Barbados: Over-the-counter drug worry

A DOCTOR IS hoping for a crackdown on the sale of over-the-counter antibiotics without prescription before it’s too late.
Head of the Infection Control Department at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) Dr Corey Forde said such a practice was a serious problem and a catalyst in the growing resistance to antibiotics. “The over-counter gaining of antibiotics in absence of a prescription is real; it happens and it shouldn’t,” he said. Forde was addressing a Barbados Drug Service forum on How To Prevent Antibiotic Resistance at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre. (TG) Nation News
