The health ministry has banned 328 fixed-dose combination or FDC drugs including household brands like Saridon on the grounds that the ingredients in these medicines do not markedly add to the benefits that people can get from taking them. The order immediately bans the manufacture, marketing and sale of several common cough syrups, painkillers, and cold and flu drugs. The country's drug advisory body, the Drug Technical Advisory Board or DTAB, has said there is no therapeutic justification for the ingredients contained in the 328 FDCs and they must be banned in public interest.
