The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) is alerting hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and anesthesia professionals about the potential for dangerous mix-ups between two relatively new presentations of older medications, BLOXIVERZ (neostigmine injection) and VAZCULEP (phenylephrine injection).

In the past 3 months, ISMP has received 8 practitioner reports expressing concern about look-alike packaging of these two drugs.
