Marriage 501, Lecture 787: What to do with the leftover drugs you can't sell on the street
You will remember that melatonin plus me is not a good combination. If there is a side effect to be had from a drug - hair loss, weight gain, nausea, dizziness - I will get it. I will get that side effect without getting any of the therapeutic benefit, as well. I will note that if weight loss is a side effect, I will not get that one.
SH: What am I supposed to do with it?
Me: You take melatonin.
SH: Yeah, but these are [tiny little amount] milligram tablets. It's a super-small dose. I take a [six times the dosage] tablet when I take it.
Me: Can't you just take six of the tiny ones?
SH [rolling eyes]: No!
Me: Why not?
SH: Because I'd have to chew six of them! And the pill with the larger dosage is actually smaller than these!
Me: So we're just going to waste them?
SH: We can give them away.
Me: What, in the bag of little hotel shampoos and soaps that we give to the homeless shelter?
