Disturbing news comes from pharmacies. There is a shortage of medicine for one of the diseases. This is a big problem because the number of cases is increasing
There is no medicine for angina. Doctors have no doubts this is a serious problem.
According to the “Super Express” portal, doctors are sounding the alarm because many pharmacies lack the drug used to treat strep throat. This is a big problem, especially now, when we are dealing with high morbidity. As the first, information about the lack of drugs for this disease was reported by the portal “RMF24”. This was also confirmed by the Ministry of Health.
It is becoming more and more difficult to get this drug
The situation is getting more and more serious. Many patients have trouble getting the medication used to treat strep throat. Doctors usually prescribe phenoxymethyl penicillin to patients suffering from this unpleasant ailment. This is a serious problem not only for medics, but above all for patients.
While various substitutes are available on the market, they are not as effective in fighting the disease as phenoxymethyl penicillin. “This is the type of penicillin I need to effectively treat pharyngitis. It is no coincidence that this therapy is the number one treatment for streptococcal angina,” says one doctor.
It is worth recalling that the highest incidence of angina is recorded in the period from autumn to spring. Children and adolescents who come into contact with large rural groups are particularly at risk of falling ill.
Ministry of Health confirms
Ministry of Health confirms that we do have a problem with the availability of this particular drug. The representatives of the ministry explained that the reason for the lack of availability of the drug was the decision of the manufacturer, which stopped deliveries until the end of October. It was also assured that the search for a drug outside our country is underway.
Do you think we can fix this problem?
