Public Health still mulling restrictions on some drugs
Santo Domingo.- Public Health minister Altagracia Guzman on Wed. said the plan to regulate the sale of medicines isn’t finished yet and various sectors will participate in the discussion.
She said industry and pharmacies have been consulted in the plan’s first phase. “We are seeing the plan that is a process in which various sectors will participate, the media being a key ally in it.”
Guzman’s statement comes in the heels of questions from the Dominican Pharmaceutical Industries (Infadomi), that the list of over-the-counter medicines released in June included some that have since been withdrawn, such as antibiotics, anti-flu, analgesics and “boner pills.”
