Reality check: Is it reasonable for me to have a moment of internal WTFery at this exchange?

Neurologist's receptionist/assistant/office person, I don't know, I didn't ask: "And what medication are you on?"

Me: "Gabitril."

Her: "Neurontin?"

Me: ", Gabitril."

Her: "That's not the generic of Neurontin?"

Me: "No, you're thinking of gabapentin. Gabitril is tiagabine."

Her: "You're sure?"

Me: "I promise."

I mean, okay, not everyone has the encyclopedic knowledge of anticonvulsants that I have, but a) lady, you work for a neurologist, and b) why so insistent? Not that it even matters, because you are not the person who can answer my question about my medication anyway.

I dunno, I always double-check myself because I know that I know more than most people. But also, most people don't work for a neurologist. Neurontin is really commonly prescribed, though. I hope it's just that she's new.
