(单词翻译:单击)

Bernie: Oh, I'm in so much pain! Where is the medication we got from the pharmacy?

Gloria: It's right here, but we need to read the label first. Okay, these are the active ingredients and they seem okay. This warning says that we need to watch out for any allergic reactions. It also says to ask your doctor before using it if you have heart problems.

Bernie: I don't. Can you just give me the medication?

Gloria: I'm checking to make sure the seal under the cap isn't broken, just to be on the safe side. I also need to read the dosage information so you'll know how much to take. It says, "Adults (12 years or older): Two tablets every four hours; do not exceed 12 tablets in 24 hours."

Bernie: That's fine. That's fine. Where is the prescription medication from my doctor?

Gloria: Here it is. This one has several warnings. It says that it may cause drowsiness or dizziness. It also says, "This drug may impair your ability to drive."

Bernie: I don't plan to drive today or any day soon. Now will you please give me my medication?

Gloria: I will as soon as I get this childproof cap off.

Bernie: I may be dead by then!
