Laxative regulation in shops

Heyy


Thiis maybe triggering if find talking about pills or medication triggering. Will try my best to keep within guidelines



So basically Wondering is if this annoys anyone else, Idk how to stop getting annoyed & how do people put their concerns out there about the law regulations or what not - ย when i am basically no one. And just ranting tbh


Because just really annoys me is the fact anyone can buy laxatives and they never ask for your ID or anything and there is no restrictions on them. In supermarkets. And some people may be more at risk of using them or just anyone use them too much by accident when not nessicarly and then get dependant on them. I just dont think there is enough restriction as it is actually really damaging to the health when misuse yet can buy it how many times you like - like youre buying anything else. And i dont mean should need a doctors prescrition every time you need laxatives as some may find that embarrassing - i just think it should be more like how paracetmol is and other meds are. And where they ask for your ID - but can see how that could be embarrassing for some but shouldnt be ย and id think it would pretent damaging behaviour esp in young people. And it just confuses me how it isnt more restrictedย 


For a few years i have read that they โ€œmayโ€ be restricted on the news but nothing ever seems to change when they say it.ย

    I used to get heartburn a lot so most of my weekly shops included heartburn tablets, and I can say I've never been asked for ID to buy them. Sometimes painkillers and antihistamines as well.

    The only time I had to show ID for medicine was once in a poundland for some cold and flu tablets.

    I'm not sure on the law on the amount of medicine you can buy at once, because I buy them as I need them and never buy big stashes at a time, but most shops I've seen have a policy of a limit on the amount of boxes of medicine you can buy at a time.

    I don't know if ID would help- anyone over 18 can abuse medication as well, and people under 18 can still need to buy medicine for themselves or for a housebound relative etc. for genuine reasons.

    But I get what you mean, and sometimes it's easy to blame the high availability and ease of access of some medicines for the misuse of it- but if it were heavily restricted then people who misuse it would find ways around it or move on to something else, whilst the majority of people who use medicines correctly are inconvenienced by the restriction.

    I hope you're doing okay,
    Aidan (:

    Did you pay for them at a self check out? Or by a staff member? Because when you scan most medications it comes up where they need to ask for your ID and sometimes they just choose not to for whatever reason. And even if did - probably wouldnt let you buy lots of it. As for painkillers youre not allowed more than two boxes or something - would be illegal if did( i think) And like even at self check out for laxaitives nothing comes up no matter how much you scan it. I think asking for ID would stop some people and staff member would start recongising their faces & how much people are buying. Obviousy it cant stop all misuse but it could mimise it.ย 

    And thank you for replying!

    And also younger people are at a higher risk of abusing them so ID would defintly help. I think:). Or they could get their parents to get them if they needed them

    I do agree that ID would be helpful but i just wonder about those who don't have any form of ID on them. would they need to get a parent or older sibling to buy them?

    It depends on the shop, home bargains doesn't like me buying even one box of feminex because of how young i look so need to use student ID but my antihistamines are fine.

    i defo think laxetives need the same rule, and i weren't aware you could actually buy some. i've always gone to my doctors and gotten something subtle like fybogel but i weren't aware you could, defo could do with being regulated in some way

    Problems there have been in the past with other things requiring ID is that not all shops do it anyway, fake ID is quite easily available, people get someone else to buy it for them etc. all whilst making people who are of correct age (but look younger than 25) jump through hoops and have to get and always carry ID with them just to buy stuff they need.

    Unlike alcohol or cigarettes, people need medication. Getting something youย want being made inconvenient or impossible is different to getting something youย need being made inconvenient or impossible.

    If I needed more antihistamines (just an example) but didn't have ID and staff doubted my age and left me leaving the shop empty handed, I would have to go to the doctors and get a prescription which would take up time from people with important work and cost me more money. In this hypothetical example there is nobody else who could get the tablets for me, since realistically people aren't always available or reliable and can't always do things for you because of their own lives and responsibilities.

