EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) - An 87-year-old San Diego County psychiatrist has surrendered his medical license after telling investigators he sold leftover prescription drugs to low-income patients.
Dr. Wayne A. Funk of El Cajon says he kept old bottles in a basket so he could offer cheaper medication to people who could not pay full price.
The Medical Board of California says Funk surrendered his license last week.
Federal drug enforcement agents inspected Funk's office in January 2008 and found several recycled drugs typically prescribed to treat pain, anxiety and insomnia.
The medical board also investigated Funk after a doctor complained that Funk was excessively prescribing the anti-anxiety drug Xanax to a patient.
Funk was licensed to practice in California in 1954.
