I am allergic to anything that is not a narcotic

Patient:  "I need some Percocet."
Nurese:  "The doctor ordered Tylenol.  You can have that."
Patient:  "I am allergic to Tylenol.  I have to take Percocet instead."
Nurse:  "Percocet contains Tylenol."
Patient:  "It does?  That's okay.  The Percocet cancels out the Tylenol part, so I can take it."
