When the central government banned 328 fix dosage combinations (FDC) medicines last year, there was considerable fierce action on this.Some pharmaceutical makers reached the court and the Supreme Court removed the ban on the three drugs including the sarreadon. Companies charge more than usual for FDC or other branded medicines. The government has started promoting generic medicines through the Public Drug Center.
