Drug and pharmaceutical labeling must be approached with the highest standards to ensure patients have all the information they need on any medication they are taking. It ensures they know the correct dose and procedures to administer the drugs safely as well. Proper drug labeling is also vital when it comes to pharmaceuticals, because it ensures that doctors and medical professionals know the details of how to prescribe and administer the drugs to patients.
It is imperative that pharmaceutical manufacturers protect patients from harm at all costs. Royal Label is an industry leader in printing custom labels for pharmaceuticals due to our attention to detail and more.
The reason that specific product labeling information is essential with pharmaceuticals is because there is life-saving information that must be effectively communicated to both doctors and patients. The brand and the type of drug contained in the packaging is one of the first and most crucial elements of the label. In addition to this information, it is imperative to include the quantity of the product, its strength, and what patients it may or may not be suitable for. Lastly, labels for pharmaceutical products must list side effects, indications, contraindications, and instructions for the user. Some basic guidelines that a manufacturer must follow include listing the following details on the product label:
- Drug interactions
- Adverse reactions
- Dosage details
- Approved indications
- Severe warnings
- Less severe warnings
- First FDA approval year
- Generic name
This information is most often listed on the first page of the packaging label. Other information can be included in the following pages, but these details are important as they are the first that the doctor and the patient see when they examine the product.
Package design is an element of labeling for medicine that must never be overlooked. It is necessary to leave room on the packaging for the pharmacist to apply their own label without covering the pharmaceutical company’s label. If this occurs, it can be detrimental to a patient’s health since they cannot read the essential information. This labeling is the only means of communication between the manufacturer and the patient after they pick the drug up from the pharmacy.
As a top pharmaceutical label printing company, the professionals at Royal Label take all of these factors into consideration for every client we work with. When we print pharmaceutical labels, we are careful to include all pertinent Information for Use (IFU) materials. These labeling details are of utmost importance because they help to ensure that physicians make no mistake in prescribing medicine and patients are informed of the proper usage procedures.
We Know the Importance of Regulations
Pharmaceutical packaging is a highly regulated manufacturing process that is dependent upon the country or region of origin of the product. Since patient safety is the top priority, the information that is communicated on the labeling must be concise and easily understood.
At Royal Label, we strictly adhere to the guidelines determined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to prevent injury or death to patients when they take the pharmaceuticals you produce.
