Request for Comments and Announcement of Workshop on Pet Medications Issues, Project No. P121201

While I believe consumers should have the right to take their medication script to whichever retailer they so choose, mandating that we write out a script for each drug the request will add a significant amount of time and paper to each case--especially considering that many of our patients who already take their scripts elsewhere shop directly online, so that having a paper script is not required: the online companies fax to us (creating more paper waste), which we then sign and fax back to them. Ultimately, since we will end up having to do this anyway, writing the script out ends up being double the paperwork.
