substances. "Abuse of drugs occurs when taking
the drug without the prescription and supervision
of a physician, taking the drug given by the

medicines illegally or buy medicines in a place

For a drug that is often abused, the Deputy for

(OOT) that are still found circulating in the
market. OOT often misused, namely psychotropic
drugs, for example dumolid or an illegal drug

Remedies for Relief "The drugs that we found
still in circulation, including tramadol,
trihexypenidil , dextromethorpan, nitrazepam,
chlorpromazine, amytriptilline, class diazepam or
benzodiazepine," said dra. Nurma Hidayati. These
medications are usually available in generic and
patent, for example trihexypenidil which has a
brand named patents hexymer, dextromethorpan
which is contained in cough medicine and the
class of nitrazepam such as dumolid. Nurma also
stressed the dangers of abuse of psychotropic
drugs. "Psychotropic drugs affect the central
nervous system because she had side effects that
felt as a sedative. That which is perceived by
the users, although they do not realize the
effect in the long term," he continued.
Medications-these sedatives have dangerous
effects if abused, including dependence. In
addition, if the individual using this drug in
excess or overdose, can cause depression of the
central nervous system, lethargy to coma. Nurma

that the POM continues to eradicate the
circulation of drugs online that is considered
troubling Medicine For Sinus Infection, Treat
Acute and Chronic Sinusitis "Although already
block the site or do a take-down, we also must
prevent it from the head thereof, namely by
collaborating with online entrepreneurs
(e-commerce) to do the screening so this drug
can not be sold online," he said. The directorate
of special criminal investigation of Polda Metro
Jaya find the presence of a number of medicines
expired that are still circulated in a number of
drug stores in the Market area Scout, East
Jakarta. The mode is to change the year of
expiration drug updated. Director of special
criminal investigation of Polda Metro Jaya
police Commissioner Fadil Imran said, a
medication expiration date that is sold back is
the drugs most widely consumed by the public.

Remedies and Medicine For Stomach Pain and
Aches In addition to the types of drugs common,
more Eminent, there is also a heart drug
expiration that are still marketed but in small
amounts. Drugs expired if consumed can have an
impact on health. For that, consumers are asked
to be more observant and careful in checking the
expiration date on the medicines. "Actually, if
we are observant and meticulous look very easy
to (distinguish it). Actually not too neat (the
actors change the expiration date), with the
naked eye can also be distinguished," said Fadil.
Drugs that are expired can be seen from the
packaging. In addition, note the mold numbers on
the expiration date to distinguish whether it
has been changed/updated or not. "If a drug that
has not yet expired, not expired it looks if not
replaced from the type of letter and then the
thickness of the print, it looks. If he has been
changed will inevitably be different from the
thickness of the print and type the letter for
example (font) Arial replaced Times New Roman
would be different," he explained. Note the
color of the packaging on the drugs. The
packaging of medicines expired will look faded
compared to medications that still have not
expired Non Drowsy Allergy Medicine Loratadine
or Cetirizine "Then the color or packaging
rather than the medication expiration date must
have been dull, the old stuff must be visible.
Third in terms of price, although yesterday the
price equal to the market price," he said. The
circulation of counterfeit drugs and illegal
continue to increase. This of course raises the
concern of consumers. According to the Food and
Drug Supervisory Agency (BPOM) this year, the
circulation of counterfeit drugs and illegal
increased by 10 percent. The deputy for the
Supervision of the Product, Terapatik and Drug,

demand in the market or that are expensive. For
example, antibiotics, drugs beauty such as
slimming, or face cream. Pay attention to the
quality of the drug is crucial before buying.
Consuming fake drugs can be very dangerous for
health. Instead of heal, the greater the risk of
disease will become increasingly severe and can
lead to death, said Retno in the event of STOP

  • According to Retno, there are still many people
    who buy drugs in retail in a shop or a drug
    store roadside and buy online. This is without
    regard to the quality and originality of the drug
    purchased. FDA urged the public to be more
    careful in buying the drug. Here are some tips
    provided by the FDA as an effort to to avoid fake
    drugs. Belilah drug in place of official sales.
    For hard drugs always buy at the pharmacy using a
    doctor's prescription. See also the label listed
    on the packaging of the drug such as the number
    of marketing authorization, the drug name and
    address of the manufacturer as well as the
    expiration date of the product.

    which include antibiotics, which are not. But
    there are at least 5 antibiotics are the most
    popular, frequently used community. So many
    types of antibiotics that exist not only confuse
    patients, sometimes the doctors who prescribe
    also confused. It is not impossible because it
    does not know for sure what antibiotics should
    be used, then directly selected the most potent.

    Indonesian Pharmacist association (IAI), Drs M
    Dany Pratomo, MM, Apt, the selection of
    antibiotics should not be arbitrary. Ideally
    should be definitive according the germs that
    cause the infection and should be started from

    standard. Starting from the most simple, if it
    dont work use the latest generation. If you are
    given the most cutting-edge, it's like killing a
    mosquito-made bombs," said Drs Dany when
    contacted detikHealth as written on Wednesday
    (5/9/2012). Selection of antibiotics that are not
    rational sometimes not the willingness of the
    doctor, but pressure patients who feel they have
    the money and want to be given a drug most
    potent. Finally the doctor choose the drug is not
    based on standard raw materials, but only to
    please his patients. So the patient is also not
