The Health Ministry banned 344 fixed drug combinations through a gazette notification issued over the weekend. These include several common cough syrup solutions, analgesics and antibiotic combinations, many of which are sold over the counter.

The ban, which comes into effect immediately, follows recommendations of an expert committee formed to examine the efficacy of these drug combinations. The industry, though, may question the basis of the ban and seek judicial intervention.

Fixed drug combinations have mushroomed in the market as companies in their quest for newer products — and often to beat price control — mix and match ingredients into a single molecule to market them as newer remedies.

Here is the complete list of all drug combinations banned by the ministry: 

* fixed dose combination of Aceclofenac + Paracetamol + Rabeprazole

      iTS good to see that the above said unethical combinatons are withdrawn......But the licenses to manufacture these are given by drugs dept only...whether it is state or central license. ie India does not have a standard protocol ,or else these would not have come to the market...Modi didnt bring it overnight.....If the intention was to clean up the market then they should have given time to finish these products or else those who have given approval must be punished...WAS THAT DONE? NO is the answer....All companies have suffered and those offered licenses for these unethical combinations are safe....what were these officialls doing all the time? I am also a person who strongly supports MODI... but i suggest that this was not the method.. .If more dangerous things like liquor and druugs are still available and nothing is done..All sorts of tobacco related materials are available....Those who have supported modi here in these columns should also think that Cigarettes are sold wuth warning that it is injurious to health...Most of the drugs banned were used a lot and no such warning is there,,it was to save people from certain illness....lt;br/gt;WONDER AMOXYCILLIN DICLOXACILLIN IS WITHDRAWN AND lt;br/gt;AMOXYCILLIN CLOXACILLIN STILL SELLS KYA KAREGA

        Can anybody confirm Clamp-Kid forte is banned or not? my child is having this combination of Aoxycillin 400mg Potium Clavulanate Diluted ip 57mg prescribed by Dr Amit Arora, Child specialist, New Delhi, for tonsillitis on 14.03.2016 evening for 7 days. After reading this list, I have talked to the doctor over phone at 2.26 pm today (17.03.2016) and referred the list above where it is mentioned "* fixed dose combination of Amoxicillin 250 mg Potium Clavulanate Diluted 62.5 mg". The doctor said it is (the prescribed combination) not banned and said it is not 250mg 62.5mg. Also referred if it would have been banned then it would not be available across India and advised to continue with the drug. Can any other doctor please confirm? What are the side effects of these combination drugs?

                  Often combinations cause allergies. I have tried to get tinidazol, but it generally comes as combination. This is a good step

                      While it certainly helps to know that the combos are not good and banned i doubt if even 1% of people know the salt composition of the drugs they take. Perhaps a better way to inform people would have been to report the B Names of the combination so that people could have avoided them. For example, instead of saying "Paracetamol Dextromethorphan Chlorpheniramine" if the article mentioned Bs XYZ, ABC, MNO, IJK and STU have been banned it would have reached out better.

                          Should have done long time earlier. Has spoiled healthy kidney liver and brain of innocent patients and had paid heavily for it. combination of monteleukast and citrizine fexefenedine should also be withdrawn.

                            Its good decision.... but as everone knows precaution better than cure....i dnt understand why DCGI OR State government approve these irrational combinations because of these decisions INDIA is the most resistance to pathogens. Cancel all local companies licences ....and restrict general practioners while prescribing these combinations and overuse,missuse of antibiotics.

                              In the interest of common man, who consumes these drugs, please provide the name of the pills and not just chemical combinations. Common man trusts doctors, who may still continue to prescribe banned drugs. Such ban without the name of drugs is useless.

                                  These are chemical combinations. How a person/layman will know in which b name they are sold? If medicine name is given, people will stop buying the.

                                    How can a common man can understand the above terminologies, provide the list of the "BANNED MEDICINES NAMES" and not the combinations.

                                          Please give atleast 1 year time to find out another effective drugs by doctors instead. Also it will enable pharma companies to reduce their losses to some extent.
