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 thought this just sounded strange - that OTC wouldn't be deductible even if ordered to take it by your doc.But here's the IRS ruling:http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-drop/rr-03-58.pdf
