yea. many employers will offer tylenol/advil doses as a courtesy. sometimes pepcid or benedryl and they stock it in the 1st aid box. as far as non control prescriptions, its possible. at the vet clinic I work at, we have prescription strength ibuprofen's available for everyday use....we all take one if we need one (or 2)... but all the vets are docs, and can write their own prescriptions. I suppose on non control items, pharmacies can sell more pills at a time. no limit. We usually get a bottle of 800 and have to replace that bottle every 5 or 6 months.

Pharmaceutical companies do it all the time. Most will give providers the same drugs you can get at the pharmacy but will put on a different National Drug Code so the provider can charge a MUCH higher price to your insurance companies which cause your rates to go up. These medications are normally call "Re-packaged" drugs and are not paid by Medicare or Medicaid.

I am assuming you are talking about non-controlled prescription drugs. It doesn't matter with OTCs like tylenol, ibuprofen, etc. You can do it with your regular pharmacy license as long as it does not exceed 5% of your total sales. After that, you'll need a distributor's license.The physician's office can buy directly from a wholesaler; although, they won't get good pricing.
