Background information

Amendment no.1 moved by Deputy Catherine Murphy:

In page 10, between lines 34 and 35, to insert the following:
“non-interchangeable medicinal product” means a medicinal product which is not interchangeable with any other medicinal product for prescription purposes in the opinion of the Irish Medicines Board in accordance with the provisions of section 5 of this Act;”

Deputy Murphy agrees that the substitution of generic drugs with cheaper but equivalent medicine is long overdue but it may be counter-productive in some areas and proposes that the treatment of epilepsy is one such area, on the grounds that many people with epilepsy have not seen a consultant and are managed by a general practitioner who may not have the range of knowledge of a specialist in the field.
