I note the prescription medicine for migraine can now be bought in chemists over the counter, and there are plans to make more medicines available over the counter without prescription! 

What happens to those with Medical Cards, if they need these tablets?  Will these drugs over the counter be deleted from prescription medicines on Medical Card, and Medical Card holders expected to fund the cost if needed?  Is this another way of cutting costs on Medical Cards and expecting those who can ill afford to pay for their medicine?
