"A Pharmacy Technician must not dispense a drug contrary to the terms of the prescription" this is a list of what pharmacy technician may not do.
I do not understant the pharse " contrary to the terms of the prescription"
Could anyone have easy words to substitute in place of " contrary to the terms of the prescription"?
"Contrary to" usually means the same as "not in agreement with". If the doctor prescribed a certain medication, with the direction to take two 10mg pills a day for 10 days, then the pharmacy technician must put 20 pills of that specific medicine in the bottle. If drug A & drug B treat the same symptoms, he can't decide to switch one for the other unless the prescription specifical states that he may. He also can't change it to ten 20mg pills. Any deviation from what is written on the prescription is contrary to the instructions.
Hope that helps!

It's a bit of a double negative; they could have said, "A Pharmacy Technician must follow the terms of the prescription". Since it's a list of what they may NOT do, they could have said, "A Pharmacy Technician must not deviate from the terms of the prescription."
