Ah, the life of a training pharmacist: I have now been taking Eltroxin for one month and three weeks. The last time I had to fetch my repeat, I had the bad luck of walking into a pharmacy where the pharmacist had gone to lunch and left the place in control of his trainees.
At first I thought they were just spinning a little – a little overwhelmed.
But then I heard someone exclaim:
Trainee 1: “But we don’t have Eltroxin 50mg!”
Trainee 2: “So just make her take more than one tab a day!”
I got a bit of a fright and waved them over – and resisted the urge to ask if they were trying to kill me. (Because I know that mistakes are easy to make.)
The script says 50 MICROgrams, not miligrams.
