So they prescribed one of these Advair things to me for my pneumonia. You know, the ones heavily marketed for asthma and COPD. Which came with 8 pages of directions.
And I still used it wrong for a whole day.
Yeah, I do have a PhD, why do you ask?
Heaven help even more elderly people than myself who get prescribed these things.
Plus the Target pharmacist was happy to dispense ampules of liquid Albuterol to me. Which requires a nebulizer to actually administer to yourself. Which you figure out only after going back to the car, opening the packages from the pharmacist, and saying to yourself WTF!?? And no, when you go back into the store to ask them about it, they don't actually stock nebulizers, without which you can't use the medicine they just dispensed to you, and only one drugstore WAY on the other side of town does. Which is just what you want to hear when you're sick and feeling like crap and all you want to do is go home and crawl in bed.
