``(a) In General.--Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act (or an amendment made by this Act) a registered importer shall not commingle a prescription drug imported into the United States under this Act (or amendment) with another prescription drug, regardless of whether such other drug is a domestic prescription drug or a prescription drug from a permitted country.
``(b) Label.--A registered importer (including an Internet pharmacy) that dispenses a prescription drug imported from a permitted country shall affix on each dispensed container of the prescription drug the label required under subsection (c), unless such a label is already affixed to the container.
