As news of the use of a drug called dexamethasone in coronavirus disease became common, its stockpile began to enter the Pakistani market and it became scarce, while it began to be sold in the market at many times higher prices.

As soon as the news came from the UK that patients suffering from anxiety due to Corona were benefiting from the use of a drug called Dexamethasone, the stockpiling of this drug in Pakistan and the sale of it in black began.

A box of 25 injections of Dexamethasone was being sold at Rs 480 a day ago in Kachi Gali, the largest wholesale medicine market in the country, which is now selling at Rs 800 to Rs 1,000.

Similarly, a box of one thousand pills of this medicine was being sold for Rs. 400 but now it is being sold for Rs. 600 to 800.

The problem is that when a patient buys it from the market in retail, the medicine becomes even more expensive.

Dexamethasone injections and pills are sold for the whole of Pakistan from the Madison Market in Karachi.

On the other hand, according to sources in the Chief Drug Inspector’s Office, no orders for drug monitoring were received from DRAP officials in Sindh.

Monitoring of Dexamethasone sales has been started in Rawalpindi and punjab
