Understanding your medication

Ever wondered what’s inside that paper handout you receive when picking up your prescription at the pharmacy? It’s called the “Prescribing Information” or “Package Insert.” This document is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is provided by the drug manufacturer for clinicians and pharmacists who dispense the medication. Based on the results of clinical trial data, the Prescribing Information details the safe and effective use of the medicine, as well as the benefits and risks associated with treatment.

All drugs on the market are required by the FDA to provide the Prescribing Information along with each and every prescription medication. The Prescribing Information for most drugs follow the same basic format. As an example, we’ve outlined the Prescribing Information for PRISTIQ®(desvenlafaxine) in the sections below.
