Furthermore, another medication which is still readily available in the market today called Sinutab Extra Strength contains an ingredient which is said to be hazardous. The said medication contains phenylpropanolamine which exposes whoever consumes it to hemorrhagic risk, especially women. The said chemical is not recommended in the US.
With these two medications that are imposing a threat to the wellness of the Filipinos, it is high time for the health department to reexamine closely the approved medications that are circulating in the market today. Maybe a review on the ingredients utilized in medicines, and taking a second look into their possible effects, is essential in order to further elevate the quality of products being sold in the country. The medications we have in our pharmacies should be safe enough for every Filipino people to consume. More to that, the companies who released these medications in the market should be responsible enough to properly issue the concrete facts and information regarding their products for the government to properly identify what is hazardous and not.
