Should pharmaceuticals be available to anyone?

Forums - General Discussion - Should pharmaceuticals be available to anyone?

Granted, with certain protocols in place, and other restrictions, should pharma be more over the counter?

Case in point I have strep. Just waited for 2 hours for a doctor to do a test that came back negative (only tests for the most common strain)

And prescribed me penicillin. 

I knew what I had when I walked in there, just give me the damn perscription. Ffs

No, people are over medicated as it is.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

No, people are idiots. Healthcare should be available to everyone so that doctors can diagnose them properly and prescribe the drugs. It's not even about abusing them but the loads of people that will kill themselves because they have no idea how to diagnose correctly or do not care which dose to take.

Then again, we might be a lot better off with stupid people killing themselves. Soooo... hell yeah strong prescription drugs should be available to anyone!

Yep, a pill for every ill. The whole medical proffesion (physical wise) are all pawns to the pharmaceutical industry.

I kinda like the controll in the hands of the doctors.



That would only make things work.

It's up to doctors to be able to prescribe medicine.

well supposedly, in other countries antibiotics are available over the counter.

I think such a move would probably save people a lot of time and money.



Yes. We should also legalise and regulate most recreational drugs while we're at it.



Nope.
Because people abuse and misuse it and turn normal stuff on resistant stuff, that'll fuck us all up.

Medicine is not to be taken lightly, and as people in general can't handle it well, no it shouldn't.
