When a prescription medication is not needed, patients often appreciate advice on nonprescription treatments. A field trip to the local pharmacy can help keep you up-to-date on available over-the-counter medications. I even buy samples of those I consider effective for symptom relief to keep in my office to show patients. Most appreciate the specific recommendations.
