If you are looking for the status of Lianhua Qingwen, the Dangerous Drugs Board set out Board Regulations for it and published it this year. They have deliberated about it for a few months, and with record cases surging per day this week, it would be something good to have as an herbal solution for symptoms like fever, sore throat, cough, stuffy or runny nose, aversion to cold, muscle soreness, headache and wheezing. Fine print is here:
What this means is that S2 prescription from doctors to get Lianhua Qingwen are not required. This is traditional chinese medicine brought to the country by Phil. Archipelago Intl. Trading Corp. They are still awaiting for it to be re-classified to an "over the counter" product by FDA. Here's their FDA registration.
Currently this is being sold in the market for Php 288.00 per box of 24 capsules. With the DDB decision, the regulation of it takes effect 15 days after publication, which in their case is March 12th of 2021. Lianhua Qingwen is now available in Mercury Drug branches and other leading pharmacies nationwide.
If you would like to know more about Lianhua Qungwen and its benefits, you may visit their official website www.philarchipelago.com or call them via (02) 8361-7491 to 98 loc. 844. Ask your doctor if this could help you. It may be a good thing to do that first before taking anything orally.
