To the waste of medication to go up nine organizations Tuesday their signature on the ‘Agreement contains prescriptieregeling’. One of the measures is that patients that a new drug would use this for up to fifteen days to reflect, to see if the drug works.

The reason for the agreement are the figures of the Meldpunt Waste. There were more than twenty thousand of reports of drugs that are thrown away.

Another measure is that medications that more than 1,000 euros per month cost for the first half of a month shall be provided. And in the case of intensive care at home, determines the patient in consultation with health care providers what medications may or may not be necessary.

“It is a sin, if medications are unused, discarded, sure if that smarter prescribing can be avoided,” according to minister Edith Schippers of public Health.
