Another Example of Why I Can’t Win

Patient A: Will you write me something for my vertigo, Doc?

Me: You can get meclizine over the counter without a prescription.

Patient A: Yeah, but it costs $10 and my prescription co-pay is only $5.

Me: Ok.

Patient B: Hey Doc; that script you wrote me for meclizine will cost me a $30 co-pay. Isn’t there anything cheaper?

Me: You can get it over the counter for $10.

Patient B: So why did you write the prescription?

Me: (muttering) Because I can’t win.
