I have always wondered something. You know how to buy certain thing like asthma puffers, excema cream, painkillers you have to give the chemist your details? Is this kept on some kind of central database or just on that particular chemists records?

DH always has to for his puffers and excema cream. And anything with codeine in in. They print it out and stick it on the box.

The only time I've ever given a chemist any details was my Medicare card for prescriptions. I've been given clorsig (?) for my ds (conjunctivitis) and they only ever put a label on it with directions, no name or anything! I've never been asked for details for OTC products.

I think I've been asked for ID for tablets containing pseudoephedrine only. I assume that would be a central register to make sure I'm not buying heaps from all different pharmacies to make pills? Never bought asthma stuff but haven't been asked for eczema cream, although maybe that's coz it's prescription they already have it on record that way?

In nsw there is no central registry.
Back in the day when I took far too much codeine, I would say get 2 boxes of mersyndol and they would take my license and put a label like a script on it.
Then 36 hours later I would go to another chemist and they would have no record of it
