.5ml po q 6 hours prn & before work; disp: 4oz, 4 refills

    This site PharmacyTales.com has a section devoted to the "Can you read this prescription" topic. Direct link to the topic is here. It's a new site, so there isn't a whole lot of content yet.

    Benadryl 12.5mg/mL 0.5mL Q6H PRN (not sure what- r/o rash?)

    Tylenol 80mg/0.5mL sig 80mg/0.5mL Q4H PRN temp
