Question: Drug prescriptions in India
|Dr. Russell M - Mon Jun 09, 2003 1:03 pm||
Nimesulide is an NSAID being used in India even in the pediatric population, while it is banned at many other places. The Indian Association of Pediatrics have conveyed to the Drug Controller of India that no harm has come about by its use. Ciprofloxacin group of drugs are being used in children. What are the major areas of concern when starting a patient on Rofecoxib? Any comments?

Nimosulide has proven to produce some unwanted effect in some long term clinical trials and should be avoided especially in case of childrens.Although there is no such contra indication of its use but the FDA does not recomend its use. In India the phara company often influences the drug company and always its the physicians moral duty to select the drugs safe for his /her patients. Treat your patients as you would expected to be treated if you had the same condition.
