According to IRNA’s report from the Red Crescent community, Pirhossein Kolivand He said: With the coordination of the Food and Drug Organization, a shipment containing eight antibiotic suspensions suitable for the age group of children was purchased, which will enter the country in the coming days.
According to this report, due to the lack of antibiotics in the country’s pharmacies, the Red Crescent Society has started importing antibiotics after coordinating with the Food and Drug Organization.
According to IRNA, the Minister of Health, Treatment and Medical Education, Bahram Ainullahi, said on November 3rd, “Now, the supply and distribution of antibiotics has started urgently from the beginning of the week, and within 2 days, enough medicine will be available to the people.”
He added: due to the fact that the influenza epidemic started unpredictably in the middle of Mehr with the reopening of schools and universities, due to the increase in infected patients, the lack of antibiotics was also felt.
Referring to the prescription of drug consumption, Ain Allahi said: a rational drug prescription guide should be developed in the country and the doctor should prescribe the required drug to the patient based on this guide. The standard of prescribing medicine in a prescription is 1.5 units in the world, but in our country, four units are prescribed in a prescription, and this issue increases the consumption of medicine.
Sajjad Esmaili, advisor to the head of the Food and Drug Organization, told IRNA’s health reporter yesterday (November 3rd) that the first shipment of antibiotics will arrive in the country this weekend.
Esmaili clarified: 17 million antibiotic syrups were also supplied in Shahrivar, but due to the excessive and irrational consumption of this medicine, which was used even for a simple cold, we faced a shortage.
He pointed out: In order to solve the problem of antibiotic shortage, various meetings were held for domestic pharmaceutical companies to supply them until the end of the year, and through import, the first shipment of which will be sent to the country this weekend, the problem of shortage will be solved soon.
