June: Hello there. Do you have something for stomach pain?
Hector: Hmmm...When did your pain start?
June: Oh, It’s not me. It’s my granny. It just started after she had lunch.
Hector: Is it in the lower abdomen? Any idea?
June: No. Sorry, I don’t know exactly.
Hector: You should’ve asked her. Is the pain severe?
June: Can you just give me some medicine for now? The pain is not so severe.
Hector: That’s fine. Let me pack some. But if the pain does not stop, call the doctor.
June: Hello, Hector. Do you have something for headache?
Hector: Hi June, is it your granny again?
June: No. It’s me this time.
Hector: Oh! Since when?
June: It started last night.
Hector: Hmm... I can only give you an over-the-counter pain killer.
June: Yes, please, that’s all I need.
Hector: Sure! Do see a doctor if the pain persists.
Sandra: Excuse me? Do you have these?
Paul: Ummm...Yeah! I have the first three of them.
Sandra: Please give me a complete dosage for a month.
Paul: Here it is. The price would be...
Sandra: Wait! I think this one is expired.
Paul: It can’t be! Let me check.
Sandra : Sure. I think it expired last month.
Paul: No, it didn’t, the year printed is 2015.
Sandra: Oh! I thought it was 2013.
Sandra: This medicine is too expensive. I don’t think I can afford it.
Paul: This is what your doctor prescribed, but I can give you a generic one if you want. It’s the same formulation, but different brand.
Sandra: Yes, I think that’s a good idea. Should I check with my doctor?
Paul: It’s the same formula and it’s FDA approved medicine, but you can check, sure.
Sandra: Alright! Give me 2 days worth of the dose. I will check with him and then buy the rest.
Paul: That’s a good idea.
