ABSTRACT

To the Editor.—  I am writing in regard to my most recent issue of the American Pharmaceutical Association Newsletter dated June 17,1972 in which there was a reprint of a letter from the APHA Board of Trustees Executive Committee to you.Speaking on behalf of myself and many of my fellow pharmacists, I completely disagree with the recommendation of the APHA Board of Trustees Executive Committee that the antisubstitution laws be amended to permit the pharmacist to exercise drug product selection.If a physician has specified a particular brand product, whatever the reason might be, this is what the pharmacist should dispense.If a physician prescribes generically, it is the responsibility of the pharmacist to select his choice of product.I honestly believe that most pharmacists disagree with the position taken by the APHA Board of Trustees Executive Committee on this issue.
