KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah Pharmaceutical Society (SPS) urges the public to bring their MyKad or equivalent identification documents (passport, army and police card) when purchasing controlled medicines in pharmacies throughout Sabah.
Pharmacists now are required by law to record additional details obtained from MyKad for purchase of special category of controlled medicines on top of the usual name and address.
SPS president Samsudin B Ahmad said in a statement that effective Jan 1, pseudoephedrine-containing medicines falls under this category. Most medications for the treatment of cold and flu symptoms contain pseudoephedrine.
Prior to that, codeine and dextromethorphan also require patients to produce their MyKad.
“Normally, only details such as name and address of patients are required to be recorded into the prescription book. However, some categories of medicines need the MyKad number. Across the board, it’s just easier to produce MyKad for all the required details,” he said.
PETALING JAYA: The MyKad will be more durable and of better quality after a scheduled upgrade in July, said the Home Ministry.“We are taking the matter very seriously and will ensure that the chip’s quality is improved,” Deputy Minister Datuk Wira Abu Seman Yusop said in an interview. – Read More
