Whether chemists are under any legal obligation to take back unused medicines?

 UrP on Apr 19, 2014
I recently purchased 6 pills of some medicine from a local chemist. I used 2 of them. I had no use of the other 4. So i went to return them back to the chemist. He told me that they don't take back medicines like that. I remember reading somewhere or somebody telling me that they should take back the medicines even if a single pill is returned. Is that true? Is there a law/policy/regulation which obligates the chemists to take back the unused pills?

No, medicines packs once tampered (completely or partly) are not returnable due to Safety reasons.However depending on the shopkeeper and medicine store.Medicines can be exchanged he has given you the wrong medicines if its still sealed as opened or used medicines are illegal to be sold
