New Guy....You are a fine example of what generations
of AMA brainwashing can accomplish. Lots of people
treat themselves at home. One example is diabetics
who give themselves injections of insulin.
Many persons with high blood pressure monitor their
condition on a daily basis. The case for restricting access to antibiotics has always been that overuse
would result in super bugs. We have already reached
that stage. I don't mind paying for a single opinion
and the prescribing of a drug to manage a condition.
After one visit, I should be able to buy and use
the same drug without the expense of a doctor visit.
I should also be able to access lab services without
seeing a doctor. This is especially true when treating
a condition that can only be managed and not cured. As I said in my post, monopolies result in higher costs.
Of course, taking responsibility for leading a
healthy lifestyle would also reduce costs. I know
persons who are being treated for high cholesterol
and persist in remaining on a high cholesterol diet.
Of course, I am speaking about reasonably competent
individuals so I am not suggesting that changes
would benefit all. The safety features of the drug
monopoly is damaged when a prescription goes to the
over the counter status. Is it more safe now than
it was before. BTW, thousands of American citizens
living in the Rio Grande valley along with thousands
of winter Texans (temporary winter visitors from
northern states) buy their medications in Mexico.
Follow the dollar young man.
