Re: [IP] Popping Humalog


Just wanted to clarify, while it may be federal law that syringes are 
considered over the counter, state laws may override the federal law if the 
state law is more stringent.  Thus, some states may recognize that federal 
law does not require a prescription but the state law may require a 
prescription and that would override the federal law.  In pharmacy, whichever 
law is more stringent will take priority.  Not trying to be hard to get along 
with, just trying to explain how it works!

Thus, while federal law allows syringes to be bought without a prescription, 
Pa state pharmacy laws required one, so in Pa  you have to have a 
prescription for the syringes.
