The number of people vaccinated against COVID-19 surpassed 10 million as of the 10th. As the speed of vaccination increases, more and more people are looking for acetaminophen-based antipyretics.
Acetaminophen antipyretics are used to relieve side effects such as fever, pain, and chills after vaccination.
As a result, advertisements selling and arranging acetaminophen antipyretic drugs appeared online, and the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety began an intensive check on it.
Individual websites and open markets that can be accessed by general consumers through search, such as overseas purchasing agency, overseas direct purchase, and joint purchase through personal blogs, etc., are subject to inspection. Also check to provide links to sales sites through personal websites or to share online purchase methods.
The Ministry of Food and Drug Safety urged the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety to not purchase drugs purchased online, as safety and effectiveness have not been confirmed, and deterioration or contamination may occur during distribution.
Currently, acetaminophen single ingredient drugs approved as over-the-counter drugs by the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety are 70, including Chong Kun Dang’s Penzal, Hanmi Pharm’s Suspen, Green Cross’s Taminophen, Bukwang’s Tarcenol, and Ilyang’s Clintal, in addition to Tylenol from Janssen Korea. reach These products can be easily purchased at pharmacies if necessary, so do not buy drugs that are illegally advertised or sold online.
