The issue in GetHuman-bobsorle's own words
My dermatologist prescribed Mediplast Pads **%, and I have been getting them at a pharmacy, assuming it was prescribed medicine. No sales tax was charged. When I switched to a different pharmacy, they charged sales tax. When I questioned it, they said that Mediplast Pads **% is an OTC medicine. IRS Publication *** states, "You can include in medical expenses amounts you pay for prescribed medicines and drugs. A prescribed drug is one that requires a prescription by a doctor for its use by an individual. You can also include amounts you pay for insulin. Except for insulin, you can't include in medical expenses amounts you pay for a drug that isn't prescribed." This drug was prescribed and has an RX*, and its NDC * is *****-****-**. My question is, can I count this as a medical expense on my **** Schedule A?
