GI Elixir Number 1

At my Goofmart Pharmacy location we compound a special formulation for a lady named Hope. The doc calls it "GI Elixir Number 1." 

In order to compound GI Elixir Number 1, we need the following ingredients:

Lidocaine Viscous Solution

For some reason, the doctor decided to send a recent e-Script for each part separately, including the various ingredients of Donnatal. One of those ingredients is Atropine Sulfate. I don't know if the doctor was just drinking or hallucinating, but somehow he expected Hope to hope that she could measure out 0.0065ml of Atropine for each dose... in the way he wrote it.

What a nightmare. Doc, get a grip, ok?

This is exactly the kind of stuff that drives us pharmacists to the brink of insanity.

Is this the same Hope that hopes you'll forget when she last got her narcotics?
