Narco-drugs under firm check to prevent abuse
Time: 2007/10/10 6:42:39 - foodqs
   CHINA has put narcotic and psychotropic drugs under real-time monitoring to ensure the drugs, which can cause dependency by patients, won't be abused, a spokeswoman for China's drug watchdog has said.

Yan Jiangying, spokeswoman for the State Food and Drug Administration, said on Monday the real-time monitor has been placed on the manufacturing, supply, distribution and inventory of anesthetic and psychotropic drugs nationwide.

The SFDA has had all information of narcotics and first-grade psychotropics in hand through a network covering all the provincial and municipal-level drug administrative departments, Yan said.

Psychotropic drugs in China fall into two categories. The first covers 47 types of drugs, including caffeine, cathinone and metamphetamine. The second category includes 72 types, such as diazepam and barbital.

Drugs, such as dolantin, caffeine and diazepam, if properly used, can assist in medical treatment to improve people's health, however, they can also be abused and lead to mental and physical problems, she said.

China will continue to strengthen monitoring of the production and distribution of special drugs, including medical toxic drugs, radioactive drugs, pharmaceutical precursor chemicals, dopes, as well as narcotics and psychotropics, due to their potential for abuse, she said.

The Office of the State Council Leading Group on Product Quality and Food Safety will carry out an inspection of the drug market in 12 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities.
