It was therefore almost a natural progression that Mr Dispenser made the move to record some of the comments left on his blog, Face Book page and tweeter account. He then called for more, and collated them into the book which has the wonderful title of Pills, Thrills and Methadone Spills.
My preview copy arrived before Christmas, just in time for me to while away a few hours, exhausted on the settee as I delved into the pages.
Laid out into a series of chapters, Mr Dispenser has recorded what, is regular life to us in the trade, with a humour and smile that is refreshing in modern pharmacy.
The medications that patients often mispronounce, the tablets that have a smell, lovely or otherwise, the thrill of a hot cup of tea, comments from patients, the ones that we have all heard, "it's only a tube......", the sudden influx of medications that have been on maker's delay for months.
As I read the book I could recall moments of patients mispronouncing drug names. The odd requests we are presented with. Patient's advising they do not taking any medication, apart from the heart tablet in the morning conversations. The patient who advises they have run out of a little white tablet. The patients who have bought a smile to our face with their humour, conversation or a packet of biscuits, the ones that you hope you won't see because you have to shout because they are deaf and you have a sore throat!Read more ›
If you only buy one book this year then make it this one! More useful then a bnf and defiantly more interesting then a drug tariff, this book has been cram packed full of pharmacy jokes, songs and real life story's.
it's the only book you will need if you are a pharmacy student to "prepare" you for the big bad world of pharmacy. Enjoy and remember, don't take it too seriously.
Mrs kelly Finn. Act.
Mr Dispenser has put together these stories from a wide network he has built up on various social networking and blogging site, and he deserves respect for pulling together the usually ephemeral material that people throw at each other (and then forget) into this compilation.
MrDispenser has gathered tweets and tales which are all highly amusing. The general public may not get it, not all of it anyway, but pharmacists and pharmacy colleagues everywhere will relate to it.
I look forward to a sequel so get tweeting your funnies to @MrDispenser
