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?
I'm imagining a situation where they aren't in the aisles, but they are behind the counter like Plan B or Sudafed. Bring in your labs...the pharmacist will look at them. You have to read between the lines and see where this sort of thing would wind up if they went down the path...and that's pharmacists potentially gaining access to providing in-depth medication management.
