    About two to four weeks before the price control of some drugs came in to effect there was a price increase on some drugs by supplying companies.That is the bitter truth.Now some prices are infact reduced.Patients know what is happening as they have been buying drugs. via DM Android App

    For senior citizens buying medication from Osu Sala is much cheaper and they should have more outlets in the country as other pharmacies are charging higher prices.TMAC
