Would you normally just abbriviate this to "receta?" - Izanoni1, SEP 27, 2009
I don't think so...remember that "receta" could also mean "recipe." - --Mariana--, SEP 27, 2009
I see what you mean by that, but a pharmacist wouldn't normally ask for your "recipe." What made me wonder about this was that I used to work as an optician and I didn't remember the prescription being called a "receta óptica." It was just a "receta " - Izanoni1, SEP 27, 2009
Ahhh...context is everything. I see what you mean. - --Mariana--, SEP 27, 2009
