Pharmacist: Next, please.
Customer: Hi. I have this prescription for Bactrim from my doctor. Do you have it in stock?
Pharmacist: Let me see. Hmm, give me a minute to check. Yes, we have it – here it is.
Customer: Oh, good.
Pharmacist: Now, you need to take these pills twice a day with meals, once in the morning and once in the evening.
Customer: How long do I need to take them for?
Pharmacist: Five days. It’s important that you finish the whole package.
Customer: Okay. Are there any side effects?
Pharmacist: Er, you might feel a little sleepy, so if you do, it’s better that you don’t drive.
Customer: That’s good advice. Is there anything else that I should know?
Pharmacist: Yes. It’s a good idea to take probiotics with this medicine.
Customer: Oh, what do they do?
Pharmacist: They help the good bacteria in your stomach. I recommend these.
Customer: Are they expensive?
Pharmacist: No, not very.
Customer: Hmmm, well okay then. Can I pay with my card?
Pharmacist: Of course, just tap it on the machine. Thank you.
Customer: Great, thanks. And thanks for your help.
Pharmacist: No problem. Bye.
