Q. R.- quantitum rectum-the quantity is correct. This may be used where the quantity of a medicine is unusual and it is desirable to call the attention of the dispenser to the fact that the prescriber is aware of the condition, but that particular circumstances justify the dose. The abbreviation is placed just after the item to which it calls attention.
It could also be a partial fill meaning quantity remaining 60 tabs. Which means the pharmacy still owes you sixty tabs.
Is it a computer generated prescription?
Probably a typing error... should read QTY : 60 ... meaning quantity to be dispensed.
