Patient: What do you mean Zack can be advised online by us? Can you call in that script for me? I have no insurance and can’t afford to go to the doctor

Doctor: Hello,
That z-pack which is azithromycin. This is available in denomination of 500mg and should be taken after a proper diagnosis of the ailment. Hence a online site is no substitute for a local examination. So if its available in your country as OTC, then you may take it else there is actually no option but to report to a physician.
regards
