JMA calls for reclassifying antibiotics as prescription-only drugs
The Jordan Medical Association (JMA) is calling on the authorities to regulate the sale of antibiotics and list them as prescriptions instead of over-the-counter medication.
JMA President Zeyad Al Zu’bi told The Jordan Times that the sharp increase in antibiotic consumption has led the association to demand that the Jordan Food and Drug Association (JFDA) form a committee consisting of doctors, pharmacists, JFDA representatives and pharmaceutical industry experts to enforce limits on antibiotics and reclassify them as prescription medications.
