I am advised to obtain an essentially certificate for the drugs Jalra 50 mg twice a day and Lamosyn 100 mg twice a day which have to be used along with other drugs used to control diabetes. When the drugs are so important to control the diseases why cannot they be provided by CGHS and why essentiality certificate from NIMS or Gandhi Hospital at Hyderabad are insisted. Is there any form to obtain the essentially certificate?
