MOHW seems to consider regrouping OTC drugs

The Ministry of Health and Welfare (MOHW) recently responded to the request that traditional pharmacists should be punished for selling over-the-counter (OTC) drugs by revising pharmacy laws.

The MOHW said it is inappropriate to discuss that issue only, pointing that OTC drugs should be reclassified to clarify which OTC drugs belongs to traditional pharmacists, and the practice of traditional pharmacists should be redefined first.

It seems that the MOHW considers regrouping OTC drugs for traditional pharmacists, instead of punishing them for selling OTC drugs.

The MOHW also responded to the request that traditional pharmacists should wear their own lab coats, by saying that it is an excessive regulation because their licenses are clearly different by current pharmacy laws.
