I was wondering the same thing...I don't feel that the majority of the public have a good understanding about statins and such. Remember the tragedy involving with Bengay? You're going to see a lot of people misusing these dangerous medicines, despite advice from pharmacists. They could just come to the pharmacy and buy it w/o any objections. Accidents happen and I believe that you're going to see many cases involved with these drugs in the future.
I'm not a pharmacy student yet and don't have much experience, so I have trouble understanding the advantages of this situation. Someone care to help?
