Consumer Group Advances Alternative to Prescription Mandate
Date:10/7/2011

ative effort between lawmakers, law enforcement personnel, the healthcare community, the pharmaceutical industry, and local retailers to protect the rights of citizens to purchase a safe and effective product.

"CHPA remains opposed to the proposed prescription mandate for legal, FDA-approved, cold and allergy medicines containing pseudoephedrine," said Gutierrez.  "We believe the facts are clear on why this is the wrong solution.  Requiring a prescription for these common, over-the-counter medicines would further tax an already overstretched healthcare system, increase costs, and impose difficult burdens on law-abiding consumers."

Many in Kentucky, including law enforcement agree that requiring a doctor's prescription for PSE is not the right solution.  

"Kentucky, like many other states, continues to struggle with a serious meth problem, but as a 38-year veteran of law enforcement I do not believe that making common cold medicines containing pseudoephedrine available only by prescription is the right solution," said Daviess County, Kentucky Sheriff Keith Cain.  "At best, this measure will only obscure the problem without addressing the root cause – criminal drug makers and addicts.  As another on the front line of the meth war, I think it is particularly important that we use our best resources to identify the criminals.  In my opinion a prescription mandate will not help us win the war on meth; it will only shift the battlefield."

Kentucky medical professionals also disagree with the prescription mandate and point to several key facts that illustrate why it is the wrong solution.

"Requiring a doctor's prescription for cold medicines containing pseudoephedrine is simply not the answer to Kentucky's meth problem," said Dr. Donald Neel, an Owensboro pediatrician and community activist.  "It won't work.  It will however cause serious unintended consequences, including a dramatic increase
