Just say no to drug (shortage)s


Visiting a hospital in another corner of the world there was in the doctor's office a drawer filled with pills. All the colours of the rainbow, old new, certainly not stored in optimum conditions. These could be searched through to find one suitable for the current patient. I don't know that the available pill informed the diagnosis, 'this week we will have epilepsy as we have antiepilleptics'; 'This week we are seeing a lot of hayfever as we have antihistamines'.
