It looks like an ordinary piece of paper with writing you can't read, to get medicines that beem expensive. Actually, a prescription is a passport to better health. Physicians study about ten years to be able to wiite one. PharmacistK study about tive years to learn how to compound them. Drug firms sometimes spend .millions to perfect the drugs in them. The few dollars all this knowledge costs saves you sickness-time and sometimes your life. YOUR DOCTOR CAW PHONE US when you need • medicine.
