Antibiotics will only be bought with prescription from now on. The decision was taken by the Ministry of Health. Thus, the Pharmaceutical Inspectorate will have to monitor the use of antibiotics.
The new provisions stated that the pharmacies will have to keep the prescriptions for 30 days.
In such a way, Pharmaceutical Inspectorate will check whether pharmacists inform patients about the prescribed drug trade names available and prices.
According to the World Health Organization, 10 percent of the use of medicines are antibiotics.
