Watch for Mix-Ups With Meds That Come as Both Solids and Liquids

Some older meds will appear on pharmacy shelves in new liquid forms.

For instance, levothyroxine now comes as an oral solution (Tirosint-Sol)...and there'll be a colchicine solution (Gloperba) soon.

These new liquids may be an option for patients who have difficulty swallowing tabs or caps...have a feeding tube...or need dosages that don't come in pill form.
