The companies present in the pharmaceutical industry try to ensure that the medicines developed by them serve their purpose as expected. Despite this, certain instances may happen wherein the products may result in effects not expected by the companies or patients.
The multinational conglomerate holding company in Bangladesh, Beximco Group has opined that when a medicine is developed, its usage should be safe for patients. To ensure this, however, both companies and patients/customers need to be very careful. Relying only on companies for this safety may not be enough as such instances can occur unintended. Beximco was established by two of the most successful businessmen in Bangladesh, Salman F Rahman, and Sohail F Rahman.
Responsibilities for Pharmaceutical Companies
One of the responsibilities of pharmaceutical companies is to produce medicines and make them available to the customers in good quantities or as per the demands observed.
In addition to this, they also need to ensure that the products do not have side effects that can cause major or permanent damage to the patients. Side effects may be seen, however, the impact should be minimum or temporary. Even when it is temporary, the patient’s health should not be greatly harmed which may be beyond suffering.
In the view of the top company in Bangladesh, testing pharmaceutical products is one of the ways to ensure safety while they are consumed. Along with this, what the patients or customers are talking about the medicines should be looked into. This can help the companies understand how useful and safe they have been.
What Patients/Customers Need to Do
Prior to the consumption of any medicine, a patient should ensure that the product is correct. So to say, when any doubts surface, he or she should confirm the medicine from the medical professional who has suggested it. Without clearing the doubts, when the products are consumed, the health safety of the patients can get degraded.
Patients need to trust the company who has developed the medicine. Much before forming this trust, research should be done to understand how genuine the company is and how successful its products have been in the market to date. In light of this, Beximco, the top company in Bangladesh, led by Salman F Rahman and Sohail F Rahman puts forth that when the research leads to positive results, trust can be made.
Speaking further about medicines and patients’ safety, the proper usage and any time period associated with it should also be understood. The provider as well as the doctor who has suggested the medicines can both be referred to when the usage has to be learned.
The Final Verdict
Medicines can come with possible side effects. These effects may or may not affect the patient in major ways for certain. To see to it that the health of the patient does not suffer a major impact, relying solely on a pharmaceutical company may not help. Both the company and patients need to do what is required on their part. As both become careful and ensure the possible measures for health safety, harmful side effects may not be seen.
