To ensure you receive the medication you and your healthcare provider discussed, make sure your prescription is marked “DAW-1” (Dispense as Written — or the appropriate language required by your state). This instructs the pharmacy to fill the exact drug on the prescription.
You can ask your pharmacist to note in your chart not to substitute your prescription without you and your healthcare provider’s consent. This helps ensure that you receive the drug you were prescribed, instead of receiving another substitute. If you have difficulties filling your prescription at your local pharmacy, please contact your prescribing healthcare provider’s office or OWP Pharmaceuticals for assistance at: 1-800-273-6729.
