Thank you for your detailed explanation. My entire point was on the assumption that your drug authority would do its job properly. If they are corrupt and allowing substandard medicines, then I agree with your argument.Well sir I have been in this business long enough to know some very very scary things. Are you talking about the same drug authority which approved such a combination of drugs to be sold as tablets which proved fatally poisoning the cardiac patients. Only when handful of people died in PIC lahore that authority came into its senses.
Another thing good and reputed companies give very little incentives. And they collect their bill when they deliver medicine.
But small companies they not only give you huge benefits but also deliver medicine and either collect bill after some time or when that medicine is sold.
And the million dollar question is about the effectiveness of that medicine. I can explain it by citing one incident. When I was in 2nd yr of mbbs in one of the most reputable Hospitals my father had to under go a surgery. As I knew most of the doctors and my fathers students were in final year also. They told me that your father is a govt employ so his med is on the hospital they have to provide it free of cost. But plz apart of pain killer injections get every med yourself as none of the antibiotics provided by Govt work as they should. So buy your medicine.
Not all companies are this bad but most of them are. Take Sami. It is a good standard company and also economical one.
Ceftriaxone inj is sold as Rocephin at a cost of 900 + and same inj by Sami is sold as Oxidil for some 330.
So the core point is cleaning the market of substandard medicine.
