An attempt to make the allergy medicine bill much stricter was voted down at the Statehouse Thursday.
The Senate has passed a bill restricting access to drugs containing ephedrine and pseudoephedrine.
The Senate-passed bill would restrict Hoosiers to an eight-month supply over the counter before they would have to go to their doctor for a prescription, but since those purchases are tracked by driver's licenses, children's drugs are counted on their parents' records, meaning some families could hit the limit long before eight months.
The proposed amendment would cut the allowed supply to six months.
There are those that take these medications on a regular basis but some lawmakers say that those people are already under a doctor’s care.
The amendment was defeated in a voice vote, in which it appeared only two or three members voted for the lower limit.
The House is expected to cast a final vote on the drug bill next week.
