In the second and third readings, the law "On biological safety" was adopted, which, among other things, will toughen the supervision of the circulation of antibiotics and antiparasitic agents. As a reminder, in 2017, the Administrative Code increased fines for free dispensing of prescription drugs for pharmacies and their employees. A pharmacist now runs the risk of paying from 5 to 10 thousand rubles for an oversight (previously the fine was 1.5-3 thousand), an official - up to 30 thousand, and a legal entity - up to 150 thousand. In this case, the pharmacy can be closed for up to 90 days, wrote "Pharmvestnik". Why don't antibiotics help? Says by a physician-therapist Now doctors are also in the area of ​​responsibility. Until now, there have been a number of complaints from pharmacy chains that doctors do not issue prescriptions properly. The doctor will not be able to prescribe a drug that could develop resistance if the patient's diagnosis has not been clinically confirmed. The new rules are expected to come into force on January 1, 2022. “When the sale of antibiotics jumps dozens of times, that even the pharmaceutical industry cannot cope with production volumes, this is not normal,” TASS quotes one of the authors of the law, a member of the State Duma Committee on Health Protection, Alexander Petrov. It became clear how a couple of bacteria react to antibiotics. In accordance with the law, a group of such medicines will be approved, which will be regulated, although not in the same way as psychotropic ones, but more strictly than now. The same law will apply to veterinary pharmacy. It is noted that the normative document will be the cornerstone: it defines the concepts and attitudes on which new standards will be strung in the future. Uncontrolled intake of antibiotics, antifungal and antiparasitic agents in the future threatens not only a particular patient, but also the whole of humanity, since bacteria, fungi and parasites will adapt - the treatment will cease to be effective.
