NPPA fixes retail price of 20 drugs including FDCs for Blood pressure control, dual antiplatelet


NPPA fixes retail price of 20 drugs including FDCs for Blood pressure control, dual antiplatelet

New Delhi: Through a recent notification, the government regulatory agency, the National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) has fixed the retail price of 20 drug formulations under the Drugs (Prices Control) Order, 2013 exclusive of goods and services tax (GST).

Many medicines whose price have been fixed by NPPA include fixed-dose combination and other medicines to control Blood Pressure, dual antiplatelet therapy, cold medication, epilepsy, IBD medications, antibiotics and more

The drug formulations whose price has been fixed include combinations of Teneligliptin + Metformin Tablet; Paracetamol + Phenylephrine + Caffeine (Anhydrous) + Diphenhydramine Tablet; Clopidogrel + Aspirin tablet and others.

Notable drug makers inclusive of Sun Pharma, Emcure Pharma, Dr Reddy’s Lab, Cipla, Akums Drugs, Torrent Pharma, Zydus Healthcare, Hetero Labs, Intas Pharma and others are responsible for the manufacture of these formulations.

Many FDC whose price have been fixed are commonly used. For instance,  Clopidogrel in combination with Aspirin tablet is used to treat worsening chest pain (new heart attack, unstable angina) and to keep blood vessels open and prevent blood clots after certain procedures (such as a cardiac stent).

While another combination of Medoxomil + Amlodipine + Hydrochlorothiazide Tablet manufactured by Hyderabad based Dr Reddy’s under the trademark Trisertain is indicated for treating is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems.
