List of Confused Drug Names

ISMP's List of Confused Drug Names contains look-alike and sound-alike (LASA) name pairs, of medications that have been published in the ISMP Medication Safety Alert!® and the ISMP Medication Safety Alert!® Community/Ambulatory Care Edition through February 28, 2019.  

Use this list to determine which medications require special safeguards to reduce the risk of errors and minimize harm. This may include strategies such as:

  • Using both the brand and generic names on prescriptions and labels
  • Including the purpose of the medication on prescriptions
  • Configuring computer selection screens to prevent look-alike names from appearing consecutively
  • Changing the appearance of look-alike product names to draw attention to their dissimilarities

Both the FDA-approved and the ISMP-recommended tall man (mixed case) letters have been included in this list.

Rows that are highlighted in blue are new additions to the list since February 2015.
