Pharm Tech: So this new medication of yours shouldn't have many side effects.
Me: But I take valporic acid and lithium for bipolar disorder, both of which this medication contradicts.
Pharm Tech: Oh. Er. Well, then. Um...
Me: Just.. please tell me what the side effects are. Are they any different in my situation?
Pharm Tech: Yes, actually. Are you taking this for depression?
Me: Yes.
Pharm Tech: Oh. Well, since you have BP, watch out - this might actually make your depression worse. If you suddenly have suicidal thoughts, get to the hospital. Physical side effects include dizzyness, nausea, headaches--
Me: Sounds pretty standard.
Pharm Tech: --but if you see any rashes on your face and chest, get to the hospital. One type indicates a common allergic reaction. The other will get into your lungs and kill you within a few hours.
Me: How will I know what the regular rash looks like as opposed to the fatal one?
Pharm Tech: Oh, trust me, honey, you'll know! *wink wink*
Me: No. No, I won't. What does it look like?
Pharm Tech: Don't worry! You can't miss it! It will be spreading too fast for you to not notice!
Me: FFFFFFFUUUUUUUU...
