I visited the pharmacy the other day. I was looking for my anti-histamine tablets because lately my hives seemed to have come up again. Not too sure what I ate that triggered it but it could be a combination of stress as well. Sigh.. when I asked the pharmacist if she could prescribe me my usual Clarityne and got a box.. Can you believe that someone in front of the queue actually asked to be prescribed diet pills that really work! Not too sure if such request is common but it sure is weird, don’t you think so? Well, there are many diet pill available over the counter but I have not really heard if a pharmacist can prescribe one for us..
Oh by the way, sometimes when the pharmacist is not in, we get to see another pharmacist from another outlet via pc web.. cool, eh? I bought my kids’ cough medication the other day this way… I am not sure if they used skype or those webcam and voice by yahoo or msn… Yesterday’s paper reported that the new hospital in Yishun has consultations via Skype! We are really going into the electronic age for real!
