    Yep that is exactly what happens every time a prescription drug becomes over the counter.
    The insurance no longer pays for it unless a person gets a script from the doctor for a name brand perscrition drug that only available with a prescription then it is covered by the insurance usually with a co pay.

    Is Plan B 'Unsafe'?

    And this is because it is supposed to be used as emergency contraceptive, and I am contending that this isn't how many are currently using it. As emergency contraceptive, sure it wouldn't likely cause any problems. But many are using it as a primary contraceptive, which means taking it around once every month or two or more often. That isn't emergency contraception, but main contraceptive.
    The link you posted said nothing about Plan B posing a risk of blood clots

    And yes, the first one does mention Plan B as being used when college students don't use their birth control properly, which is often.



    Pretty much talking about what I said. Oral contraceptives are considered inconvenient and Plan B is the backup used often. If college students have issues using their birth control properly, pretty sure high school students would have even more problems, if they are on it at all.
    It is dishonest to use an article that states that it is "often used" by a group of people in order to mislead people into thinking that it is "often used" by an individual

    No. It is evidence that at least some people are misusing it. It has never been studied whether it is being misused, and it should be. We don't have to stick our heads in the sand and pretend that this couldn't be a problem just because some want to push something through for political reasons. And that is what this is, a political push.

    The article presented no evidence of anyone misusing it.

    I'll say it one more time:

    I don't think any insurance company will pay for OTC drugs - ever.


    That was my original claim and I'll stick by it until proved different by actually seeing an insurance bill that has an OTC drug on it or reading from a very reliable source that such has occurred.

    Or you could read better.

    Any of the complications you can have [with birth control pills], you obviously could have with" Plan B, Wright said. She cites the need for a doctor to evaluate a woman's health and medical history before writing a prescription. Women should not take Plan B if they have undiagnosed, unusual vaginal bleeding or a sensitivity to progestin.
    One of the complications of birth control is blood clots. And it says that a woman should be evaluated prior to using Plan B.

    Considering the person you're responding to said "It has never been studied whether it is being misused, and it should be.", you get a gold sticker for effort for stating the same exact thing that she did.

    You're right. I missed that

    But the person saying that is not a doctor. There is no evidence that it can cause blood clots

    If it is an emergency contraceptive, but is being used often, than that would indicate misuse. How often would you think misuse is for Plan B? To me, taking it more often than once every couple of months is misuse. It is supposed to be emergency contraceptive, not primary. Emergency to me is definitely less than 6 times a year.
