I. Read the following dialogue and make your own using this vocabulary

A Visit of a Pharmaceutical Firm Representative

Representative: Doctor, I would like to show you some pharmaceuticals. May I ask for a few minutes of your attention, please?

Doctor. Certainly. I have finished examining my patients and we can go upstairs to our office.

R.: It's very kind of you. Aren't I bothering you too much?

D.: Not at all. What hypotensive drugs do you have?

R.: We have normatencil which is used in the treatment of hypertension. The preparation regulates the figures of pressure and spares the kidney of a hypertonic patient preventing vascular complications and aggravation of the disease. Such a vascular kidney protection is a real advantage of the drug.

D.: Can it be used in ambulatory practice?

R.: To be sure! The ambulatory treatment is easily controlled as the preparation is not diuretic and does not contain reserpin.

D.: So, what are the doses and how is it used?

R.: 12 tablets a day, 3 times a week or 20 days a month.

D.: And what about the contraindications?

R.: They are the same as in all hypotensive drugs.

D.: Leave me the signature, I will read it and call you tomorrow. Thank you for coming and good bye.

R.: Bye.
