Myanmar to manufacture detoxification elixir for the first time

The Ministry of Industry will manufacture the detoxification elixir for the first time in this fiscal, according to a report in the Myawady Daily yesterday.
Previously, Myanmar used the detoxification medicines imported from abroad. Now, Myanmar will manufacture the detoxification elixir for the first time in Myanma Pharmaceutical Factory (MPF) (Insein) under the Ministry of Industry.
The detoxification elixir will be manufactured to meet the demand of the Ministry of Health and Sports. The medicine will reduce the withdrawal symptoms in people addicted to heroin or other narcotic drugs.
“The Ministry of Health and Sports have also ordered the methadome worth Ks 20 billion. Previously, the methadome was ordered from abroad. Now, we don’t need to order from abroad and can save the government spending. The medicine is liquid type. Upon completion of manufacturing medicine, we will sell the medicine to the Ministry of Health and Sports” said U Ko Ko Lwin, the permanent secretary of the Ministry of Industry.
To be able to manufacture the medicine, the raw materials of the medicine have been ordered from abroad especially from India, China and Germany.
Currently, Myanma Pharmaceutical Factory (MPF) (Insein) has submitted a proposal to manufacture the medicine. MPF (Insein) has planned to sell the detox elixir in the market upon getting permission from the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA).—GNLM
