Twice now pharmasists have called my doctor asking them to prescribe medications - specifically - statins for a condition I don't have. I have not been diagnosed with a problem that requires the use of statins and yet people who are not privy to my blood work can request I be put on another prescription. The key here is - medication for a condition I DON'T HAVE!
Pharmacists can do that if they believe it’s necessary. For example, Every diabetic patient should be put on a low dose statin regardless of their cholesterol levels. That’s just one example. Also the fact that the doctor agreed means that the pharmacist’s concern was right and that you do neet this medication.
