[e-drug] Non-prescription sale of antibiotics (11)

E-DRUG:  Non-prescription sale of antibiotics (11)
----------------------------------------

Dear Majd Dameh,

In Brazil the legislation prohibits the sale of antibiotics without
prescription. However, antibiotics are commonly sold without prescription.
We have three retail groups for medicines: "over the counter", sold freely
without a medical prescription, "red label", sold against presentation of a
medical prescription, and "black label", where the pharmacist keeps a copy
of the prescription. Antibiotics are red label medicines and, in practice,
the sale of red label medicines is free. 

Best regards, Andréa
