    Prozac

    I started my job at a local pharmacy about a month ago, and now I'm starting to learn all these drugs. I learnt that Prozac makes people happy, especially those people that are sad all day..

    I'm a normal guy, I'm not sad, I'm not hopeless, although sometimes I think about how hopeless I am, but I am a happy person in general. Suppose say I take a few of the Prozac, what would happen to me? Would I just become really really happy? And listen to Red Hot Chili Pepper's Higher Ground all day?

    And I heard there are drugs that relieves anxiety/nervousness? What are they? So suppose this drug XYZ can relieve nervousness, I can take it before I make my graduation speech so I won't feel so intense speaking in front of 200 students and 800 student relatives?

    Don't mess with those drugs unless you get a prescription.

    If you're nervous about public speaking, take a speech class... and practice, practice, practice.

    Prescription drugs don't quite work that way. You don't just pop a pill that fits a circumstance. Drugs work to fix imbalances and all that, so it's not that simple.

    Don't take any prescription drug unless prescribed. If you have to ask you shouldn't be doing it.

    I thought it calmed you down and made you relax.

    If I took an ADHD guy's meds it wouldn't make me calm, I would get more hyper.

    Drugs have different effects on people that don't need them. Giving stimulants to my friend actually calms him down, giving them to me makes me hyper. He has ADHD, I don't.

    Like I said, chemical imbalnces and all that stuff. It's not like a video game, where you pop an Adderall and get +5 energy.

    Actually, from my experience in real life Adderall does give at least +5 to energy.

    I never used it to study, only to stay up drinking longer. Don't judge me.

    I put too many points into constitution so drugs don't affect me much anyway...

    And my ADHD friend gets like -30 energy from them. And my friend who bummed some pills off of said ADHD friend gets 0 energy change.

    But your Overuse Ellipses spell works wonders.

    I had a headache at work yesterday, and it was kind of slow too, so I just went around telling everyone about how I have a bad headache. And the pharmacist was like, "here, take an Ibuprofen, it costs like 1 cent each." But what I heard from him was "here, take an Ibuprofen, shut the **** up, and watch your own stomach bleed."

    To be fair, people *****ing to everyone about their headache are about the most annoying thing ever.

    Ah, the wonders of knowing all the side effects. Now you get to forever question yourself, "Is anal leakage really that bad?"

    I agree.

    Plus ibuprofen isn't going to hurt you with one pill. Now if you take say 20 pills a day for a month, then I would say worry.


    I also find the ironing of wanting to take prescription drugs that aren't meant for you and at the same time being scared of an over the counter drug most delicious.

    You don't know the power of knowing all the side effects. I love it when this happens.

    Patient: "Hi Pharmacist, I have a problem, my back aches, are there any medicines I can take?"

    Pharmacist: "Oh minor problem, take ______. Oh but be careful of the side effects which includes drowziness, dizziness, depression, internal bleeding, birth defects, weight gain/loss, bone densiy loss."

    He never said he wanted to, he was just wondering about it. Sometimes I wonder about what it would be like if I were blind. And that's not really something I strive for.

    There was this one lady who got poison ivy on her, and she went to the pharmacy, and she was like "hi pharmacist, I got poison ivy on my arms, what kind of cream should I put on?" Then the pharmacist asked "did you doctor prescribe anything for you?" And the lady said "No I didn't go see my doctor, I've been dabbing my own urine at the poisoned place, and I've been eating 2 walnuts a day. It helped a little."

    Clearly she subscribes to the Moises Alou school of medicine.
