The company will not sell the Crocin Cold & Flu tablet but other drugs under the same brand will be available at stores.

"While the product may still be available in stores, GSK has stopped invoicing it," an official aware of the developments said.

On march 12, the government issued a notification banning 350 FDC's and it has now extended the ban to common medicines such as Crocin Cold and Flu, D-Cold Total, Sumo, Gastrogyl, Chericof, Nasivion, Nimulid, Dolo, Decoff, O2 and Oflox.
