Prescription Abbreviations

Logo for Prescription Abbreviations
Prescription Abbreviations Also known as "Sig Codes", prescription abbreviations are basically coded instructions from a health-care professional. The code is used to supply the words while roman numerals are sometimes used for the numbers. These should be memorized to prepare for the PTCB or ExCPT exams.
