  • I understand the problem a lack of inspectors is posing. What I absolutely do not understand, is the fact that LACKING regular inspections, people are such assholes and morons. You should not only clean your fucking kitchen or laboratory or store the food and drugs in a non-moronic way, because you fear an inspector popping in. But by all means, if it is necessary, then at least don't just slap them on their hands, take away their license forever. Those pills have no reason to be in the bathroom, there is no excuse for this. This is not one slight oversight, this is deliberate and should be treated as such.

  • i worked for an animal pharmacy and it’s true-there’s pretty much no option for birds other than getting drugs from a compounding pharmacy. another thing i’ve needed for my own cat is antiviral medication but in eye drop form. there’s no other way to get them. the other problem with animal drugs is that pharmacies aren’t technically supposed to give owners compounded medications to take home. as you can imagine, this is really hard when a bird is on a compounded oral antibiotic which they need and can’t wait for the owner to get in the mail whenever the pharmacy (which might be across the country) can make the drug. as a result, most vets have no choice but to send home compounded drugs anyway.

And come up with these hilarious names to put on prescriptions.

  • I still enjoy the show for its entertainment value, but it can't be trusted when it comes to factual reporting. I remember them making quite a few false claims in the "Medical Bias" episode that really shocked me. Saying that there "obviously aren't" physical differences between the races is not only ignorant, but dangerous. I thought we could trust this show, but clearly we can't. And while some people might say, "But they only made that one mistake". Maybe, that we know of. That's the thing with reporting. Either you can trust them completely, or not at all. If they lied/misinformed to you once, there's no way tell if they are doing it about other things as well. If a GOOD journalist makes a mistake, they print a redaction to make sure everyone knows. But this show has made mistakes and never addresses them.

  • I have used compound pharmacies for each of my pregnancies to help prevent having a miscarriage. I have issues with progesterone. The typical progesterone hormone pill was not strong enough. So i had to have an injected form every day till i reached 17 weeks. This could only be made in compound pharmacies. It was a God send and i now have 4 beautiful kids( including a set of twins). So, compound pharmacies can be life saver. So, yes there should be oversight but they are definitely needed.
