Methods patients use to purchase over-the-counter medicines for misuse


What training do we provide pharmacists and their teams to deal with this? - in my experience very little and in terms of guidance equally little with the only action being to refuse the sale. This said if pharmacy teams were to offer more support where would they then refer such a patient too? These patients certainly don't fit with the clients attending drug addiction services?
