    Hi I'm bored let's start a brawl!

    You get an Rx for:

    Bendroflumethiazide 2.5mg 30 tabs 1 od
    Furosemide 20mg 28 tabs 1 od
    Atenolol 25mg 30 tabs 1 od


    What do you give?

    28 of everything because it makes more sense and let's face it a Dr rarely thinks about Rxs when he/she writes it.

    30 Bendro, 28 Furosemide and 28 Atenolol because Atenolol is a calendar pack. Why? What makes Atenolol different to Bendrio?

    30 Bendro, 28 Furosemide and 30 Atenolol because that is what the Rx said when it was written by God himself and brought down by Moses from Mount Ararat.


    I won't even start on what you'd put if you got an Rx for:

    Simvastatin 20mg 1 om!
    Linnear MRPharmS

    Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder: The biggest cause of brain damage and 100% preventable.

    In pregnancy: 1 fag is not safe, 1 x-ray is not safe and 1 drink is not safe.

    Duh!

    Off course this would call for a MUR consultation, in order to work out with the patient the optimum number of tablets of each of the 3 items. However, as we can't alter what God writes, we would then need to send a nicely worded suggestion to God.
    This would be applauded by head office, as it is another ??£ (cant remember the figure)
    It would be ranted at by the other customers who have to wait 15 minutes for their scripts because you are in a consultation with Mrs Jones.
    And the paper recommendation would be buried at the GP surgery, under reams of more important reading material.
    Why did you ask such an obvious question???

      The fun starts when you've also got 28 mirtazapine orodispersible tabs and 28 sandocal-400 tabs on the script...
      Personally, I've taken more and more to amending the script myself and sending it back to the surgery with a polite Post-it saying "Please initial our amendment", in particular whenI get scripts for dressings in quantities of less than one box, when I can't claim Broken Bulk and I know I'll never shift the rest of the box; I recently had my first script in Yonks for Release drsgs 10x10cm: 3 dresssings! And they would want me to order in a box of 100, just to supply 3?!? Same goes for insulins: holidaymakers run out, go to the local surgery here who duly prescribe a single pen of novorapid, or a single mixtard innolet: what the Dickens am I supposed to do with the other 4 in the box?
      Or the remaining 190 softclix lancets, becouse some woman from Stoke-on-Trent only got 10 prescribed? AAARRGGG!!!!!

        No you've missed the point!

        You're meant to say that of course we'd give the exact quantities that's written on the script and then i get to jump up and down and throw things at you for being spineless!

        Humph! Can't even start a good argument anymore! I'm going for a sulk!

                    And you had a go at me for saying "Sorry to bother you Dr"?

                        Sorry meant no disrespect. Was just being facetious in that some pharmacists seem to think that Rxs are delivered direct from the lord almighty and must not be questioned.

                          I'm not like that! And I never ever say "sorry to bother you" god, God , Dr or whatever!

                          I think it's just the sheer volume some of the places I work in have to do, that makes it just simple if you just give what the script says. I only ring up the surgery if there's a real problem. If I tried to get a quantity changed on the computer, it would just take up so much time it's easier just to give the silly amounts out.
