Upcoming Paracetamol Restrictions

Thanks @Glenn61 but that makes me even more cynical with such as ‘be required to be in blister packaging’. That raises prices for packaging as well as creates waste. How many people bent on self harm might be stopped by opening blister packs? True, it might give them a few extra minutes to think about what they are doing?

My basis for being irritated about the pack mandate is that the TGA has no interest in long term meds being randomly packaged and sold in either 30s or 28s because it seems all too hard to mandate one or the other. Each year the GP has to issue an extra script for those in 28s to get multiple meds in sync and ease of management yet a speculative ‘maybe’ seems to get attention.
