Re: Diet pills

Wasn't this drug at the origin of a massive lawsuit recently? It seems to have massive - and sometimes lethal - side effects that were though negligible by the pharma.

I think she means spell checker. ( as in autocorrect)

Amber you could have saved yourself a lot of grief on here if you just said 'what is glucophage called in Switzerland and is it available over the counter here or only on prescription'. In you original post.

Re: Diet pills

Metformin is not available without prescription in the UK, nor here, for good reasons.

Try setting the autocorrect to English - it might help.

Re: Diet pills

You can't buy Metformin over the counter in the uk at all without a prescription, that is for sure.

Re: Diet pills

Anyway, back to the plot:

In act one Amber came on the scene asking to get "diet" pills. It turns out that Amber has diabetes (type 2 in fact - 90% of cases are believed to be caused by obesity).

In scene 2 we find out that Amber doesn't know the name of the drug she was told to buy by her doctor. (I was expecting a thumping bass line at this point and an image of the Thames flashing up).

In scene 3 Amber says she actually does know the active ingredient.

Act 2 - I am hoping this will reveal whether Amber is a fatty chub chub looking to help curb her cake addiction OR a silly teenage girl looking to dabble in anorexia.

Over to you Amber.

No, it's not. "Over the counter" means that you go into a chemist's, point at what you want (or take it off a shelf), take it up to the counter and pay for it (after being asked a lot of rather inane questions by the assistant).

When you take a prescription to be filled at the chemist's, you are not buying "over the counter". You are getting a prescription filled and paying a subsidised fee for it.

It is not the same thing at all.

An awful lot of confusion has been caused by mixing up these two, completely different, processes.
