There are so many brands available in each medicine
E.g. Amoxicillin with clavulonic acid very commonly used ANTIBIOTIC is available as
Augmentin syrup, tab
Similarly Paracetamol used for fever is available in somy brandnames e.g.
Like this In each medicine there are so many brands .Just to give few e.g. I have mentioned above
Every Chemist cannot keep all Brands
There are so many medicines used daily in several BRAND NAMES.
Similarly some Medicines are UNIQUELY prescribed
E.g. LARFAST AM
ALASPAN etc brandnames
containsLoratidine maleate NONSEDITATING medicine for cold and cough is NOT prescribed routinely by many is prescribed by me is not available in many MEDICAL STORES
There are many drugs like this
If any medicine of ONE brand is not available ,one can use equivalent brand containing same medicine
We never insist any patient to get medicines at only one Medical Store.Every patient has liberty to purchase wherever they want
ONLY concern is ,it should not be a wrong SUBSTITUTION
I have LOT of concern for my patients. I do my work honestly
If anybody has any doubt I can explain 100 times.
Please ask your doctor to clarify any doubt
