Why do I Hate this Rx?
I'll tell you why. It's because this prescriber changed his mind about the number of refills, but instead of taking the time (what, maybe 30 seconds?) and spending a whole 25¢ for a new prescription blank this guy scribbled out the mistake and changed it.
PRESCRIBERS... a controlled substance prescription is a LEGAL DOCUMENT. Don't do this. Like it or not, when you do this in front of a patient you give them the idea to try it later on another prescription using your handwriting. I know you're busy saving mankind one Z-pack at a time, but please, PLEASE, for the love of all that's holy spend the damn quarter and take an extra 30 seconds to write a new prescription.
