Note: take a closer look at the drug packaging

in recent years, with the reform of the medical system, the number of roadside pharmacies is increasing, and more and more people have been used to buying drugs in pharmacies when they have minor diseases. However, will you buy medicine? How can I buy genuine reassuring drugs? In fact, as long as you carefully check the packaging box of drugs and understand the instructions above before buying drugs, you won't buy the wrong drugs

① drug name

it is best to clarify the name of the drug before buying it. If you don't know the name of a drug and the drugstore clerk recommends drugs, driven by interests, the clerk will often recommend high-priced drugs to you. As we all know, drugs are not the more expensive the better

② manufacturers

similar drugs produced by different manufacturers have different bioavailability and efficiency due to different manufacturing processes and processes. Therefore, when purchasing drugs, it is best to choose drugs from well-known brands and GMP certified pharmaceutical companies. However, it should be noted that GMP certification is not valid for life. In addition, some drugs should also indicate the factory address and contact all walks of life. Green environmental protection has become a top priority

③ approval number

in 2002, the State Drug Administration uniformly renewed and standardized the drug approval number. The unified drug approval number format is: national drug approval letter + 1 letter + 8 digits; The format of approval number of drugs for trial production is: national drug trial word + 1 letter + 8 digits

the first letter is "H" for chemical drugs, "Z" for traditional Chinese medicine, "s" for biological products, "t" for in vitro chemical diagnostic reagents, "F" for pharmaceutical excipients, and "J" for imported sub packaged drugs. The first and second digits of the number are the source code of the original approval number, of which "10" represents the drugs approved by the former Ministry of health, "19" and "20" represent the drugs approved by the State Food and drug administration before January 1, 2002, and the other two digits of the provincial administrative division code are the drugs approved by the original provincial health administrative departments. The third and fourth digits are the last two digits of the year of the year when the approval number was renewed, but the approval number from the Ministry of health and the State Food and drug administration still uses the last two digits of the original number. The 5th to 8th digits of the number are sequence numbers. For example, the national drug approval Z indicates that the Chinese patent medicine has been approved by the Guangxi health department (editor's note: the first two digits of Guangxi's administrative division code are 45), and the approval number was renewed in 2002

④ product batch number (ex factory date)

the common format is that the ex factory date of the product is the seventh batch of drugs on February 15, 2004. A more rigorous approach is to indicate the ex factory date and the production date at the same time, because there may be some minor differences between the two

⑤ validity period

for example, manual pendulum impact testing machine

some drugs are marked with specific years, and some are marked with total time. For example, the expiration date is:, indicating that the drug is effective until February 4th, 2006. If it is marked as 2 years, it means that the surface of these parts often adsorbs dust, and the drug is effective within 2 years from the date of production. When purchasing drugs, it is particularly important to carefully check the expiration date

⑥ indications (the "functional indications" of traditional Chinese Medicine)

that is, which diseases the drug is applicable to and what efficacy it has. Especially when choosing drugs that you have never used, you should pay attention to the indications, otherwise you can't get your symptoms, and it's useless after you buy them

⑦ precautions

for example, pregnant and lactating women should use it with caution; Do not drink alcohol during taking; Driving motor vehicles, ships and operating some soft packaging products requires that one tension machine is mostly used as a machine and is forbidden during the work of high-altitude operators; Please keep this medicine out of the reach of children... These tips are supplementary instructions for taking this medicine. Carefully reading the precautions may avoid some dangers

in short, before paying for drugs, you must check whether there is a manufacturer, approval number, production batch number, expiration date, indications and precautions on the packaging box, which are indispensable. Only by understanding the packaging can you buy reassuring drugs

for example, pregnant and lactating women should use it with caution; Do not drink alcohol during taking; It is forbidden to drive motor vehicles, boats, operate machines and work at heights; Please keep this medicine out of the reach of children...
