  • Are prescription drugs from India safe?

    Are prescription drugs from India safe?

    Key facts about prescription drugs made in India

    1. Over 9 million Americans buy their prescription drugs overseas every year!
    2. India’s pharmaceutical industry supplies 40% of over-the-counter and generic prescription drugs consumed in the United States, so the increased scrutiny could have profound implications for American consumers
    3. India is now the worlds largest provider of generic medications with a 20% market share (and growing)
    4. 88% of all prescription drugs prescribed in America are for generics

    Are prescription drugs from India safe?

    The vast majority of prescription drugs are now made outside the U.S, with India being the 2nd biggest exporter with 20% market share. Most of the active ingredients for prescription drugs are also imported from India and other overseas nations.

    Some drugs approved in America are either fully manufactured overseas, or have some of the ingredients imported from overseas.

    Given that there are now over 520 India pharmaceutical manufacturers making products for the American market, it is unfortunate that a small handful of these (whose drugs we do not sell) have fallen foul of various FDA inspections for specific drugs. However, the FDA also reports pharma companies from the USA and other countries so the issue is not just linked to India.

    Many officials would like to see a regulatory system in India that looks more like the European Union, where the central European Medicines Agency oversees the 28 member state regulatory framework.

    Last year a report from New Delhi found that medicines made in India were found to be safe and effective, after a year-long health ministry survey tested around 50,000 drug samples across India.

    The Central Drug Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO) stated that

    "What has come out in the survey is that the extent of not-of-standard-quality drugs in India is lesser than the not-of-standard-quality drugs elsewhere in the world. The largely held perception circulating and magnified many times over that India is one of the (biggest) producers of substandard quality of drugs has proven to be wrong,"

    In an ideal world this investigation would be done by an independent foreign body to ensure complete impartiality of the testing and results - but who would that be?


    What is being done by the FDA to improve the safety of prescription drugs from abroad?

    All drugs approved in the U.S.A, regardless of which country they were made, must be in compliance with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. This ensures that drugs meet strict manufacturing standards to assure quality and product label requirements.

    The FDA also help ensure drug safety as listed below:

    1. The FDA is working on a major research programme with academic institutions, whose main purpose is to improve the availability and safety of U.S. generic drugs
    2. Their Globalization Initiative Programme helps ensures imported drugs are as effective and safe as those products made in America.
    3. The FDA continues to deploy more inspectors in those developing countries supplying more of the worlds medicine (such as India), to ensure they are following Current Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
    4. The agency is also working closer with all the relevant regulatory counterparts in these countries.
    5. The FDA routinely sample and tests drugs from manufacturing sites, retail outlets and wholesale distributors, the results of which help drive further drug safety regulations, education and surveillance.
    6. The FDA also monitors and evaluates complaints from doctor,nurses and consumers and drug defect reports to ensure drug recalls and improved safety.

    So are prescription drugs from India safe?

    Well yes, otherwise:

    1. Millions of people around the world (including America) wouldn't be buying medicines manufactured in India
    2. USA pharma manufacturers would not be importing their drugs active ingredients from India.
    3. We wouldn't be selling them!

    However, we also understand peoples concerns about not trusting the cheap brand and generic versions produced in India, even if they are the same as their counterparts manufactured in the USA.

    Always remember to make sure the online drugs you buy are from a legitimate pharmacy that always requests a valid prescription for your prescription drugs and does not sell fake or controlled drugs!

  • Drugs going off patent through 2020

    Looking to find out more information about drugs going off patent through 2020?

    This post provides information on the "patent cliff" and links to what we consider the three best articles on the internet regarding patent cliffs and upcoming patent expirations.

    What is the Patent Cliff?

    The 1984 Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984 kick-started the generic drug industry and helped launch the notorious “patent cliff” era of 2010–2015, when patents for many blockbuster drugs expired. The main “patent cliff” era maybe over, but upcoming patent expirations still provide a massive potential market for new generic drugs.

    The patent cliff is a period when patents for many of the small molecule blockbuster drugs, such as Nexium (esomeprazole) and Lipitor (atorvastatin), expired. For example, between 2009 and 2014 over $120 billion in branded pharmaceutical sales were lost due to patent expirations.

    This then allows generic drug companies to make cheaper versions of the brand drugs, whilst still benefiting from the profits. The first generic company to gain approval benefits from an exclusive 180 day marketing period. After 180 days, other generics from other companies can also be released. This in turn should benefit consumers due to generic drug price drops due to this increased competition.

    However, given the recent increase in large molecule biologics, is the patent cliff really over?

    This excellent infographic from Dicksondata shows the major drugs off patent through 2017

    Upcoming Biologics Expiry Dates

    A brand biologic patent has to expire first before an approval on a generic bio-similar can be released. However, many biologics have a long waiting period before bio-similar competition can affect pricing.

    The Generics and Biosimilars Initiative has listed the following key upcoming biologic patent expirations:

    • Erbitux (cetuximab) - Feb 2016
    • Rituxan (rituximab) - Sept 2016
    • Herceptin (trastuzumab) - June 2019
    • Avastin (bevacizumab) - July 2019
    • Aranesp (darbepoetin alfa) - May 2024
    • Enbrel (etanercept) - Nov 2028
