http://www.nytimes.com/2005/11/29/health/29cons.html I heard a blip on Good Morning America while getting ready for class this morning, and came across this when doing research for a developmental biology project. Personally, I've seen patients come to the counter to pick up their script for ibuprofen and drop a box of Aleve right next to the Rx bag. As a member of the health care community, I feel obligated to point out the ingredient duplication, and my pharmacists have encouraged us to do so when we see such a thing. I know lots of people are pulling out random scripts for naproxen and ibuprofen and the like that they will never use, just to redeem a gift card coupon, but there are people out there who legitimately don't realize they're the same thing. This is in part why I'm very conservative on the issue of making prescription products OTC. Don't get me wrong, I think that the patient should be pro-active in their health care but I think this is a grisly side-effect of our self-medicating society. How do you guys feel?
