As per Medical Council of India's notice it asks doctors to prescribe medicines by their generic names. The notice states that every physician should prescribe drugs with generic names legibly, preferably in capital letters, and ensure that there is a rational prescription and use of drugs. However, The MCI notice doesn’t say that doctors should not write brand names, it says that physicians ‘should’ mention generic names. People might be interpreting this incorrectly.
I am sharing these prescriptions that were forwarded to me. These prescriptions have branded names but along with it are also mentioned their generic names. I plan to take up this methodology to follow the MCI notice, how will you be writing your prescription henceforth?
