The Food and Drug Administration is considering creation of a behind-the-counter (BTC) class of drugs that would require only a pharmacists approval for distribution to patients. It is a controversial idea, with pharmacists favoring it and doctors saying it would be unsafe for patients. Insurers are caught in the middle.. In a letter to the FDA dated April 25, 2008, Americas Health Insurance Plans took a stand against the idea. The trade organization raises concerns about coverage and access, and warns of the law of unintended consequences.. "We believe there is insufficient evidence that BTC would provide significant benefits over the current over-the-counter system. AHIP cannot endorse FDA development of a BTC status at this time…. If BTC drugs are not covered, patients could choose to pay for BTC drugs out-of-pocket, find the cost prohibitive, and not continue therapy, or switch back to alternative prescription drugs that are covered under their pharmacy benefit plan.". AHIP recommended ...

Nasal congestion is a prominent symptom of several common conditions. Nasal decongestants provide symptomatic relief of nasal congestion due to allergies or the common cold. They shrink nasal mucosa through their vasoconstrictor effects. The only two oral ingredients currently available are pseudoephedrine and phenylephrine. Pseudoephedrine sales are limited to pharmacist-only, behind-the-counter status. Although this move was made solely to limit the illicit use of pseudoephedrine in the manufacture of methamphetamine, it offered pharmacists an opportunity to question all potential pseudoephedrine buyers about contraindicated conditions such as heart disease and high blood pressure. Pharmacists should thereby counsel patients with these conditions not to use the ingredient unless a physician has advised them to do so.2,3 Most topical nasal decongestants (e.g., oxymetazoline, phenylephrine, and naphazoline) also carry the warning against use by patients with heart disease and high blood ...
