LAHORE - Pakistan Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association (PPMA) has appealed to the masses to use cough syrups as per doctorsí prescription and avoid overdose.

In a statement issued here, the PPMA said that both the companies, Ethical Lab Pvt Ltd and Reko Pharmacal (Pvt) Ltd, have not only withdrawn their syrups from the market but have also asked the distributors to stop the sale of Dextromethorphan cough syrup 120 ml and Tyno Cough Syrup SF 120 ml.

Both the companies have also said that they are ready to face all sorts of enquiries so much so they would extend maximum cooperation if government decides to hold a Judicial Enquiry to the issue. They said that they have done their part of duty by investigating the ingredients of the syrup thoroughly and found nothing wrong with them.

However, they urged the authorities to bring to the limelight the findings of the reports into the syrup issue.

They said that both the companies and their employees were equally aggrieved over the recent deaths.
