    Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) is leading a new push to allow women to buy birth control without a prescription, hoping to deliver on one of the biggest promises of his freshman Senate campaign last year.A half-dozen Senate Republicans have signed onto Gardner’s bill, which would require drug companies that sell contraceptives to file an application to sell their products over the counter. “Most other drugs with such a long history of safe and routine use are available for purchase over the counter, and contraception should join them,” Gardner wrote in a statement. He said his bill would benefit women in...

Guest Post by Oxford Analytica Over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives, particularly credit default swaps (CDSs), were faulted as a cause of the credit crunch, most prominently in a June 17 speech by US President Barack Obama announcing his administration’s plan for financial reform. This led to calls in the United States and elsewhere to regulate the CDS market. Regulatory outlook.

    The rise of state-owned oil companies and their growing appetite for everything from drilling equipment to seismic surveys will create opportunities for oil-field-services firms, panelists said this week at the Offshore Technology Conference. But doing business with national oil companies also presents complex challenges that may force the services firms — as well as traditional oil companies — to evolve if they want to participate in the growth.

    The Food and Drug Administration approved over-the-counter sales of the "morning-after pill" on Thursday, but only for girls over the age of 18. The hormone pill, until now available only with a prescription, prevents implantation of a fertilized egg if it is taken within a few days of unprotected intercourse. Easier access to the drug known as Plan B has drawn strong opposition from conservative groups, who say it will end up in the hands of young girls, regardless of what the rules say. Focus on the Family is among the many groups that have argued against over-the-counter sales of...

    CHICAGO - Despite the billions of dollars spent every year in this country on over-the-counter cough syrups, most such medicines do little if anything to relieve coughs, the nation's chest physicians say. Over-the-counter cough syrups generally contain drugs in too low a dose to be effective, or contain combinations of drugs that have never been proven to treat coughs, said Dr. Richard Irwin, chairman of a cough guidelines committee for the American College of Chest Physicians. Drugstore shelves are crowded with cough syrups promising speedy, often non-drowsy relief without a prescription. But "the best studies that we have to date...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - A maker of morning-after birth control asked the government Thursday to reconsider allowing over-the-counter sales of the pills _ but only for women 16 and older. The Food and Drug Administration in May rejected nonprescription sales of emergency contraception, overruling its own scientific advisers, who had overwhelmingly called easier access to morning-after pills a safe way to prevent thousands of abortions. The FDA argued that its decision reflected concern about how young teenagers might use the pills. Agency officials pledged to reconsider if manufacturer Barr Laboratories either provided data on young teens' use _ or proposed a...

"It's out there, and you know kids do it," Ms. Quist said. "It's cheap, accessible and it's not illegal if kids get caught. And it usually goes unnoticed until a kid takes too much or combines it with something to get a horrible reaction and overdoses." Cough and cold medications containing dextromethorphan, or DXM, are becoming increasingly popular among teenagers and young adults looking for a cheap...

    The arrival of an over-the-counter morning-after pill in American drugstores has been delayed by a disappointing, politically motivated decision by the Food and Drug Administration. Wider availability of the pill would make it easier to avert unwanted pregnancies and reduce the rate of abortions. But once again, the Bush administration seems determined to make things difficult for women in America. It's ironic, since President Bush has included more women in his innermost circle of advisers than any prior chief executive. Condoleezza Rice, the administration's most prominent female presence, has presided as national security adviser while a wholesale assault has taken...

Pro-life groups oppose the use of the drug because it is dangerous for women and can sometimes cause abortions. The FDA made its decision based on concerns about the effects of the drug on teenagers. However, it left the door open to allowing the drugs to be sold to adults. The agency also said it would reconsider its decision if Barr Laboratories, maker of the...

    For unwary consumers, buying medicine for a cold could soon cause a headache. North Carolina is moving to join a growing number of states cracking down on methamphetamine dealers by limiting sales of cold tablets, putting them behind counters, or training store clerks to spot "suspicious" shoppers and report them to the police. Drug dealers hoard familiar remedies such as Sudafed for their active ingredients. A 48-tablet pack of Sudafed yields about .03 of an ounce of methamphetamine worth about $72 on the street, according to police. Federal law restricts the purchase of medicines with the active ingredients ephedrine or...

"Let's face facts: Accidents happen," said Vivian M.

The concept, of course, is not new.

In a Tuesday hearing, the FDA heard advice from a panel of 28 gynecologists and pharmacists on whether the agency should approve the over-the-counter (OTC) sale of Plan B, a morning-after pill that can prevent pregnancy if taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex. Since Plan B is most effective if taken within 24 hours, its proponents contend that it should be...

    WASHINGTON — Medical and women's groups are asking the government to allow a morning-after pill to sell without a prescription, saying easier access could prevent more than a million unplanned pregnancies and hundreds of thousands of abortions every year. If fertilization already has occurred, it prevents the egg from implanting into the uterus, the medical definition of pregnancy. If a woman already had become pregnant, emergency contraception would have no effect. So it hasn't proved nearly as contentious as RU-486, the abortion pill.

But unlike other more ordinary hearings for drugs like allergy medications to be shifted from prescriptions, this hearing has become entangled in the thorny politics of abortion, raising questions of when a pregnancy begins and who decides. If approved, the drug would be the first emergency contraceptive sold over the counter. Known as Plan B — when Plan A, for contraception, fails or is...
