    ANYWHERE in the US, all of that is MANDATORY.

    What?  Yes.  The label MUST BY LAW show the drug, the dosage, the person for whom it's prescribed, the dosage, the Physician who authorized the prescription, whether or not it can be renewed, the date.

    If by location you mean the USA, yes, all 50 states require a prescription label to contain the name of the drug, strength, instructions for use, prescriber's name and patient's name.

    Yes.   If yours doesn’t, it’s time to find a different pharmacy.
