The medicines such as the contraceptive pill or antidepressants will be dispensed in the pharmacy only on presentation of a prescription even if the prescription white.
One of the drugs of band C is a market that is rather greedy that run to about € 3 billion each year. Not surprisingly, the decree approved by the government had turned on the controversy on the part of the owners of the pharmacies.
The concern is that diverted a share of the market in favour of large-scale distribution and pharmaceuticals. On the contrary, the holders of the latter claim still for authorisation to sell medicines that include the recipe and that they are to cargo of the Ssn.
The reason is simple, to dispense medication is always a pharmacist, whether the sale occurs in the pharmacy or in the supermarket.
