Bengaluru: City-based homoeopathy doctors and practitioners have stated implementing safer drug dispensing practices to standardise and popularise the traditional form of medicine. These doctors have started prescribing pre-medicated homeopathic drugs that offer more quality, safety and hygiene than the conventional drugs.
These pre-medicated medicines or Boiron Tubes, as they are called, are high quality medicines packaged in a unique sealed tube and are considered gold standard in homoeopathy. These tubes are made of pharmaceutical grade plastic which does not react with the medicine and will have ingredient labelling, indications, batch number, intelligent design, expiry dates and MRP listed on them, giving patients more choice and convenience. Moreover, they are manufactured in high-tech plants.
Dr Muddassir Mulla, homoeopathic physician, Advance Classical Homoeo Clinic, said, “Pre-medicated drugs and contemporary packaging techniques are making homeopathic medicines extremely safe and fast acting with longer lasting effects.”
The new practices have been adopted following reports of loose medicines sold in market being laced with allopathic medicines and even steroids, sometimes in high dosages.
Dr Uma Kishore, Senior Consultant, Uma Homeo Clinic, said, “The new vials are cost effective and ensure accurate dosage as only a single globule is dispensed at one time. In the past, many vials of a single preparation were required to treat an illness as the medicine would be lost to evaporation.”
