OK - So this may sound this may sound like a stupid question. But I'm actually quite intrigued. Here in the United States, when getting a Prescription filled at a Brick and Mortar pharmacy - it's quite rare to actually receive pills in blister packs or their original packagiing. In general, the Pharmacy repackages the pills into pill bottles and prints up an information sheet on the medicine being sold. The same goes for OTC meds - while some come in blister packs (Zantac, Zyrtec, to name a few) - the majority come loosely packaged in bottles.
Here's my questoin -when ordering from IOPS it's quite common to receive pills in their oriignal packaging - IE in blister packs, in their original boxes.
Here's my question for all you PR members who live abroad. When you fill a script at a standard brick and mortar pharmacy is this how you receive your meds - are they typically in the manufacturer's blister packs and original boxes - or do they repackage them in pill bottles like they do in the US. The same for OTC meds - do they come in bottles or blister packs or in bottles like in the US.
Thanks for your helps guys- guess this is just idle curiousity on my part!
