Anne 

Well, I think you're suffering from depression.I'm going to give you a prescription for some Nitropan tablets. They're anti-depressants. Here you are. The tablets I'm giving you are 1000 mg.They're quite strong, so just take one tablet in the morning and another at night. There's enough here for eight weeks, but come back and see me in a month, so we can see how you' re getting on.

I'm afraid you have a mild case of the flu. This is a prescription for some medicine called Cordosole 5 that should sort it out. I want you to take two tablets three times a day, before meals. It should get better in a few days. OK?
