Convenience or negligence – Should convenience stores sell medicines

文字-A A +A

Health Bureau plans to open up non-prescription drugs – cold, stomach and diarrhea medicine - for sale in convenience stores has come up against strong criticism from pharmacist associations who point to the clear labeling on the top of the medicines, “Use as directed by a medical practitioner”. Pharmacist associations insist that with medicines sold unrestricted without professional instruction it is impossible to guarantee safety.

So called, non-prescription medicines include common cold remedies and pain relief tablets as well as nasal remedies, stomach remedies, medicine for diarrhea and insect repellants – with such a huge cross-spectrum just how can one differentiate? As long as the top is labeled “Use as directed by a medical practitioner”, it is considered a non-prescription medicine. This issue of openly selling non-prescription drugs seems set to cast a net of confusion over all parties involved, and is sure to give rise to a wave of conflicting opinions.

方便VS隨便 超商藥不藥? ( 黃郁淇 )

衛生署想要開放「非處方藥」,未來能在超商買到,像是感冒藥、胃藥、止瀉藥等,引起藥師公會強烈反彈,因為上頭明明就標示「醫師藥師指示藥品」,跟一般成藥不同,藥師公會認為,沒有專業人員諮詢,「指示藥品」隨處可買,民眾用藥安全誰能擔保?所謂非處方藥,包含一般的感冒藥跟止痛錠,另外還有像治療鼻子的藥品,以及胃藥、止瀉藥,甚至是蚊蟲軟膏等,到底要如何辨別?只要上頭寫著「醫師藥師指示藥品」,就是非處方藥,指示藥品跟成藥將在超商混著賣,沒有專業人員諮詢,引起各方議論紛紛,這一場「超商藥不藥」的大戰,恐怕將掀起一陣波瀾。
