V is for Viagra

Ahh, Viagra. The ongoing pharmacy joke. I'm pretty sure none of you need "information" about it, so I'll give you my favorite Viagra story from the pharmacy.

I was still a pharmacy student and working hard to do the best consult with each patient that I could. I would diligently go over how to take their meds, what it was for, and what to expect.

A man came through drive thru for his Viagra. I came over with my pearly white lab coat and "pharmacy student" name tag and without any embarrassment, went through his whole Viagra consult.

The man listened and waited until I was done. Then he said he had taken the med before and was very concerned about one side effect and asked if I knew anything about it. He'd being experiencing a stiff neck.

I muted the microphone and went to my textbooks and references to look up the incidence of getting a stiff neck while taking Viagra. After several minutes, and on finding nothing, I looked around the pharmacy. Everyone was smirking at me. I went back and turned on the drive-through mic and the man was absolutely rolling laughing at me.

Ahh, I got it. "Stiff" neck - very funny.

The whole pharmacy thought so as well.

To be young and gullible again...at least I'm still blonde :)

  1. Ha! funny! I have a Viagra story too.

    I had a neighbor (who knew I was a pharmacist and loved pumping me for info). Well, he was older (obvsiously) and was asking me about top sellers in the store, which had me saying that Viagra was one of the top drugs I was dispensing. So I shrugged and said, "Yeah, I guess that stuff must work."
    So then he frowned at me and said, "Not always."

    I was speechless. Too much information!!! LOL!
