When buying medicine, many of us only look at the expiration date mentioned on the medicine card. We fail to notice the other symbols on the medicine card. They are very important. Keeping these codes gives important information about whether or not to buy that drug or whether the drug is addictive. Today, medicine can learn what important codes say.

XRx Mark: XRx is a drug commonly used in the treatment of mental disorders. It contains a small number of narcotics. These drugs cannot be sold without a doctor’s prescription. Also, when selling the drug, the pharmacist must keep a copy of the prescription for the drug for 2 years.

NRx Mark: These drugs are used in the treatment of depression, anxiety, or bad addiction. These drugs cannot be bought or sold without a doctor’s advice.

Rx Mark: Although these medications should be taken only after consulting a doctor, they are common medications.

Redline: If there is a red band on the medicine card, it means that the medicine should be taken only on the advice of the doctor. This mark is usually seen on antibiotics. However, it should be taken according to the doctor’s advice.

It is important to note that in general, it is not advisable to take any medication without consulting a doctor.
