GlaxoSmithKline Stops Sale of Crocin Cold & Flu Drug

After the Indian government has banned the sale of fixed dose combination drugs (FDCs) like Corex, Phensedyl and Vicks Action 500 Extra, the pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline has announced that it has stopped invoicing of Crocin Cold & Flu.

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