Complementary medicines: A 4.2 billion dollar question

On a busy shopping strip on Sydney’s north shore lies a pharmacy where you won’t find a homeopathic product for sale.

The owner, Nick Logan, simply refuses to stock them.

“They’re proven beyond a shadow of a doubt not to work and my customers expect me to not stock bogus products,” says Mr Logan, who was named PSA Pharmacist of the Year in 2009.

“They think I have more integrity than that.”

The question over whether pharmacies should stock products that lack robust evidence is in this spotlight once again.
