From the second quarter of 2017, pharmacies will start selling valokordin exclusively by prescription.
This forecast was given by Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Khloponin, who oversees the sphere of alcohol turnover. According to him, the exact decision will be made until April 2017.
"Hawthorn" endangered valokordin
Zelenka and iodine are still in question, but all alcohol-containing liquids that can be consumed for sure will be on the list of prescription drugs, Khloponin added, who in February 2016 expressed the need to include hawthorn tincture and similar concentrates, for example, motherwort tincture, EGAIS.
The editors of uznayvse.ru recalls that the government took up the regulation of alcohol-containing medications after the mass death of 77 Irkutsk citizens who had poisoned hawthorn tincture with deadly poisonous methanol in the composition. On Monday, December 26, a 30-day ban on the sale of alcohol-based non-food products was introduced on the territory of the Russian Federation.
More than 70 people died from poisonous Hawthorn
This initiative was greeted by Internet users cool. The Russians are not sure that the introduction of prescriptions for essential medicines such as valocordin and Corvalol will help overcome the nursery of counterfeit alcohol concentrates, and sick people, primarily "cores", may suffer as a result.
