Pharmacy to Decide?

Uh, doc? Strength?

Is the pharmacist to decide?

And for those of you playing the home game... what this REALLY means is that a technician or pharmacist gets the honor of calling the physician's office, listening to all the options before making a selection because the menu has recently changed (back in 2008) and then waiting on hold for who knows how long, only to be routed to the physician's assistant where we will likely get routed to voicemail or put on hold forEVER.

Thirty seconds to write, 15-20 minutes of precious filling time wasted.

It also leaves a nice opportunity for the patient to write in whatever strength he'd like.
