Do you really know the person beside you in the pharmacy checkout? And by “know,” we mean, “Could you pick them out of a lineup later if necessary?”

I want a new drug

Could a state proposal to make pseudoephedrine prescription-only crack down on meth production?


News

Kim Mizar-Stem
Efforts to combat methamphetamine abuse in Oklahoma already have resulted in restrictions on the sale of pseudoephedrine, a chief ingredient in meth. Now, some in the state law enforcement community are hoping to take that battle a step further by making the medicine a Schedule III drug.

Meth-odology

Speaking of drugs, it looks like the state Legislature won’t be making your decongestant of choice prescription-only anytime soon. A state House panel last week rejected a measure to require a prescription for pseudoephedrine, despite the law enforcement community rallying in support of the bill.

Legislators caved to drug companies


Letters to the Editor

Nancy Roche
Shame on you, Oklahoma legislators, for caving in to the pharmaceutical companies’ lobbying to keep pseudoephedrine over the counter and not make it by prescription only. I wonder how many lunches they bought you and your staff, and how many vacations they promised you and your families?

An allergy sufferer gives thanks


Letters to the Editor

Kasey Steffen
I recently read reports in The Oklahoman about the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America’s 2012 Fall Allergy Capitals rankings. Every fall and spring, AAFA ranks the cities with the toughest allergy seasons.

Allergy sufferers give thanks


Letters to the Editor

Carmen Johnson
I applaud our state representatives for rejecting legislation that would have blocked everyday, law-abiding citizens’ affordable access to cold and allergy medicines containing pseudoephedrine. Not long ago, state legislators were considering implementing burdensome legislation to require a doctor’s prescription for over-the-counter cold and allergy medicines that many Oklahomans, myself included, depend on.
