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."
