Cautionary and Advisory Label

Cautionary And Advisory Label

Cautionary and advisory labels (Cals) are sometimes added (with the dispensing label) to a medicine dispensed by the pharmacist to the patient.

A dispensing label is always added to a medicine to show the essential details (the name of the medicine, the dose, and the frequency of administration), and in some cases the pharmacist will add cautionary and advisory labels.

Standard cautionary and advisory labels offer advice but are not exhaustive. The labels are not a substitute for adequate counselling by prescribers and dispensers (most medicines are dispensed by pharmacists) but are intended to reinforce essential information the patient needs to know.
