Snider - I had the same worry, and mentioned it to the doctor when we were discussing the antibiotics for the list of medications. She was a very "proper" British lady and I was on my best formal behaviour as well. When she didn't reply directly to my question about what to do with a bout of appendicitis while 5 days from any help she didn't reply directly but her expression spoke volumes. In my best American idiom, I noted "In that case I'm screwed, aren't I?" and she laughed out load and nodded her head. then again, she doubled the amount of antibiotics she allocated to me, so my directness probably broke the ice
Sailingdog - I didn't inquire about "Zofran" patches; I didn't realize they existed!
