G/O/P: medical evaluation /prescription from Puerto Rico

Hello everyone,

I am translating some documents from Puerto Rico. Among them, there is a medical prescription (psychiatrist) with some abbreviations that I can't quite figure out.

The evaluation part of the sheet has the two following abbreviations (along with Edad and Fecha):

Sui = suicida?
Hom = homicida?

The prescription part has the regular abbreviations (RX, Re, Cita), along with this one, which is also what brings me to you, fellow forum users:

G/O/P = ?

My guess is that this could be "gotas" / "oral" / "pastillas", but it doesn't quite make sense, and my medical and technical dictionaries, along with various medical glossaries, have yielded no definitive answer. In the document I am translating, the physician wrote "100" in this section. Any help I could get with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Wow!!! That's one I haven't seen. Did he put anything beside the 100? Sounds like a very bad Rx if it's for a medication. No dosage, only route.

    If not, might have to leave it G/o/p.

    I apologize for the late response, I was traveling. The only additional context I can provide is that the prescription calls for a dose Paxil, but the G/O/P text is a fixed, pre-printed part of the prescription (all the evaluation/prescription sheets have it). As I said, this is a psychiatrist from Puerto Rico. Thank you.

    I have an update, in case anyone runs across something similar in the future: I finally figured out (I called a doctor in PR) that it means "Genérico/Original/Plan". I guess this indicates whether the doctor recommends a generic or brand name medication, and how much or how often the insurance covers the medication (100%, 75%, etc., every 30 days or 60 days, etc.). Best.
