The Ministry of Health confirms there is a shortage of medicines, but guarantees the replacement in two weeks

Families with patients suffering from Epilepsy complain about the lack of medication for more than 4 months. These are drugs that are in short supply in public and private pharmacies.

For some, the alternative is plants, but with little effectiveness.

Our report went through some public pharmacies and found that for months they have not received Carbamazepine and clonazepam, essential for controlling the disease.

Epilepsy is a disease in which for a certain period of time, there is a malfunction of the brain, caused by the emission of incorrect signals, discharges or electrical impulses emitted by neurons, which are the cells that are part of the brain. 

When a person has epilepsy, he has various seizures, which are related to the extent of incorrect discharges.

Our report contacted the Ministry of Health, which confirmed there was a rupture, but guarantees the replacement in two weeks.

In relation to other drugs, the Medicines and Medical Articles Center guarantees stability in the distribution chain.
