Over Counter Drugs

Has anyone heard about the new Law coming into effect supposedly shortly that we will no longer be able to buy prescription drugs over the counter at the local pharmacy and will all have to get a proper prescription from a doctor.

if you need certain medication often then you really do need to see a doctor first to check you are not masking something more serious.

Re: Over Counter Drugs

Self medication can be dangerous; certain medicines have contra-indications when mixed with other types of medicine.

Re: Over Counter Drugs

Actually just heard this week that generic Viagra is on its way, which means that other firms can make it and sell it at whatever cost they want, because the patent (or licence is running out), think it was on radio five this week.
The report went on to say that though we are desperate to discover new anti biotics, some of the big pharma companies are not happy to invest billions as in the past, because the period of time that they get to sell them before other companies can copy the product is not long enough for them to recover their costs.

My dog injured his back leg recently which resulted in a limp. The Viagra seems to have got him back on all fives now though.
