Prescription drug design
I take several prescription medications every day including morphine, percocet and amphetamine. I have taken these for a while and have had them filled at various pharmacies. One thing that I have noticed is that the same drug from different manufacturers come in different shapes, sizes and even colors. It seems to me that this isn't a real smart way of doing things. I can see someone getting confused, being used to a pill and getting a refill that doesn't look familiar. Not to mention it would seem to me that an industry standard would aid in identification for doctors, EMT's and police. Why isn't there a design standard in place in the pharmaceutical industry? So many other products are uniformed between manufacturers for comparability and safety standards I would think that doing the same for drugs would be a no brainer.
