    Killer pills: Banned but available


    <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100&#37;" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD></TD></TR><TR><TD vAlign=top align=left width="91%"><!-- description --><TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD class=bigtext>ARE YOU AN international pharmaceutical company, finding a place for your banned drugs to recover from your losses? Don’t worry, we have got the solution — come to India!

    Well it does not need a Ripley’s Believe it or Not show to make people aware that India has become a hub of banned drugs. You will be shocked to find the list of drugs, which we consume and are actually banned in other countries. These drugs are selling as hot cakes in India. It is ghastly, but true.

    India has become a dumping ground for banned drugs. The business for production of banned drugs is blooming and because there are more consumers here and all illegalities are duly obeyed. The irony is that very few people know about the banned drugs and consume them unaware, causing a lot of damage to these people. The issue is severe and we must not delay in spreading the warning message to the offenders and innocent people.

    As big time business enterprises and small time defaulters, pharmaceuticals have been growing in every direction. There are few provisions for a proper check and control of spurious drugs in Indian markets. Worst than that is the little knowledge and slapdash attitude of the buyers. Even at this time, a large population takes medicine and drugs without prescribing a doctor, which in fact is a very wrong decision and can be dangerous.

    Drugs that have been globally discarded but are available in Indian markets include:

    Analgin
    It is a painkiller
    Reason for ban: Bone marrow depression.
    Brand name: Novalgin

    Cisapride
    For acidity, constipation
    Reason for ban: Irregular heartbeat
    Brand name: Ciza, Syspride

    Droperidol
    Anti-depressant. Reason for ban : Irregular heartbeat.
    Brand name: Droperol

    Furazolidone
    Anti-diarrhoeal
    Reason for ban: Cancer
    Brand name: Furoxone, Lomofen

    Nimesulide
    Painkiller, fever
    Reason for ban: Liver failure
    Brand name: Nise, Nimulid

    Nitrofurazone
    Anti-bacterial cream
    Reason for ban: Cancer
    Brand name: Furacin

    Phenolphthalein
    Laxative
    Reason for ban: Cancer
    Brand name: Agarol

    Phenylpropanolamine
    Cold and cough
    Reason for ban: stroke
    Brand name: D’cold, Vicks Action - 500

    Oxyphenbutazone
    Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug
    Reason for ban: Bone marrow depression
    Brand name : Sioril

    Piperazine
    Anti-worms
    Reason for ban: Nerve damage
    Brand name: Piperazine

    Quiniodochlor
    Anti-diarrhoeal
    Reason for ban: Damage to sight
    Brand name: Enteroquinol

    To ensure maximum safety and security, it is advisable to get only drugs prescribed by a medical practioner. Also, ask for the details like the name of the company that manufactures it. Always buy medicines from a recognized drug store.
