Fake Malaria Drug In Circulation, FG Raises The Alarm by Adesiji77: 8:32pm On Aug 20, 2016
The Federal Government has stepped up vigilance within the drug supply chains in the country on the circulation of two confirmed falsified versions of Quinine Sulphate.

A statement said the Federal Ministry of Health received a medical alert that the two falsified drugs contain zero active pharmaceutical ingredients.

The statement by Mrs Boade Akinola, Director, Media and Public Relations of the ministry, on Saturday said the drugs were circulating in West and Central Africa.

Akinola said the two version of the drug were circulating in Cameroon and Democratic Republic of Congo.

She said the quinine Sulphate was used in the treatment of malaria.

According to her, the implication of using the falsified one is that it will not be effective and may also lead to other health challenges.

She said one of the fake products was named Quinine Sulfate 300 mg with 1000 Tablets per container, Batch Number 10H05, expiry date 09/2018 and it manufactured 09/2014.

Akinola added that the drug manufactured by Novadina Pharmaceutical Limited, London, United Kingdom was first discovered in Cameroon.

The director said the other version of the fake drug was Quinine Sulphate 300mg with 100 Tablets per container; batch F4387, expiry date 11/18 and its date of manufacture is 12/14.

She explained that the product was manufactured in India by CAD Pharm, and it was discovered in Bunia, Democratic Republic of the Congo.

She advised Nigerians to be vigilant and report to the nearest National Agency for Food and Drug Administration office anywhere the drugs were spotted including hospitals and pharmaceutical shops.

How can a human being be pleased to make money from fake drugs? Did they ever stop to think of the children that would swallow the poison?

Manufacturers and distributors of such drugs deserve to be in prison for life. I just don't want to condemn them to death, even though they have condemned their unsuspecting victims to death.

Some comments really show how low-thinking some persons are. Complications from drugs is one of the causes of increase in chronic diseases. Considering the side effect of quinine sulphate, one should be extremely careful with this type of drug. Usually doctors prescribed medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects.

So if the Federal Ministry of Health received a medical alert that the two falsified drugs contain zero active pharmaceutical ingredients, then it is more of a health hazard than treatment. Consider the side effect of quinine sulphate and decide if you will want to take such drug with no health benefits.

SIDE EFFECTS:
Mild headache, flushing, unusual sweating, nausea, ringing in the ears, decreased hearing, dizziness, blurred vision, and temporary changes in color vision may occur. Quinine may cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), especially during pregnancy. Symptoms of low blood sugar include sudden sweating, shaking, fast heartbeat, hunger, blurred vision, dizziness, or tingling hands/feet.

The best form of treatment against Malaria is prevention. Read the article HOW TO CONTROL MOSQUITOES AT HOME - http://health2wealth.com.ng/control-mosquitoes-home/
