Seemingly basic details, such as a product's name or the amount of drug in a tablet, can pose potential patient safety risks if that information is confusing or inaccurate, as two current examples attest. What's in a name? Plenty, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. On Feb. 17, the agency noted that Novartis Consumer Health Inc.
