Astana. January 28. KazTAG -  More than 130 demanded drugs, including Cardiomagnil, Tsiprolet and heparin ointment, will disappear from pharmacies due to the order of the Ministry of Health, said Aigul Zhumabayeva, Majilis deputy.
“Recently, another order of the Ministry of Health came into force on the maximum prices for medicines and for a number of anti-coronavirus drugs will be reduced to 48%. At the same time, in addition to first aid drugs, such as aspirin and paracetamol, the list includes drugs that are not considered antiquarian. For example, "Advantan"  for allergies, "Prednisolone", which is prescribed, including for shocks and tumors, "Cardiomagnet", eye drops, anesthetic ointments. (…) Industry representatives  believe that due to the actions of the Ministry of Health, up to 70% of small pharmacies will be affected, and 131 drug names will disappear in all pharmacies. Perhaps they  will remain in subsidized network pharmacies, but now out of almost 10 thousand pharmacies in Kazakhstan, no more than 3% is subsidized, ”Zhumabayeva said. At the same time, she stressed that the order was published on January 11, and from January 21, the drugs should be discounted below the purchase price.
