Filling a Prescription
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Your ear is hurting. You've gone to the doctor. He has given you a prescription. Now what do you do? Go to your friendly neighborhood pharmacy.
 
2     The most important thing a pharmacy sells is drugs. If your doctor gives you a prescription, you will need to have it filled at the pharmacy. This place is also sometimes called a drug store.
 
3     The person who fills your prescription is the pharmacist. She has gone to college for many years to learn her job. She knows a lot about all kinds of drugs. Some people call her a druggist.
 
4     If you need to have a prescription filled, give it to the pharmacist. She will read what the doctor wrote and give you the exact drug your doctor ordered. She will count out the exact amount of pills. She can also mix up certain drugs so you can take them in liquid form.
