Paracetamol (update)

24 Jan

Anul trecut am scris despre leacul universal al olandezilor: paracetamolul. Vezi aici articolul de atunci.

De la stiri am aflat de curand ca s-au luat masuri in privinta vanzarii de paracetamol, in urma constatarii unei cresteri a cazurilor de intoxicare cu paracetamol: in 2011 s-au inregistrat 2088 la adulti si 674 la copii. De asemenea, vanzarile au crescut in ultimii ani.

Astfel, din 10 ianuarie 2013 este interzisa vanzarea cutiilor cu mai mult de 50 de tablete in magazine. Numai farmaciile le vor mai putea vinde.

Marea surpriza, sau dimpotriva, urmeaza acum: vanzarea mai multor cutii cu cate 50 de tablete ramane libera. Insa cu o conditie: cumparatorul va fi intrebat de catre vanzator care este motivul pentru care cumpara atata paracetamol.

Parerea mea: ori problema nu e cu adevarat o problema, ori nu se indrazneste luarea unei masuri mai drastice, de frica unui protest in masa.

*********************************************************************************************************************************

Last year I wrote about the universal remedy of the Dutch: paracetamol (panadol). Read that here.

On the news I heard that measures have been taken concerning the sales of paracetamol, as the cases of intoxication caused by the use of too much paracetamol have become more frequent: in 2011 there were 2088 adults and 674 children affected. Also, the sales went up in the last years.

Therefore, starting January 10th 2013 boxes containing more than 50 pills may only be sold in pharmacies.

The big surprise, or not quite, is this: people can still buy several boxes of 50 pills each in the drugstores, with one condition: one will be asked what the reason of this purchase is.

In my opinion: either this is not a real problem, or the authorities lack the courage of taking a more severe measure, fearing a mass protest.

    Eu ti-am descoperit blogul de cateva zile si il citesc cu incantare. Imi place tonul tau usor ironic, iar posturile cu paracetamolul sunt chiar haioase!
    Mai am mult de recuperat, dar nu ma las, o sa citesc cat pot de mult. 🙂
    Numai bine!
