I took Sotalol for a short time recently and before I could use a new batch that had been delivered, I was changed back on to Flecainide by my EP. This morning I took the packets of Sotalol (120 tabs) out of the cupboard intending to take them back to the pharmacy, but knowing that they would go straight to be destroyed I just couldn't bring myself to do it! Such a waste!
You are probably all aware that any unused medication returned to the pharmacy has to be destroyed, even if you've never used any of it and it only arrived at your house that day, the same happens at all nursing homes. Once you have accepted the medication from the delivery man or pharmacy, it has to be destroyed if you return it.
I just can't believe what a waste of money this is and to be honest I wish I knew someone that had to pay for their prescription Sotalol that I could give the pills to, but then of course I can't do that as it's against the law to do so.
What are everyone's thoughts on this?
