His Leading Lady - S2-E13

Factual error: Andie is supposedly taking a drug called "Xanax", which Pacey keeps describing as a 'heavy duty drug for anxiety and depression'. Actually, Xanax is a class of medication called Benzodiazepines or tranquilizers, and is primarily to treat anxiety. It is not an antidepressent. In this scene, Andie takes the medicine out of the cabinet-and takes two rather large, blackish capsules. Xanax looks nothing like this, and normally is a very small white pill. Shortly after that Pacey goes into the bathroom, and takes the medicine bottle out of the trash. On the closeup of the label the drug name is printed "Zanac 20 MG, Take two pills once daily". Not only is the name of the drug misspelled, but the dosage is completely inappropriate. The real drug Xanax is normally taken at doses around .25 or .5 up to 2 MG. There is no way a doctor would prescribe a dose of 40 MG a day of Xanax.
