CONFUSED DRUG NAMES

This list of confused drug names, which includes look-
alike and sound-alike name pairs, consists of those
name pairs that have been published in the Institute
for Safe Medication Practices' (ISMP) ISMP Medication
Safety Alert!
and the ISMP Medication Safety Alert!
Community/Ambulatory Care Edition. Events involving
these medications were reported to ISMP through the
ISMP National Medication Errors Reporting Program
(ISMP MERP). This list can be used to determine which
medications require special safeguards to reduce
the risk of errors. This may include strategies such as:
using both the brand and generic names; including
the purpose of the medication on prescriptions;
configuring computer selection screens to prevent look-
alike names from appearing consecutively; and
changing the appearance of look-alike product names.
