Meds For Sale!!

Well, for those wondering if I have shifted my loyalties from transcription and moved into pharmaceuticals, sorry not that..

I dont know if it is the same in all the places in India, but this kind of strikes strange to me.. when I get my prescription filled in the pharmacy, I get complete strips instead of the number prescribed..

for example, the doc gives me 2 tablets to take but I still end up buying the 10-tablet strip because they wont sell them loose it seems.. what the hell.. what will I do with the rest of them.. not that they are vitamin pills that i can pop or some snack for storage.. To hell with such rules, just regulate the sales and avoid misuse..

is it the same in all the places???

PS: I have figured out after talking to a lot of people ad even the doctors that that is how it is in Mumbai.. so I am left with strips and strips of meds with just a couple or 3 used up.. somehow, this practise does not seem right.. i ask a tablet and you give me a strip.. what do you expect me to do with the rest of them????

It sounds like a business trick playing with our necessity. I guess its not the fact.
