HA NOI (VNS)— The Drug Administration of Viet Nam has ordered the withdrawal from circulation of a batch of Dodextro capsules commonly used to relieve pain and reduce fever.
The decision was made after a drug sample taken from HCM City-based Codupha Pharmaceutical Center was tested and found to be substandard.
The batch, which has an expiry date of Feb 7, 2015, was produced by the Dong Nam Manufacturing Trading Pharmaceutical Corporation.
The producer and other distributors have been asked to promptly remove the batch from markets across the country and report to the administration before July 5. — VNS
