If it's not prescribed by a doctor?From Pub 502, discussing what medical expenses are deductible: Except for insulin, you cannot include in medical expenses amounts you pay for a drug that is not prescribed.The classic example is that if the doctor writes you a prescription for 800mg ibuprofen tablets, you can deduct the cost of the prescription ibuprofen; but if the doctor just tells you to take 4 Advil at a time, you can't deduct the cost of the OTC ibuprofen.I'll be interested to hear if any of the pros know of a situation where this would not hold.Patzer
