Stop Before You Pop Them: Combiflam, DCold, Cetrizine And Others Marked ‘Substandard’ DCold and Combiflam

If you are feeling under the weather and thinking of popping a pill of Combiflam, DCold or Cetrizine, you may want to think again.

The Central Drug Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO) screened these drugs in March and the results were as follows:

-Combiflam was marked substandard because of ‘disintegration’

-DCold featured in the list for the same reason.

-Cetrizine was marked substandard because of ‘related substances’

Readers may note that that Combiflam is taken as a pain-killer, D Cold is used when suffering from common cold and Cetrizine is anti-allergic.

At the time of publication, the responses from the side of the three drugs were not obtained.
