    Default Pastilla 81

    My friend complained of pain in all his body. He went to the pharmacy and was given "pastilla 81". He feels a bit better. But I am curious. Does anyone know what "pastilla 81" might be? Google is not being my friend on this!

    By the way, is it a man thing or a Dominicain thing to just take whatever pill is given to you without asking questions?

    Cheers
    Danielle

    Someone like Dv8 may be able to tell you with more certainty, but the only thing I know of that's 81mg is those baby aspirins that people take for heart issues nowadays. Aspirin was originally meant for pain, so that's a possibility.

    I buy them in bulk for my grandpa as he takes one daily.

    my best guess is that he was given an aspirin 81 milligrams. many people take it daily for its benefits for the heart. it is a low dose but still may have a mild effect as a pain killer...

    yes, dominicans usually go to the pharmacy, say they have pain/fever/rash/whatever and ask for a pill that will cure them. and then swallow whatever they are given without questioning.

    You can say that again. And again. And again.....

    my favourite client was an old haitian guy who showed up and announced he had a dolor vaginal. sorry, but for pu**y problems there is no other cure but a new pu**y. and we don't sell it here.

    Thank you all. He says the pills are very strong and really work well. Does not sound like baby aspirin to me! However, he never take pills of any kind so maybe his body reacts very well to just a bit of medecina. Oh well. As long as it works.
    Thanks again.

    did a little googling... "pastilla" seems to translate to "pill".

    Maybe they are vitamin B1, which is a vitamin B complex....Thiamine is a vitamin, also called vitamin B1
    B complex vitamins are good for body pain. (specially after work out)

    I was at a pharmacy yesterday, there was a guy with a prescription from a doctor for a medicine in suspension. The lady at the pharmacy said: no, that's wrong, you shouldn't buy that in suspension, I am going to give you tablets.

    I was almost starting to interfere and say: "Are you his doctor?! Give him what the prescription says, or let him call his doctor to confirm!", but then I thought: never mind, I know dominicans cant stand to be doubted on their authority on a subject.
