Delay the implementation of NMC rules for the prescription of generic drugs: IMA to government

<p>The National Medical Commission rules that require physicians to prescribe generic prescriptions were delayed, as per a demand made by the Indian Medical Association (IMA) on Monday. According to the IMA, the largest barrier to such medications is the lack of clarity over their quality.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-126190″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-1649353971-1669-11zon-750×422.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com 1649353971 1669 11zon” width=”1392″ height=”783″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-1649353971-1669-11zon-750×422.jpg 750w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-1649353971-1669-11zon-768×432.jpg 768w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-1649353971-1669-11zon-390×220.jpg 390w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-1649353971-1669-11zon-150×84.jpg 150w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-1649353971-1669-11zon.jpg 826w” sizes=”(max-width: 1392px) 100vw, 1392px” title=”Delay the implementation of NMC rules for the prescription of generic drugs: IMA to government 9″></p>
<p>Less than 0.1% of the medications made in India, according to the IMA, get their quality assessed.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>This action has to be postponed until the government can guarantee the quality of all the medications put on the market. Patient safety and care are non-negotiable, according to the group.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>All physicians must prescribe generic medications, according to the National Medical Commission’s (NMC) “regulations relating to professional conduct of registered medical practitioners,” or else they risk being penalized and perhaps having their license to practice temporarily terminated.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Additionally, it urged physicians not to recommend branded generic medications.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The government should follow the lead of the pharmaceutical industry and outlaw all branded pharmaceuticals, according to the IMA, noting that the government already allows for the sale of the same product by pharmaceutical firms at several price points.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The doctor’s organization said, “Such legal gaps must to be closed.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>“The inappropriate actions by NMC on the subject of generic medications is an emergency. Genuine generic advertising is required, according to the statement.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Given that contemporary medications may only be prescribed by physicians under this system, it is unclear why such pharmaceuticals should even be licensed if doctors are not permitted to prescribe branded products.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>“The government should provide licenses solely to generics and not to any branded pharmaceuticals while assuring the quality of generic drugs if it is serious about adopting generic drugs. It seems odd to make great brands accessible on the market while forbidding physicians, who are in charge of their patients’ health, from recommending them,” the statement read.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The IMA urged the government to implement a “one drug, one quality, one price” system, under which all brands would be either offered at the same price, which would be regulated or outlawed, and only generic medications would be permitted, as long as the best possible quality was maintained.</p>
