List Of Banned Drugs In India

Drugs undergo rigorous testing before they are introduced into the market. They are first tested in animals and then in human beings during clinical trials for their efficacy as well as safety.

Despite all precautions, some adverse effects of drugs appear only when the drug is used in the general population after its approval. 

These adverse effects are detected through a process of regular monitoring after the drug is released into the market called pharmacovigilance(1)

If the adverse effects are severe or the risks of using the drug outweigh the benefits, or if the drug is ineffective, the country may ban the drug or the drug company may itself voluntarily withdraw the drug.

Some drugs may cause adverse effects only when combined with particular drugs. In such cases, only the fixed-dose combination is banned and not the individual drugs(2)
