E-DRUG: Re: Great Britain - Original pack dispensing delayed again

Canada also dispenses from bulk stock, except for a few things like birth
control pills.  As I understand it the argument for continuing to dispense
this way is that it may control wastage i.e. if the physician prescribes a
10 day course of something, but the medication comes in a 7-day package
then two 7-day packages would have to be used and 4 days of drug would be
wasted.
