Bhopal (Newdunia State Bureau). A list is being prepared to ensure availability of medicines in Ayurvedic dispensaries (hospitals) of the state. They are placed in the category of the most essential medicines. There is still a list of essential medicines, but they have been selected from the popular medicines which are necessary for treatment in more than one disease. Based on this list, it will be made mandatory to be in every dispensary. It will have important medicines for all the diseases ranging from knee massage to the prevalent diseases. Now many medicines are not on dispensaries, people are forced to buy them from the market.
The list of these medicines is being listed under the scripture and patent category according to the language of Ayurveda. Deputy Director of AYUSH Department, Dr. SP Verma said that 16 of the 30 medicines included in the list of scriptures have been considered as very mandatory.
These include Tribhuvan Kirti Ras, Sameerapannag Ras, Sitopaladi Churna, Triphala Churna, Sanjeevani Vati, Ashwagandharishta, Mahanarayana Oil, Dashan Sanskar Manjan etc. Eight out of 16 of the patent category have been included in the drugs super-mandatory category. These include Kafol syrup, Mystal oil etc. Dr. Verma says that this list is being sent to the department and a decision will be taken soon regarding its availability.
Right now it’s a problem
Sources say that there is a shortage of many medicines in the dispensaries. Physicians advise to bring these medicines from the market. Due to the shortage of these medicines, the demand letter is not sent at the departmental level in due time and patients are upset. After approval of the list of most compulsory medicines, it will be mandatory to keep them in the dispensaries. The list is made in such a way that these drugs are useful in most of the prevalent diseases. This will eliminate the compulsion to buy medicines from the market with timely availability of medicines.
