- Failure to "Shake Well".
- Failure to take the medicine with food when required.
- Failure to supply adequate fluid with medicine when required.
- Failure to be cautious of the "Warnings" associated with the medicine.
- Dose omission or multiple dosing.
- Overdose or under dose.
- Wrong product administered.
- Administered at the wrong time.
- Using expired product.
