Pharmaceutical dispensing programs at the clinic level typically provide treatments for acute symptoms using generic medications.   A starting practice might start with 10 medications and only purchase 5-10 bottles of each.  Some practices providing medication dispensing will offer 30-40 different products.  Because these medications are prepackaged, there may be 3 or 4 different pill counts for the same drug.
