Health » Antibiotics Sold Without Prescriptions
Oct 02, 2004


"In this country, you are supposed to get a prescription for antibiotics," said study author Elaine Larson, an associate dean and professor of pharmaceutical and therapeutic nursing at the Columbia University School of Nursing. However, in many Latin American countries, antibiotics are sold without a prescription, she added.
The practice is troubling, according to Larson, because not every antibiotic works for every illness and you need to be tested to find out what the infection is before the right antibiotic can be prescribed.
