"Your blood pressure's really high. Are you sure you're taking your medicine?"
"Yep. Every time I feel it acting up, I take a pill."
"Every time you feel what acting up?"
"My blood pressure."
"And what does that feel like?"
"You know, like a sensation in my blood vessels."
"What kind of sensation?"
"Like a pressure, sort of."
"Okay, that's not good. You realize you're supposed to take the pills every day, right? We talked about that last time."
"Yeah, yeah, that's what you said, but I don't want to overmedicate. So I just take it when I feel something. Otherwise I don't need it."
"No, you do."
"I don't like taking something every day."
"Yeah, but you need it."
"I just want something that can treat the problem when I have it. Like Tylenol, or vitamins."
"Yeah, when I eat something unhealthy, I take a vitamin afterwards, to balance it out."
"That's not how nutrition works."
"No, it works for me."
"No, it doesn't."
"I just don't like the way medicine feels. I don't want to take too much."
"This is a very low dose."
"Can I cut the pills in half?"
"No, it's a very low dose."
"I'm going to cut the pills in half."
"If you're going to do that, I'll give you a larger dose."
"Oh, you can give me a larger dose and I can just cut them in half?"
"Uh, I guess. If that means you'll take them. Sure."
"Great. I mean, I'm not going to take it every day, but I'll take it more if it's only half."
