It was for people who don't have a Dr or insurance. Is this true if so when will the program go in effect?

I can't see that happening unless they make it available OTC for everyone, like they did motrin and aleve. If they ever did that, it would be pushed by the insurances because they don't pay for OTC. I did hear there were one or two meds they would make OTC but it wasn't anything really great.

There was a bit in the news on this. The FDA is looking into it more. It did not sound wise because they were taking most common meds for heart and diabetes which ought to be carefully monitored. Made no sense to me and will increase the cost of medication for people on Medicare and Medicaid as these insurances will not pay for hem. Therefore a greater cash outlay will be placed on people already financially burdened. Plus you can't use it as a tax deduction as only prescriptions are allowed.

I don't know where you heard this... but I wouldn't count on it and I wouldn't get my hopes up on this happening!! No matter what, there are some medications that have to be monitored and just because some drugs like Motrin, zantac, etc, have become OTC, doesn't mean that others will too! so like I said, don't get your hopes up on this happening!
