Even before the pandemic, I was prescribed too much medication and tried to return it in new and unopened condition and was told no.

I am just keeping it now as it doesn't expire and who knows, one day it may come in useful.
I returned once Tossamin to a pharmacy without problem. A year later I found out it is sold only with the proof of doc's prescription. Since then, I have opted only for teas and ginger. And proactively citrus juice and fruits.

Re: Worst Corona excuse

A few years back my diabetaloge changed my basal (long duration) Insulin. I had just restocked so I had four unopened boxes of five pens of the old stuff with an expiry date well into the future.

She asked me if I had preserved the cold chain, which I had, so told me to bring it in and she would put it into her fridge. She said she knew of a number of patients that were struggling with the cost of insulin and she would ensure it got put to good use.

But donít tell anyone, it isnít suppose to happen.

No one should be deprived of Insulin just because they canít afford it.

Back home is payed by the state health insurance funds (everything, not just Insulin), so everyone has access to it. We're poor, but not that poor apparently.
