A prescription that lack in tbe luait essential
is worao than worthless. It may be positively
dangerous a peril to the life of the patient. It
may defeat the dootor's efforts, and it may re
tard the recuperative forces of nature.
To have any value whatever, a prescription
muet be 03tnpouuded from drugs that are abso
lutely pure and of standard potency. It must
be exactly what the dootor intended it should be.
If it is this, it is certainly worth the retail value
of the drugs it contains. Our presoriptien ser
vice is right both in quality and cost.
