we just finished the written part of the interview and were called in a group of three people. when we entered inside,we were asked to sit, and to our amazement we were served malt. Not as if the malt was digesting.

The instruction is simple, said one of the examiners, take your malt, relax,we are not going to bite. There are three questions for the three of you, you raise your hand, answer the one you know and that is all. listen attentively.

  1. what drug do we use to prevent malaria in pregnant women?

Can you Deliver 36…WHY MEN DESIRE SEX MORE THAN WOMEN

Can you deliver?

Can you deliver?

As a pharmacist or a medical doctor, irrespective of your area of practice, be it in the community, hospital, politics, bank, the house of God as a minister etc. People always look up to you to solve one or two problems for them. Depending on the extent of your practice and the difficult level of the problem, you can either dispatch the answers with gumption there and then or do some consultation either by reading up or asking a friend or colleague you felt might have the answers.
Recently, I had a case of a client that came to get some prescription drugs, as the sales boy was attending to him, he indicated an interest that he would like to see the pharmacist, I asked him to come into the office. To cut a long story short, he said he needed to get answers to two questions that has been bothering his mind.
1. Why is it that I always desire to have sex more than my wife, she can sometimes tell me she is not in the mood, she is tired and all that. Why can’t I too be tired or not interested like her, why am I always interested?
2. Is there any drug I can buy to either increase her interest or decrease mine?
What can you say about this or to this man?
You can now leave you comments here, it is functional.

A client walks into your premise, with some prescriptions, he told you if any of the drugs he wants is not available, he rather not buy anyone. You took the prescription, went through, and saw some very expensive drugs, thank God all the drugs are available, you calculated and it amounted to 68k. Then he asked, are you pharmacist, you said yes and then he said “add Sunday Sunday medicine to the bill” and why is it so called?….oh boy, please which one be Sunday Sunday medicine???

Can You Deliver 34…The BPH

Can You Deliver 34…The BPH

As a pharmacist first, and then as a community pharmacist practicing in a community setting, you will be inundated on daily basis with all manner of people and all manner of requests. There is no gainsaying the rate of registration of drugs at NAFDAC is comparable to ‘fast and furious’ that a diligent pharmacist will not be able to keep count of all incoming brand names, thus, one will be asked of a product/brand he or she had never heard of before. How you deal with this is a topic for another day.
As a pharmacist, either as a medical rep for a company, practicing in the hospital or community setting, it has become apparent that a

Can You Deliver 33…The Eusol mix

My little experience as a medical rep has taught me that no one knows what challenges awaits them on daily basis.
On this very fateful day, I arrived at the premise of one my clients, a very big pharmacy in Lagos. As I was parking my car, one of the boys rushed to my car, and said, Pharmacist, thank God you are here, we have a very important customer in there, but he has been asking us some questions, most of which we cannot answer, he is very angry now, called us charlatans and he is demanding to see our pharmacist, and the truth is that our pharmacist is not in town and his number is not even going through, the man has been asking if it is only one pharmacist we have here, we have told him no, that the other one’s phone is switched off and

Can You Deliver 31… The trust.

There was this client of mine, with whom I had established a very warm and robust ‘pharmacist-patient’ relationship with. Whenever she, or any member of her family, for whatever reason gets a prescription for any medication, she comes to our place to purchase the drugs and also seek my advice weather such drugs were appropriate or not, If I have additional advice to give or some precautions they must take while on the drugs…It was a relationship built solely on trust.
Last Saturday, while on a queue at a filling station for fuel, she called that she was at our pharmacy and needed to see me and that it was very urgent. I had to entrust my fifty liter keg to one of the attendants who was a friend to a friend (if you understand

Ok, this edition of can you deliver was actually from my inbox, here it is undiluted
Dear proud pharmacist,
I love what you are doing and I want to share an experience I had recently. I got to work yesterday to find one of my best client waiting for me, we exchange pleasantries and she informed me that she has been here for over 30mins, eyaah, my apologies, I was just held by a little traffic, we both walked into my office, sat her down to hear her complain, she told me that she is angry with me because I did not attend her sister’s wedding, meanwhile she came personally to invite me, on that too I tendered an unreserved apology, then she went on with her complain, she told me she took her 1 year old child to an hospital to complain of a diarrhea that has refused to go even after treating her with ORS and zinc, though she was getting better when she was giving her the ORS, zinc and flaggyl, the baby was almost ok and playing before her husband insisted that she take the bay to the hospital as she was running temperature a bit, so at the hospital they diagnosed malaria and typhoid and gave us all these drugs (she brought out some drugs), but since then, though she no longer runs temperature, but the stooling has tripled and now she is very weak, I took her back, they said I should continue with the drugs. I checked the drugs and they were P.alaxin, augmentin, pirirton for children, multivite and vitamin C. ..as I was going through the drug, her phone rang, she excused herself and came back about two minutes later, she told me that was her brother in law, that he is a pharmacist too, that she has told him so much about me,so he wants to see that my pharmacist today, and I asked her where he was now, she told me he is coming, just parking his car….knock knock knock …come I said, as the door opened…lo and behold it was my lecturer, not just that, he is my project supervisor in clinical pharmacy…….
I will stop the gist here,…at this junction, CAN YOU DELIVER???, for those of us that graduated from UNN, imagine say na Prof Aguwa or Prof mrs. Ukwe enter, hehe…. me I dey come o…I go see una by Friday
