February 21, 2024 (MLN): The Ministry of National Health Services, Regulations & Coordination has categorically denied the fabricated reports that the use of vitamins, multi-vitamins, minerals, and health & over the counter products has been banned in the country.

According to a press release issued today, the purpose of the recent notification issued by the Ministry is to break the nexus among the pharmaceutical industry, prescribers, and pharmacy /medical stores to force consumers for use of irrational & costly products.

This notification is aimed at providing choice to consumers for use of these products available at segregated self-service shelves in pharmacy /medical stores.

The patients are free and at liberty to buy any vitamin or supplements of their choice without being forced to buy any particular brand upon prescription.

This step is in line with best global practices of availability of these products over the counter. Consumer choice/selection will bring the prices of these products due to enhanced competition.
