Comments for FDA General
1. General Comments Please, please release most drugs to non-prescription status. The medical profession has become a monopoly to which all Americans must pay homage and dues for prescription drugs. They have no right being the only authority allowed to care for us. Like many Americans I have a few medical problems that re-occur every so often. Yet, when I want to obtain the medication that has always worked well I first have to pay $60 for a visit to the doctor. Then I have to pay an inflated price for the medication which I already know I need. In many cases prescriptions should have been written for life; yet the medical professions will not do this because it ends monthly and yearly visits. If you change States, prescriptions from another State WILL NOT WORK! It isn't fair. It prevents many of us from receiving medical assistance. Please give me back the right to purchase medications over the counter. Take that privilage away from Doctors. The privilage of being the only group allowed to prescribe my mediation should never have been given away. It is a violation of the Constitution (Ist Amendment, I believe. That privilage should belong to me and not to them. Sincerely, Pierre Angiel
