Dr. Patrick Ojo’s “Pharmacy in Bondage” is an intriguing work that sheds light on one of medicine’s often overlooked areas. The book offers insights into the complicated balancing act performed by pharmacists as they seek to dispense their expertise for the maximum benefit of patients/mankind by drawing on years of personal and professional experience.

This book should be read because it has various hidden gems and significant ideas. Pharmacists are an underappreciated and frequently overlooked component of medicine, although their contribution to the advancement of human health is tremendous. The book covers the entire history of the pharmacy profession, including its rise in popularity, practices, suppression into a forgotten part of medicine, and the challenges pharmacists confront in fully utilizing their knowledge to benefit patients’ health and the healthcare business.

Pharmacy as a branch of medicine is a critical issue when it comes to patients’ life, safety, delivery of optimal health outcomes, and lowering overall healthcare costs. Here’s what the writer had to say about the writing experience and his inspiration to start the project in the first place.

“—We all know that Anesthetics is a branch of medicine but it is an infinitesimal part of pharmacy that is not. The author considered Anesthetics as pharmacy’s baby and it doesn’t sound reasonable to hold parent(s) in bondage while the baby/child is free. — We all know that we have specialists catering to every aspect of our lives including Mouth (Dentists), Eye (Optometrists/Ophthalmologists), Skin (Dermatologists), Electricity (Electrical Engineers), News (Journalists), and others; but the drugs (poisons) we pumped into our body daily have none. This situation has resulted in prescriptive authority being used not only as a medical and political football, played and won by those who know how to dribble and win the game in medicine but throwing pills (medications) at patients like candy bars by some in the medical field. The resultant consequence of this is that the drug problem in our country, the US is the 4th to 6th leading cause of death.

“— 1 out of every 25 courses in school qualifies Certified Nurse Practitioners (CNP) with no residence to prescribe drugs and 7 out of 10 courses in school do not qualify clinical pharmacists to do the same thing. Prescriptions written by clinical pharmacists are better than others in the medical field. The first Edition leads to the introduction of the H.R. 5780 Bill – Medicare Clinical Pharmacist Practitioner Services Coverage Act of 2008 in the 110th US Congress. Former Governor of Kansas State/Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Hollywood Book Review, and others have acknowledged “Pharmacy in Bondage” as a progressive book leading pharmacy in the right direction to the final destination. The author took American Medical Association (AMA) and American Board of Medical Specialty (ABMS) to court over pharmacy profession’s pathetic condition.”
