Apollo Pharmacy, on Friday, said it had issued a ‘cautionary advisory’ against drugs made by Ranbaxy Laboratories, but it was still selling products manufactured by the Indian drugmaker.
“A cautionary advisory was issued (over Ranbaxy drugs) based on concerns raised by the medical committee,” a spokesperson of Apollo Pharmacy said in a statement.
The pharmacy chain, a part of Chennai-based healthcare major Apollo Hospitals, is however, continuing to sell drugs made by Ranbaxy at its over 1,500 stores across the country.
“We have been working closely with Ranbaxy over the past week to verify all necessary certifications of their drugs,” the spokesperson,said, adding that the matter was in the process of being resolved as Ranbaxy continued to provide the necessary paperwork.
When contacted, a spokesperson of Ranbaxy Laboratories said: “We have met the CEO of Apollo Pharmacies and they have expressed complete trust on us and assured full support.
“Consultants continue to prescribe our products, and we have continuous supply of our products in Apollo Hospitals.”
