Today from medicine they demand strict compliance with many criteria.
One of them is the effectiveness of a given medicine - for example, there are often questions about the effectiveness of Arbidol.
Many are interested in the question of whether arbidol is used in other countries, because its action is often questioned.
The effectiveness of "Arbidol"
Russian system of certification of new drugsDoes not always correspond to world standards, as a result of which pharmacies offer buyers a large number of medicines, the effectiveness of which is not confirmed, and safety is not proven. So, the drug "Arbidol", which is intended for the treatment and prevention of influenza, is recommended by the Ministry of Health and Social Development of Russia. But does it really help?
"Arbidol" has a lot of domestic and less expensive counterparts that perfectly cope with the flu virus.
From the point of view of the current legislation,"Arbidol" is completely legal and safe. This drug is registered in Russia, and, thanks to brilliant marketing, it is in the first place in terms of sales among similar drugs. However, many pharmacologists argue that the action of "Arbidol" is only to empty the wallet, because its effectiveness has not yet been proven, and no medical organization takes it seriously.
The use of "Arbidol" abroad
In foreign countries, the sale of pharmaceuticalDrugs are all serious. No company can register a medicine that has not passed a series of clinical trials for efficacy and safety. Such studies require large material costs, which must then be recouped by the quality of the drug. Therefore, in other countries of the world, Arbidol, which is a purely Russian drug, is not produced or used.
In addition, all information about the quality of "Arbidol" comes exclusively from its manufacturer, who is an interested person.
In the CIS countries analogies are used"Arbidol" based on this drug - so, in Belarus they sell Arpetol, in Ukraine - "Immustat", in Russia, Remantadin is also popular, which is not inferior to "Arbidol" in efficiency, but it has a lower price. Raw materials for the manufacture of these preparations are supplied by the plant on which Arbidol is manufactured.
Other countries of the world widely use instead of"Arbidol" is an antiviral drug like "Tamiflu," which went through all the necessary clinical studies that confirmed its safety and effectiveness - unlike the unpredictable Russian Arbidol.
