FMI also supported the addition of "or Pharmacist" to the label phrase "Ask Your Doctor." And it called for flexibility in type size to accommodate smaller containers or packages suggesting type smaller than FDA's proposed 6 point but not less than 4.5 points. Finally FMI suggested a three-year compliance deadline versus the two proposed by FDA.
