Foil Hat Lady was in last week asking me about her stuffy nose. I suggested several options for her to try. The next day she was back because one ear was still plugged up. Since we had already spent 15 minutes the previous day and she said she didn't take any of my advice I recommended she see her physician.
Later in the day I received the following e-Script:
We filled the script. Foil Hat Lady came to get the prescription. Then we spent the next 10 minutes with me trying to convince her NOT to use the spray in her ear.
"But it's my EAR that's plugged up," she wailed.
After some tedious explanation she finally agreed to use it in her nose. BUT then we spent the next 10 minutes discussing what "whiff" means. Even after pulling out the package insert and showing her how to use the medication she still didn't believe me. She was entirely convinced that "whiff" means that she should spray it into the air and then try to smell the aerosolized particles.
She left with her medication, but I have a feeling she's going to spray it into her ear when she gets home. Heck, maybe it will even work?
