The change in the rules for purchasing the drug Tamiflu, used to treat influenza A (H1N1) swine flu has not increased the demand for the drug in pharmacies in Brasilia. The Ministry of Health withdrew yesterday (11) the drug from the list of substances subject to special control with controlled sales to facilitate people's access to the medicine.

Even with the arrival of winter and the growth of the infections in the country of Brazil Agency survey revealed that the stock remains the same product in pharmacies in the capital.

The pharmacy manager Bruno Gouveia said the sale of the antiviral oseltamivir [name of active ingredient in Tamiflu] remains stable, but he emphasizes that, if necessary, the stock will be expanded. We've been waiting for this flow increase. While demand is thus the product will be paradinho here in stock, but if you need, we are prepared, he said.

The public health system of the Federal District also offers the medication in most health centers.

Since vaccination against influenza is intended only to pregnant women, elderly and children under two years. A spokesperson for the Department of Health advises that DF's product availability and who is part of the audience can look up any health center for vaccination.
