I haven’t seen these much-discussed Target medicine bottles, but in general the pharmacy always places the patient’s name on every bottle. It may even be a law.

Labels from some pharmacies could be better organized. But there is plenty of useful information on labels in general: drug name, including the brand name for reference even if the pill in the bottle is generic; dosage; number of pills; when to take them; whether the Rx can be refilled (and when); name of doctor (and some include his phone number). And then there are cautionary stickers about not operating machinery or telling us not to drink when taking the medication, that sort of stuff.
