Favorite patient of the day

Me: Are you allergic to any medicines?

Patient: Yeah, I'm allergic to hydrocodone.

Are you currently taking any medicines?

I take Lortab for my knees?

You are allergic to hydrocodone, but take Lortab? You know
hydrocodone is the generic name for Lortab?

Yeah, but when is says Lortab, I'm not allergic.

Reminds me of the patients who are "allergic" to Tylenol but have no problem with Percocet.
