32 medicines, including Liv.52, banned in UP, could not meet the set standard

Lucknow: If you are taking a medicine called Liv.52 to treat your liver, then this news is very important for you. In fact, a total of 32 medicines, including Liv-52, have been banned in Uttar Pradesh.

The Ayurvedic Department investigated all the Ayurvedic medicines that were complained about across the state. During this investigation, deficiencies were found in 32 drugs. Subsequently, the administration took strict steps and ordered a ban on these medicines.

Liv.52 is a medicine that is consumed by many people. The mixture of Mandur Bhasma and Daruharidra in this medicine has not been found to meet the standard. This product from a company named Himalaya is used by the common man to improve their liver function.

According to information from sources, Himalaya officials have met with the director of the Ayurvedic department in UP to explain the deficiencies found in the medicine.

Last year, the drug regulator banned the use of cold-prescribed drug combinations in children below four years of age and ordered that drugs should be properly labeled.

According to a news report, the regulator said that the consultation was conducted following concerns about the use of unapproved anti-cold drug formulations in infants, and consequently recommended against using that drug combination for the said age group.
