Magnifying glass needed to read name of medicine on medicine-strip
ActIT Jammu, Projects, Java,, C# Training Jammu
Dear Editor,

Recently I purchased in emergency four tablets cut from a strip of ten of the medicine Zolfresh-5. But I was shocked that the name of medicine printed on side of the cut-strip was printed in so tiny letters that I had to use magnifying-glass to confirm name of the medicine. It may be that the total strip of ten might have Zolfresh-5 printed once on the strip in readable size. But problem arises in case of remaining tablets to be used later in need when the cut-strip is left either without name of the medicine or name printed in unreadable size.

It should be made compulsory to print name of the medicine on complete strip over every tablet-capsule. Moreover, it should also be compulsory to print-emboss name of the medicine individually on each tablet-capsule. Alternatively, system can be formulated wherein name of medicine is printed all over on background of the packing-foil, with all other details printed in a darker tone over the packing-foil with name of medicine all over the strip in background like once used to be for Crocin.

Many drug-manufacturers pack even commonly used cough-lozenges in strips of eight instead of normal ten because consumers judge price per strip rather than a lozenge.
