To the Editor: In their article about the codispensing of cisapride with contraindicated drugs, Dr Jones and colleagues1 conclude that "[p]rescriptions dispensed by the same pharmacies accounted for a far higher proportion of contraindicated medication pairs than prescriptions from the same physicians." This conclusion seems to point a very large finger at physicians and at pharmacists, implying that neither are doing their job reviewing and intervening in drug-drug interactions.