    More needs to be done about medicine misuse, but maybe not further restrictions. In my opinion the reduction in misuse wouldn't be enough to warrant the inconvenience of everyone else, so maybe there are other ways of tackling this issue?

    Shaunie said:
    Did you pay for them at a self check out? Or by a staff member?ย 
    Both almost equally, but the one time I needed ID was at a self service checkout.

    What else would you do about the issue of misuse? And how do you think making ID a requirement could be implemented in a way that's effective at reducing misuse whilst not inconveniencing customers who need medicinal products?

    Hey thanks for repling Aidan and Laine

    and i agree. But tbh just because it might be hard for someone of the right age and may need it - to get it - shouldnt be a less of a reason โ€” than making people more at risk of health problems. As if people need it for actual reasons - theyd find ways to get it. Cause mis use cause some health risks are long lasting affects. Then wasting more money on the NHS for the affects

    But ive been struggling with laxative abuse for awhile and really do think if they ask me for ID that would put up a lot of barriers and make me not get it as would find embarrassing anyway and hard to find ways around it if it was made more obvious about behaviours like that with local shops ect. As people do actually remember faces and start to become aware of that sort of behaviour when they need that ID.ย 

    Though i dont blame the regulations and stuff but i still think is wrong either way

    and not sure why there is a such a difference in something like Painkillers compared to laxatives.ย

    I agree that staff could notice that somebody buys the same medication over and over (especially in small local shops with less staff and where staff would be more familiar with customers).

    But someone with an ongoing condition (like my heartburn issues, and my allergies) would buy medication they need over and over too. To staff there'd be no way to differentiate between the two, and it would be out of line and intrusive to ask the customer what the reason for needing the medication is. Besides if they did, the customer could lie, and as you said earlier having to produce a prescription would be too much because it's a waste of money and time.

    I also agree there are other ways to get medicine as you said, but the same applies to those who would intend to misuse medication too.

    From a different perspective, medication isn't the reason for medication misuse. A person who has misuse issue has their own reasons, and this is what needs to be addressed and changed. Remove the medication,ย  something else would become their addiction or crutch or their self-harm tool instead, because the reasons for an addiction or crutch or to self-harm would remain unless there was effective help available for them.

    Wish I could use agrees/hugs/insightful together because your posts would get them all from me.

    Take care (:

    Yeah and i guess soemtimes that is the case with addiction ans mis use - if its on purpose - that theyd find a different way. But a health professional actually told me things like painkillers are in a way so cant buy so much at once - because a lot of the times - if on purpose - its from impluse and once that is made hard and they get given more time to get it - the less their impluses are and the more calm they are ย and they are able to think more clearly and more about the affects of what they could be doing. - if it has been made hard they would wonder why. And time is important for calming people ย - ย If that makes sense. And once they make that affect & calmer wont even want different way or alternative - like self harm or something. Ive actually personally experineced that with something that made it harder to get cause of Id from something OTC. Then wouldnt get addicted in first place

    Agree with what you say about impulse and calming down over time, and I think medications that are dangerous to OD on should all have a cap on the amount someone could buy. Although sometimes an urge can build over time, everyone is different.

    My only objection is making medication more difficult for everyone to get for the benefit of a minority of people- in a Spock sort of way, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few? And that's why I'd be against needing ID for medication. A limit is different because you can still get some, but not more than anyone could reasonably need and I'd support that.

    If someone can't get medication in a shop there are unregulated sites online, as well as other places you can go, that will sell anybody any drugs without restriction. That stuff can be dangerous and not know what's actually in it, and making this alternative more favourable to safer, tested drugs in shops is a dangerous prospect. But as you say some people will find ways around like this, some people's urges will go down.

    Hey Shaunie!
    I've not made one before but it's pretty straightforward to do :)

    I do think there should be a regulation on buying them maybe limiting it like they do paracetamol? Laxatives should only be used for a few days before going to a doctor if they haven't worked so people don't need more than one anyway?
