I (drug caution code)
Abbreviation on a medication that indicates "interaction" because the medication may interact adversely with another medication you may have taken or take in the future. While not a part of the historical heritage of ancient prescription abbreviations, drug caution codes provide very valuable warnings. If you see a caution code on a prescription, talk to your pharmacist about it before using the medicine.
