  • Pharmacy in the US

    Just got back from a 3-state visit to the US, and although I must say that p'cists are well respected over there,I do not agree with their pharmaceutical advertising,Prescription only drugs are advertised like OTC meds on TV

    Quite a few NSAIDs are also available in supermarkets e.g Naproxen

    I believe this is why the US pharmacist pay pack is at least 1.5-2.5 times larger than a UK Pharmacist .

    Colleagues wishing to locate to " greener pastures" as indicated on some pages in this forum, may want to think twice ....as I believe the American dose of pharmacy compromises quite a few principles;its definitely money driven (by the big companies)

    A member of Privte Rx just posted a You tube piece where a pharmacist gave a man the wrong person's Rx!

    It got on the local news!

    Perhaps USA's grass isn't as green. It's litigation and retribution practices are certainly a lot more different!

              Nice one John. I only ask because there were members of some sites that really criticised this one, saying it wouldn't last for 3 months, etc etc etc
