Global studies have reported that 20% medicines sold in India are counterfeit, We seek your experiences on counterfeit or fake medicines and if you, your family, friends, staff have been a victim. Your participation and efforts of LocalCircles with the Govt in last 5 years have led to many actions in healthcare affordability as listed below and we are confident that with your participation, we can raise awareness and drive action on this as well.

Areas where citizen reporting and LocalCircles' escalation has led to actions

1) Reduction in prices of life saving drugs
2)Recent price cap by NPPA on about 60 formulations
3)Increased availability of generic drugs through Govt's Jan Aushadhi stores
4) Capping of prices of medical devices. more

As citizens, if come to know counterfeit medicines, immediately local FDA must be informed. Again , FDA must be alert, vigilent and preempt to catch such counterfeit manufacturing activity and seal the premises immediately. more  
Raiding all bulkproductionofdrugs in Hyderabad and surroundings will yield many un authorised Lallu punju companies hiring idle machinery to produce these fake medicines dump and disappear.
Sultan bazar ,Kothi there as a street for whole sale drugs which is full of these fake drugs which all hospitals from districts buy .Kindly raid them. more  
The manufacturers/dealers/retailers etc of the counterfeits medicines should be made to pay with their life and ill gotten property as they are playing with the life of public at large. more  
Most medicines are storef at NTP. And they are stored similarly at home. Hence the question of medicines deteriorating does not arise. The main point I asked is why full strips are accepted for being returned, not part strips. It has nothing to do with storage method. more  
Medicine stores have never accepted part strips as returns, as many of them do not contain the batch number, manufacture and expiry date, etc. more  
Doctors still have not started prescribing GENERIC MEDICINES more
