Batch number of medicine
What is the batch number of medicine? What is the meaning of medicine with the same batch number and the medicine with different batch number?
A medication’s batch number helps to track or identify the production specifications of a medication with respect to its strength, dosage form, expiration date, and all that must be known about a particular medication during its production.
Batch numbers help trace shipments of medications in case of a recall. Batch numbers may differ for the same drug, possibly if they were produced at a different location, or on a different date.
If you have questions or concerns about a specific medication with two different batch numbers, it is advisable to check with your community pharmacist.
