One thing ER docs have to put up with is seeing patients on every conceivable drug, often at the same time. If you're an interinst or an FP and you put your patients on Zocor and don't use Lipitor you'll see patients on Zocor. When I see patients they're on everything. I even have to put up with some people who see docs trained while the Earth cooled that use MAOIs and TCAs (Hi Dr. Dinosaur, your depressed patient just took the 6 months worth of Elavil you gave her. Which pulmonologist would you like me to call to run the vent for you?). But I digress. Have you ever noticed how many patients mispronounce drugs in certain ways? Here's a list: atenolol = at-en-ol keflex = kee-flex fioricet - fire-o-cet acetaminophen - act-o-min-fin There's probably a lot of regional variation. Note that I'm not even listing the one's like phenobarbital = peanut butter balls. Anyway, just an observation.
