Greater Access to Over The Counter Medication

The access to medications from your doctor may soon change, as the Therapeutic Goods Administration is looking to expand our access to ‘over the counter’ medications.

This means bypassing a prescription and going straight to the pharmacist for medications such as Viagra, the contraceptive pill and others for the treatment of nausea and migraines.

These changes could result in less trips to the doctor – saving valuable time and money.
