Pyxis -Safety Concern with Restocking

We recently converted to Pyxis ES cabinets and use them as our primary drug distribution process. We have both cubies and open matrix drawers. When a new medication is restocked there is a safety concern not to place similar meds next to each other. When the techs are busy it is easy to simply restock the med in the next available open pocket that Pyxis displays. Can you share your ideas on how to reduce errors. Thanks. Tom
