Examples of prescriptions in a Sentence

  1. Strugatsky:

    When I feel bad, I work. When I have problems, when I'm depressed, when I'm bored with life, I sit down to my work. There are probably other prescriptions, but I don't know them. Or they don't work for me. You want my advice -- here it is Go and work. Thank God that people like you and me need only paper and pencil to work.

  2. Elizabeth Burch:

    These are the folks that are on the front lines, they’re seeing the same people coming in and they’re seeing the same doctors writing prescriptions.

  3. Curtis Sliwa:

  4. Senator Alexander:

    We found that there was a good deal of misunderstanding about what the CDC guideline was intended to do, theyre not supposed to be a substitute for an individual doctors decision about what the appropriate prescription is for a patient. We have this problem when the federal government or a government agency issues guidelines, they suddenly become law. People become afraid. You have insurance companies refusing to reimburse for opioid prescriptions. Its easier just to follow [ the guidelines ] rather than make your own decision.

  5. Josh Shapiro:

    Purdue ignored the safety of Pennsylvanians, some of whom died as a result of the illegal and suspicious prescriptions written by these doctors. Purdue took full advantage of the situation. They targeted doctors with unsavory practices, they lied to sell more drugs, and as a result, they pumped our commonwealth with as much Oxy as possible.
