Medicine, food and supply labels are mainly used for printing instructions for dispensed items. You can print these labels from a consultation page when adding or editing an item (including planned medicines), from a consultation invoice page when the item's usage type is 'dispensed', or from a counter sale page when a patient has been selected for the item.
