Is Your Pharmacy Getting the Most from Your Prescription Bottle Label?

A prescription bottle label provides a bridge of essential information between a pharmacy and customers. To extend the metaphor, maintaining the bridge to the fullest degree requires pharmacies to periodically review their labeling solutions to ensure that the options are sufficient for all types of dispensed medication and all patient populations served.

Labeling needs differ between pharmacies, but there are certain product needs that every prescription bottle label supplier does well by addressing. Below are four examples of these needs. If your label provider doesn’t address them in a way that perfectly meets your requirements, your business may not be getting “the most” from its prescription bottle labels, and should consider looking for a new supplier of prescription labeling solutions.

  1. Labels That Support On-Demand Printing

Whether your pharmacy performs on-demand label printing in-house or relies on its label supplier to do the task, blank medication labels are a perfect option for the process. Many suppliers of prescription labels carry blank labels for this very reason. If your supplier isn’t among them, and you require on-demand labels, you definitely aren’t getting the most from your prescription bottle label.

  1. Auxiliary Labels That Provide Critical Information

Auxiliary labels go beyond information provided on the primary prescription label to supply critical information for using a prescription — and “critical” isn’t an overstatement. Examples of essential information about prescriptions that auxiliary labels convey include: “May Cause Drowsiness” and “Do Not Drink Alcoholic Beverages”. Auxiliary labels can play a crucial role in positive health outcomes.

  1. Labels That Feature Customized Design

From labels that feature your pharmacy’s logo and colors to labels that feature unique blocks of information, the options for custom labels are many. If your label supplier can’t deliver custom options that would help you better serve customers and/or promote your business image, you aren’t merely not getting the most from your prescription bottle labels. You also aren’t getting the most from your prescription bottle label supplier.
