Georgia tightening control over medicines2010-11-25 17:29
Georgia is going to tighten state control over medicines containing antidepressant tianeptine.
According to Business-Georgia, the ban may cover such medicines as coaxil and stablon.
It is also noted that very often, medicines containing tianeptine are used in Georgia not for medical purposes. Now those who buy or sell the abovementioned drugs without prescription will be criminally responsible. The expected sanctions imply up to 3 years of imprisonment.
Next week, deputies of the Georgian parliament will consider the amendments to the law On Drug Rehabilitation to tighten control over the medicines.
Tianeptine is a substance contained in many antidepressants. Tianeptine brings up one's spirits, reserves retardation of movements and generally tones up.
Let us remind you that not so long ago, officers of the investigative service of the Georgian Ministry of Finance sealed ten drugstores in the capital of Georgia for trading psychotropic drugs.
According to the Georgian media, the heads of the drugstores have been detained.
