Okay...someone explain this.
I was reading the little printout they give you in the pharmacy with your prescription that contains all the various uses, contraindications, side-effects, how to take your meds, etc...

Plus, there is a recipe for some kind of stuffed-pita sandwich?

:wtf:

Is this some kind of value-added joke?

3. Just a guess
but, is your medicine for high cholesterol or diabetes or something like that? Maybe the pita is low cholesterol or low calorie or something - a suggestion for a healthy diet to go with the medicine.

12. That must be it, the munchies!
But seriously, maybe it's a healthy recipe that's automatically printed on every slip as a public service type thing; or maybe it's an ad. Does the recipe include any brand name ingredients?

5. I don't get anything like that with my meds
I just get a sticker on the outside of the bag that tells me what the drug is, my dosage and how to take it.

I just get a huge over-inflated bill for my meds.. Luckily I'm only on pre-natals and they cost me oh.. $35 a month after my "precription drug coverage!"

on edit: sorry to sound so bitter.. not in a good mood and i feel like crap tonight!

7. You hide the meds in the stuffed-pita sandwich.
It's like dosing your pets. Would you rather do it the hard way?

11. Mmm....vicodin stuffed pita......
Sounds yummy, but you have to have a big honking fly swatter to keep Rush Limbaugh from trying to land on it.
