India has become a dumping ground for banned drugs. The business of producing banned drugs is blooming in India. Please make sure that you buy drugs only if prescribed by a doctor (also ask which company manufactures it, this would help to ensure that you get what is prescribed at the Drug Store) and that also from a reputed drug store. Not many people know about these banned drugs and consume them causing a lot of damage to themselves.
