Push for annual limit on cold medication

INDIANAPOLIS -- Buying over the counter drugs could get a little more difficult.

Indiana lawmakers are pushing for tougher yearly limits on cold medicine.

The senate bill would limit your store-bought drugs to 8 months' worth. Anything over that would require a prescription.

It is part of a push to battle the state's meth problem.

"If somebody needs a pill a day for 12 months out of the year, you really should be under a doctor's care," said Carlin Yoder, Middlebury senator.

Indiana already has a limit on the amount of medication you can buy in a day or a month.

The state senate has already approved the vote. A house committee has not yet voted on the bill.
