The Ministry of Health has banned 444 drug uses by commonly used people including cough fever and diabetes. These include 6,000 branded drugs that can no longer be manufactured or sold.
The ban was imposed on the Drugs Controller's website on Friday night after the Supreme Court stayed the cases in various high courts against the ban on March 10 last year. Along with paracetamol, caffeine and amoxicillin, various compounds are forbidding drugs that are harmful to health.
The study committee of the study reviewed a number of drugs that combine various chemicals into harmful health. These drugs are misused. The committee pointed out that some crab syrups are used as heroin.
Considering that some drugs with three compounds can be made healthier for people with diabetes. The decision was taken after examining 6,000 compounds. But several High Courts stayed the first banning order, saying that the arguments of drug companies were not considered. The workforce has been sold in the sector for the past one year.
The study was conducted by a six-member committee led by Vice Chancellor Chandrakant Kokkat University of Karnataka University of Calcutta. In the report, 963 drug manufacturers in India are dangerous. Based on this, 344 drug compounds were banned for March 2016. Before that, 95 compounds were banned. The ban was extended to five items last June. But it did not take effect because the court stayed.
Following is a brief list of combinations banned by the union government:
- Aceclofenac, Paracetamol, and Rabeprazole
- Diclofenac, Tramadol, and Chlorzoxazone
- Nimesulide and Diclofenac
- Dicyclomine, Paracetamol and Domperidone
- Nimesulide, Cetirizine, and Caffeine
- Nimesulide and Paracetamol dispersible tablets
- Nimesulide and Tizanidine
- Paracetamol, Phenylephrine, and Caffeine
- Paracetamol, Cetirizine, and Caffeine
- Diclofenac, Tramadol, and Paracetamol
Nimesulide is one of the drugs that have been banned. Health experts have been concerned for long about its continued usage in India in spite of the fact that in majority of the developed countries this medicine has been banned. Fixed drug combinations have been growing at an exponential rate these days in the Indian pharmaceutical market and there are several reasons for the same. First of all, companies are always on the lookout for fresher products and they want to escape the brunt of price control measures as well. This is the reason that companies these days are creating combinations of various ingredients and then marketing them as new medicines.
