Patient-Centered Prescription Drug Container Label
New Prescription Drug Container Label Survey
Consumers: Tell us what you think of the new labels on prescription medication containers you received from pharmacies? Please take our brief survey.
In 2011, new rules took effect that require all patients in California to receive medication containers that are labeled according to specific requirements. These requirements include emphasis on directions for use and other important information in the same order on the pill container label. Also, the directions must now be printed in at least 10-point type and consumers can ask for 12-point type. The changes are designed to make it easier for you to find and read the information you need in order to take your medications safely.
This survey is anonymous and will help the Board determine how well the new labels are working.
