I never did understand the American thing of putting pills in the little orange pots. In England (and I presume for the rest of the UK) drugs, both prescription and over-the-counter, come in sealed blister packets (the kind where you 'pop' pills through foil). They're also usually labelled with the drug and dose on the packet and sometimes on the pills themselves (fond memories of 30/500 on codeine/paracetamol pills come back to me).
Do US pharmacies get pills in big boxes and count them out into orange pots? Do they come in blister packs and are popped out into orange pots? Are the orange pots just used in film and TV to show drugs are being prescribed (I know they featured heavily whenever House was having one of his junkie moments)?
It sounds bizarre but this, along with why Breaking Bad used hydrofluoric acid, is one of the things annoying me about US tv at the moment.
