Meijer, a midwestern store like Target has just implemented a new program that allows patients with a doctor's prescription to get 14 days of free antibiotics. I am in Ohio, and I saw a posting at my local store about this program. There is not much information available...I'm not sure if this is a limited time deal or something...it does not appear to be, from the press release listed on the website.
Any thoughts on whether this a good thing or bad thing? Could this cause more people to push their doctors for antibiotics, since patients know they won't have to pay for them....leading to more antibiotic-resistance?
