This is the news: In England, possible antibiotics to be sold over the counter, to treat CHLAMYDIA!
This is the story form http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2008/aug/06/health
Oral antibiotics are to be made available for the first time without doctor's prescription under guidelines approved yesterday by the medicines regulator.
A pill to treat chlamydia, the most commonly diagnosed sexually transmitted infection, will become available for purchase in pharmacies across England later this year.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency said the azithromycin pill, which will be called Clamelle, will go on sale to people aged 16 years and over if they have tested positive for the infection, but have no symptoms. It will also be available to their sexual partners.
Dr June Raine, the agency's director of vigilance and risk management, said, "Up to 70% of people who have chlamydia have no symptoms ... They are at huge risk of serious long-term health complications, including infertility and ectopic pregnancy."
Might be a good beginning!
