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