LAHORE : A push conference was on Saturday organized by the Reformers Pharmacist Pakistan (RPP) at the Lahore Push Club in which Mushtaq Chaudhry, RPP patron, Dr Prof Atif Raza, Dr Prof Nisar Hussain Shah, Shamshaad Anees Hashmi, Rana Mateen, Naveed Shah and other leaders participated.
The RPP leaders claimed: “We aid the Reformers Pharmacist Pakistan to observe a generic names notification issued by the DRAP.” They stated the objection currently being held by a variety of stakeholders in this regard involves the lack of ability to know the medicine by the initially title or generic title at a pharmacy and the only alternative is the presence of a pharmacist at each pharmacy. They said that owing to deficiency of qualified pharmacists at pharmacies, each year, non-availability of medications as for each prescriptions leads to 1000’s of patients to die.
They demanded that the authorities should really legislate and get all provinces into self-confidence and make it obligatory to produce the prescription below the authentic title or generic name. The existence of a pharmacist really should be designed mandatory at every pharmacy. The governing administration should really just take vital actions to retain excellent and efficacy of generic medications.
