As per report the cough syrup which should have compounds like codeine and dextromethorphan hydrobromide was labeled as Povidone Iodine, which is used as an anti-microbial solution by hospitals before surgeries. Meanwhile Tamilnadu Medical Services Corporation (TNMSC) Managing Director P Umanath attributed the confusion to errors in labeling, including the logos.



Furthermore he told that the manufacturer of the item was the supplier for both Tamilnadu and Rajasthan and that he had mislabeled the iodine solution to be supplied to Rajasthan with the logo of Tamilnadu. Reportedly Umanath also stated that the manufacturer had already recalled the mislabeled medicines from Rajasthan and that the Rajasthan government might take action on him for the mix-up. Moreover he also said that the TNMSC will impose a fine on the manufacturer for misusing the state government’s logo.

Previously TNMSC stopped buying combination drugs since September 2018 after the Central government banned them due to increasing antibiotic resistance on account of multiple drugs being consumed by the people. Moreover the Central government last week banned 80 more Fixed Dose Combination drugs including painkillers and antibiotics and drug manufacturers have approached the Supreme Court against the ban and the case is pending.
