My derm does not understand why the makers of Nicomide chose to make their product require a prescription. It is just a vitamin/mineral combination.
If your derm really said this then maybe you need a new doctor! Obviously every drug company wishes their products were sold OTC, it is the FDA that determines whether they require a prescription.
But agreed, it is stupid that any topical skin cream requires a prescription.

But in most cases, the drug companies definitely can make more money when something is non-prescription, its the doctors who are getting rich off prescriptions!
Most people here wouldn't even go to a dermatologist if all this stuff was available to try OTC, its not like the derms ever have any magic knowledge anyway.
My derm didn't even know there was such a thing as niacinimide gel, nevermind the study years ago showing it to be more effective than cleocin, a favorite among derms which has much more harmful side effects.
You would think that when they are getting so rich off us they would at least do their research, but not many do.
