So many drugs have already banned but it is not effected legally.Why?
No chemist has been arrested till now.If any chemist has been arrested for saling ie,nimesulide,phenylpropanolamin etc.,it will be the legal record in India.

Sir, Despite ban Phenypropanoleamine [PPA] is still continued to be on sale. infact many of the companies have replaced the safer pseudoephedrine salt with PPA despite the reports of poor safety profile. Only strict action against these companies will help to safegaurd the patients, like cancellation of their licences and imposing heavy fines worth crores.

Idiots wasn't need to be banned nimesulide,ppa and sibutramine bcoz in india they didn't caused fatal cases,in real they were safe.ppa & sibutramine is known for it's beneficial use in anti-decongestant(only ppa),obesity,fatigue,energy,sexual arousal,sleepiness,drowsiness, as respiratory stimulants,in urinary incontinence,anhedonia and in priaprism.look it has alot benefits.

I'm using NISE[nimesulide from DRL] from 6years and I never had any side effect because of that. And it works awesome for acute pain. I don't know why people get carried away! Nothing in this world have 100% advantages and no disadvantages. In my personal opinion, nimesulide works better than paracetamol for acute pain

It is a tragedy that nimuselide has become a victim of marketing strategy and has been banned. This drug is safer and more effective then paracetamol. The judges and counselors involvement in the ban have been a weapon to bring about a ban to an effective drug that has been utilized for years with out much side effect. In certain context it has been safer then paracetamol. In the pediatric group it has been safer then paracetamol in many clinical conditions. The judges and lawyers involved have not done there job to bring about this ban, They definitely had the wrong inputs. It has been one of the best inventions to mankind in the last thirty years which have been guillotined by vested pharmaceutical companies. In fact the pharmaceutical companies that have brought about this ban should be criminally prosecuted.
