Prescription medicines are medicines that are licensed, regulated by the government and a prescription is required before buying it. Other common medicines are called ‘over the counter drugs’ because they do not require a prescription. Prescription drugs are authorized by medical practitioners like doctors. Registered nurses or medical assistants do not have the rights to write a prescription.
Prescription drugs often come in a pack or a bottle with detailed instructions. It also has the dates of manufacturing and expiry date.
