I'm facing something of an ethical dilemma these days over the large number of people coming into the pharmacy looking to buy products containing pseudoephedrine. I've noticed that most of the people at my store are extremely reluctant to sell it at all, typically keeping most of what we have on a shelf facing away from the out window and falling back on the 'gosh, it looks like we're sold out ' routine constantly. I see their point, certainly. Even while trying to be non-judgmental, you do get a feel for who probably doesn't really have a serious allergy problem. Walking up to the counter and immediately asking for the Wal-phed 96ct doesn't exactly help either. And I'd rather not abet their misappropriation, though honestly if they want to rot their brains I do sort of feel it's their own issue. I'd feel worse about denying medication to someone who legitimately needed it. Basically I'm just waiting for the day I called out by a pt for lying about our stock on hand and catching hell over it. Anyone have any suggestions for ways of delicately handling these individuals?
