What Does Ds 15 Mean On A Prescription Bottle?

Bill Says:

On my priscription bottle it list the amount of pills in the bottle as 30. Under that it says DS 15. Does that mean days supply or something else?

Hi Bill,

This may or may not be the case with your Rx, but I often see the abbreviation "DS" being referred to as "Double Strength" for some antibiotics such as Bactrim DS / Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim DS / SMZ-TMP DS.

However, I would still encourage you to contact your doctor or local pharmacy just to know for certain.

What type of prescription is it?

Xanax says Qty 90 underneath DS 30. I'm confused. TBH I'm going to have to start counting my meds before I leave my pharmacy BC there's no way there were 90 in the bottle. I'm confused. I've been taking this med since 15 and I'm now 43. Something is definitely not adding up.
