Russians warned of a possible shortage of medicines

the Russian Association of manufacturers of medicines had written to the Chairman of the government of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin letter, which warned of possible disruptions in the provision of medications.

the Problem, I believe in unions, can arise because, in accordance with the new rules, from 1 July 2020 to introduce medicines without labeling only upon receipt of permission of the interdepartmental Commission, the newspaper “Izvestia”.

drug Manufacturers propose to simplify the procedure to allow companies only to notify authorities on the supply, as it was before.

the Ministry of health publication said that about 170 statements of medications without waiting for identification of the Commission’s decision. However, industry experts expect that the problems with the medication can begin in about three months.

we will Remind, in Monday “Izvestia” reported, citing data from the state system of EMIS, in Russia sharply rose in price analgin — last month, the average price of popular painkillers grew by 26.5% to 17 rubles per pack. Moreover, it was indicated by the publication, in commercial structures there is evidence of the rise in price of analgin to 38%.

As explained to “Izvestia”, the main reason is the rising cost of imported pharmaceutical substances of which make even the domestic tablet. Because of this soon-to-rise prices for other drugs, experts warn.

meanwhile, later at the Federal Antimonopoly service (FAS) told TASS that he had not received complaints about the rising prices of analgin. “The Antimonopoly office received no complaints about the rising prices for the drug dipyrone,” — said the FAS.

Add at the end of June it was noted that Russian pharmacy in the past month sold drugs to 75.3 billion rubles in retail prices, which is 14% less than in April of this year. These data were presented in the review of the DSM Group.

In real terms, sales are estimated to be in 351,7 million packages. This is 15.7% less than in April, and 12.1% less than in may 2019.

experts believe that reducing demand for drugs may be savings due to the reduction of incomes, but most likely it is due to a number of other reasons. For example, before leaving in isolation a purchase medicines for the future and are now using stocks. In addition, due to continuous stay at home and frequent hand washing people less sick.
