G (drug caution code)
Abbreviation on a medication that stands for "glaucoma" and indicates the medication can cause problems for a person with this eye disorder. Further, a person with glaucoma might see the generic "C" code on a prescription bottle or vial if the medication might raise the pressure within the eye. These types of special caution codes are intended to be warnings for patients with specific medical conditions. If you see one or even a possible caution code on a prescription, talk to your pharmacist about it before using the medicine. While not a part of the historical heritage of ancient prescription abbreviations, drug caution codes provide very valuable warnings.
