can you show the 2 tables full structure? and the column that is the foreign key?
usually, this should be a 3-tables design:

TABLE: patient
p_no
p_name
comments
...


TABLE: drug
d_no
d_name
comments
...

TABLE: prescription
p_id
p_no  => patient.p_no
d_no  => drug.d_no
date_start
date_end
comments
...

prescription = dose :)

this will be the base SQL...
you might need to add more conditions...
select *
  from patient p
  join dose 
    on dose.pno = p.pno 
  join drug d
    on d.dno = dose.dno
