Chemists to boycott docs prescribing excessive drugs in Baramulla
Baramulla, Nov 18: The Chemists and Distributors Association Baramulla has decided to boycott doctors indulging in writing excessive drugs to the patients to earn maximum benefits from different pharmaceutical companies.
In a press conference here, the Association members said, such initiative had become inevitable as some of the doctors continued with this ‘unethical’ practice, even after having been intimated several times.
“Such practice has been going on from the last two years in Baramulla and we have even identified the medicos involved in it. Now we have decided not to entertain their prescriptions” said Muhammad Ashraf.
He said some doctors not only have been found recommending excessive medicine, but have been regularly prescribing calcium, multivitamins, and proteins even for simple cold.
He said all the medicines were being prescribed from a particular pharmacist company which is allegedly benefiting them.
He said some medical representatives who have good relations with these doctors used to remain in the OPD of district hospital throughout the day to ensure that their medicines were being prescribed by the medicos.
Muhammad Ashraf said our society had been adversely affected by the ongoing turmoil and there had been manifold increase in the number of people suffering from one ailment or the other. “However, some doctors are taking advantage these patients and prescribe many drugs to them,” he added.
