Canadians will have even easier access to Plan B
Canadians will have even easier access to Plan B.
A new National Drug Schedule change will move single-dose Plan B (levonorgestrel) to Schedule III. This means that pharmacies MAY choose to move it OVER-the-counter...to the same pharmacy self-selection area where other Schedule III medicines are sold.
Changes to the National Schedules are AUTOMATICALLY adopted by some provinces...Ontario, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Alberta, NS, PEI. Some provinces and territories will decide on their own whether or not to adopt the scheduling change.
