        hi crayon,

        i used to be attached to a pharmaceutical company, but i am trained as a chemist. been around the manufacturing plant, so i do see some of the technicians around. most of the time they require shift work as the plant operates 24hours. it can be tiring for gals as the work requires some valve operation and sample collection sometimes. it can be fun if you are interested. but since what you inquire about is a drug dispensing job, probably it is not so applicable, as these technicians require some sort of engineering background. i believe you have pharmacy qualifications?

            Drug dispensing can be done by pharmacists only in pharmacy.

            Pharmacology is different from Pharmacy...studying pharmacology do not make you a pharmacist =) Pharmacology involve studying the drugs kinetics and mechanism in human's body while pharmacy include studying the chemical properties of all the drugs as well. =)
