Dr. Natasha :

hello

Dr. Natasha :

when was your pneumonia?

Dr. Natasha :

are you on any medication now?

Dr. Natasha :

hi

Dr. Natasha :

can you see my questions?

Customer:

My pneumonia was three weeks ago. I am still on antibiotics.

Dr. Natasha :

which antibiotic?

Customer:

Let's leave it. I only want to know whether i can try omeprazole.

Dr. Natasha :

you can

Dr. Natasha :

but the antibiotic may be causing your food to take poorly

Dr. Natasha :

that is the usual culprit

Dr. Natasha :

so when you are off the antibiotics for a week or so, your taste should come back without any issue

Customer:

My food tastes okay. It is just the wine which tastes foul.

Dr. Natasha :

yes, there are some which specifically make alcohol taste weird

Dr. Natasha :

but in answer to your question, you can surely take omeprazole

Dr. Natasha :

no worries

Customer:

Okay, and thanks very much.

Dr. Natasha :

you are welcome

Dr. Natasha :

did I provide you with excellent service?
