In a bid to reduce the misuse of OTC medicines, including pseudoephedrine and codeine-based products, Unichem are introducing new protocols.
Photo identification may be requested at point of sale, and records may be made of some sales.
"Unichem are concerned about the public health problems caused by the misuse of some medicines," says Unichem chief executive, Tim Roper.
These simple measures are designed to ensure safer use of the medicines purchased from our pharmacies, says Tim Roper. Unichem are confident that the majority of their customers will recognise the importance of this move, and support their efforts to ensure improved medicine management.
