How to use prescription in a sentence?

  1. 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.

  2. Rahul Gupta:

    It is an evolving process because now we're seeing these pills, counterfeit drugs that are often being marketed through social media to impact youth, and the fact is…if you're attempting to obtain drugs anywhere other than prescription drugs through a legitimate pharmacy, two out of five chances are there that they will have fentanyl, often a lethal dose in it.

  3. Daniel Bucheli:

    While President Donald Trump has expanded health care choices and decreased costs, not to mention lowered prescription drug prices and increased transparency in the industry, 2020 Democrats want to go far beyond Obamacare, the 2020 Democrat field is embracing a government takeover of health care under the' Medicare-for-all' banner that would eliminate private insurance, increase wait times, and decrease the quality of medical care.

  4. Ian Paul:

    Even though we know metric units are safer and more accurate, too many healthcare providers are still writing that prescription using spoon-based dosing, some parents use household spoons to administer it, which can lead to dangerous mistakes.

  5. Getty Images/Reuters -RRB- Sanders:

    It's not only those two, it is 50 Republicans who have been adamant not only in pushing an anti-Democratic agenda but also opposing our efforts to try to lower the costs of prescription drugs, trying to expand Medicare to include dental, hearing and eyeglasses, to improve the disastrous situation in home health care, in child care, to address the existential threat of climate change. You got 50 Republicans who don’t want to do anything, except criticize the president.
