There are other drugs that are in these plastic containers, and sometimes whenever we buy these kinds of drugs, especially supplements and prescripted medicines, we don’t really buy or need the whole container, we would opt to buy them in smaller number. There are still drugstores that packages their medicines this way. There are two problems that I see in this. One is you get your medicines exposed to pollutants along the way, and two it’s kind of slow.
Whenever the drugs gets repackaged, pharmacists would get the plastic containers, open some out, and use ziplocks. To me, that’s just unsanitary. I know what you’re thinking. You think that it’s a little bit over acting and overthinking on this process, but let me give you an example. If a container contains at least five hundred tablets, and people would by five to ten pieces, then the containers would be opened somewhere between fifty to a hundred times, meaning to say that the tablets get exposed fifty to a hundred times. That’s something to ponder on. Always make sure that the drugs that you are getting are safe and clean to ingest simply by just observing on the process of how they repackage the drug, as well as what materials were used by the pharmacists to get them.
I have always been conscious about my time, wherein I want to be served the fastest way possible, especially if time does not have anything to do with the quality of what I’m getting. There are sachet packaging machines that pharmaceutical stores can purchase in the market already. These machines provides aquickerway to pack your medicines. These machines are also airtight shut so you are guaranteed that your drugs are free from exposure. Drugstores can easily put up pharmacy dispensing systems wherein customers can get their drugs from the store and have it sealed properly with only few touches of a button. You could just walk right in, punch it up, and leave in less than five minutes.
Drugstore business and company owners’ main concern should revolve around providing their customers with the safest drug they can offer, to ensure that the drugs being handed to them were properly stored and were not repackaged to a point that it detriments the quality of the drug. Having technologies that elmintaes any doubt from customers is a big plus to them because business owners seek to provide better service to them through having upgrades.
