A label should provide scientifically accurate and clear instruction to health care practitioners for prescription drugs and to consumers for over-the-counter drugs and supplements. Security of pharmaceutical products is particularly important as it ensures that medications are not tampered with before they reach customers. However, we find that there are many lacunae between the way of labeling and regulatory aspects related to that. Many pharmaceutical manufacturers take the opportunity skillfully to avoid essential information on labels. Labeling of combined/ twin packs is one such critical area to demonstrate. Here some interesting findings related to twin-packs are highlighted with their possible consequences.
