The Health Ministry recalled over a dozen kinds of medication late last month after they were discovered to be counterfeit, but many of the fake medications are still circulating in the market, according to a prominent health industry figure.According to decision 1/300 issued on Jan. 28, 13 types of drugs were singled out. According to Sukkarieh, the fake drugs are able to enter the country due to weak regulations and border control. The central lab, where drugs are supposed to be tested by law, is also largely inactive, he said. Sukkarieh also said that there were many other types of faulty medication being sold in pharmacies, including hormonal drugs, anti-coagulants and antibiotics.
