I'm lead to believe by allot of questions that people don't know what they can find out on the label and all those little stickies. You will find the brand name, generic name, directions on taking it, manufacturer, dr, expiration date, pharmacy info and the initials of the pharmacist who filled it. The stickies will have warnings about the med, or how to take it, or what to avoid. There is allot of info there if we just read it. Those papers that come with every med in this country also have important info, so read them, every time you get a refill.
