Government bans Saridon, 328 other combination drugs

In a blow to both domestic and foreign pharmaceutical firms, the central government has banned a total of 329 fixed drug combinations (FDC). However, the ban has been lauded by health activists worried about growing antibiotic resistance due to the misuse of medicines.
FDC means a combination of two or more drugs in a fixed dosage ratio. Some of the banned drugs were: Cefixime + Azithromycin, Ofloxacin + Ornidazole Suspension, Metronidazole + Norfloxacin, and Paracetamol + Propyphenazone + Caffeine (trade name Saridon)
