If you are at the prescription counter, make sure that you are asking your state licensed pharmacist, not a clerk,  these questions. Also understand, however knowledgeable and educated a pharmacist is, his advice is no substitute for a doctors advice. When in doubt, don't hesitate to call your doctor back to ask any questions, about the prescription, you might have.
