Random Tuesday Thoughts

I love random tuesdays cuz I don't have to think. I just wish I had more intelligent thoughts running thru my head. Pink says she's afraid of silence cuz it screams the truth. At first I agreed but I kinda like the silence so maybe not. I'm so glad I went to my reunion last weekend, but I gotta tell ya it dug up some buried memories. You know the kind. They are all dusty and covered with muck, but they're there, seeping out of my subconscious and punching me in the gut. Causing that lump in my throat, and those prickles of tears. Prickles, not pickles. I hate pickles, you should already know that. Speaking of pickles and prickles, is it time for lunch yet? No? How about another latte then? It really sucks that the Sbux down the street closed, thank goodness the one near me didn't close or it would be bad news. Ack! I only have one Pharmacy Friday question! Thoughts anyone?? Ok, if I were the Pharmacist In Charge (PIC) and had my own store and went on a maternity leave, then 2 people quit, then 1 went on vacation, and my store were left with a temp pharmacist, a new tech, and a fill-in tech, chances are I would only take a 10 week maternity leave instead of 12 weeks so that way my pharmacy would not go to hell while I was gone. I'd also keep that 2 weeks over my bosses head so that I'd get an extra 2 weeks of vacay when I wanted it since my maternity leave was cut short. Really. Because no matter how good your relief pharmacist is (that'd be me) when you have a pharmacy full of people who don't really know exactly how things are done, people tend to get pissy. Especially when your temp pharmacist has another temp job for a couple weeks in the middle and there is a temp-temp pharmacist in. Although I usually just bat my eyes and tell them in 2 weeks it'll all be back to normal so please bear with us. Or is it bare with us? After seeing some of the people that come in here I'm gonna go with bear with us. If your doctor writes for cream and all I have is ointment, I have to call to have it switched. It's dumb, but it's the law. Sorry. Ohhhh, not good. Just found a narcotic bottle full of blood pressure meds. Someone is in big stinking trouble. Is it lunch yet? Better yet is it quittin time cuz I'd really like a glass of wine please. Ok enough thoughts for today lets go count some drugs baby!

Don't forget your pharmacy friday questions!

I have a Pharm Fri question: this one arose at a yoga teacher training I had last fall. We were talking about trauma victims and severely anxious people. My prof said a clenched jaw is a sign of high anxiety. If that's the case, and drugs like Lexapro treat generalized anxiety disorders, then why is jaw clenching a side effect of said meds? Thanks! Love, kitty.

Your favorite brother-in-law has a Pharm Friday question. Why is it that Mr. Gower had a full bottle of poison in his pharmacy? And I'm wondering, if it was poison, why would he not get sick tasting it? and how would he know what it tastes like?
PS. Sorry you are having a bad day. I'm suffering through all sorts of water slides/rides, wave pools, lazy rivers and hot tubs. Wish you were here!

Pharmacy question: If you enjoy applying preparation H, does that make you a strange person??? LMFAO!!!!!!

otin said...

I don't have a lot of great memories from high school, maybe that is why I am not into reunions!

I want some Adderall. No one will write a script for me. What is the OTC equivalent, if any?

I have a question:

If you are stable and happy on effexor, do you have to take it for the rest of your life? I take it for panic disorder and am quite happy with it (150mg per day) but I am wondering if I ever wean off it, will I go back to the panic stuff again?

Great! I should try this kind of stream of consciousness writing, the result is very interesting.

School reunions are a big no-no for me. For now, anyway.

Pharmacy Friday Question:

Who is more difficult to deal with, the patients, the doctor's offices, or the insurance companies?

What is a good alternative to ibuprofen or naproxen if you've taken each for so long that you're starting to get stomach aches from them? (Shoulder problem FINALLY getting better)

Anyone ever give you fake prescriptions that they wrote up themselves? LOL I bet you have had at least one.
