Certain stock bottles can't be open and have to remain sealed. Those tiny bottles are extremely hard to apply the RX Label too so the tech did what they had to do. Source: Am Pharmacy Tech.

I’m picturing them unloading this at the docks and it coming in a giant, truck-sized “mother bottle”.

Source: am also pharmacy tech, nebivolol isn’t one of those drugs that has a label warning to remain in the stock bottle. That was just laziness

The thing is, they’ve stuck the label directly on the small bottle before. This is the first time they’ve given me Russian nesting bottles

See, when you explain it like that it becomes logical.... but then, when i look at it again... it's totally ridiculous!

One of my prescriptions comes in a box with a bottle a little bigger than this inside of it. They just put the label on the box and throw the boxes in the bag. I’m glad they finally switched to PDFs for the medication guides though since that was just a huge waste of paper every month.

I think they have to be able to fit the label on the bottle. I have seen this more than once. "Prefilled bottles but too small to fit the label" was always what the pharmacist told me when I questioned them.

Yeah I'm a vet and we do this as well. Sometimes it's just that the label is too big for the bottle, because we have to have the prescriber info, patient info, drug info, and directions all on the label so we can't make it smaller.. I also do this for things like ear medications and eye ointments that could potentially smear onto the label (especially if the owner has a bit of a struggle to get them into the patient) and would make it unreadable if the label were just on the medication itself.

What do they print on the label, that is not already printed on the bottle it self / the instructions that come with it?

Good news, everyone! It's a suppository.

Is there another bottle inside the white bottle?

I was gonna say it if someone else didn't.
