2. Why is My Medicine’s Composition not found?

There are cases when the Generic composition of the trade name you enter is not found. While MyOPD has a drug list of around 300,000 medicines, it can still happen.

Below are common reasons why the composition is not found:

  1. Over the counter (OTC) medicines are not a part of our medicine database. These are medicines that typically do not require a Doctor’s prescription.
  2. Multi-vitamins, wellness products, wellness creams, baby formula’s are usually OTC drugs that do not require a Doctor’s prescription.
  3. Spelling mistake while entering Trade names.
  4. A recently introduced Trade Name which is not yet a part of our medicine database.
  5. Ayurvedic medicines
  6. Homeopathic medicines
