Glenmark said Saturday that the drug will be sold in a strip of 34 tablets with a dose strength of 200 mg for a maximum course of 14 days. The drug is priced at Rs 3,500, approximately Rs 103 per tablet.
Found from another article

Glenmark's FabiFlu approved for COVID-19 treatment in India; priced at Rs 103 a tablet

Priced at Rs 3,500 for a pack of 34 tablets (Rs 103 per tablet), the dosage is 200 mg X 9 tablets on the day one and 200 mg X 4 tablets a day for 14 days of the treatment.
This comes out to ₹ 6,695.

I am pretty sure the government is not going to subsidise it.

It's worse.

Looks like the above article had a typo. Confirmed the following from two websites. lol


Fabiflu, available as a 200 mg tablet, has been priced at Rs 103 per tablet. A strip of 34 tablets will cost Rs 3,500 to the patients. The recommended dosage duration has been fixed for 14 days. On day 1, a dose of 1,800 mg twice a day is recommended, followed by 800 mg twice a day from day 2 up to 14th day. The full 14 day treatment cycle will cost Rs 14,000 to patients.
According to me, the cost comes to ₹12, 566 but chalo ... nice round off till 14k.

Chinese trial's issue: The limitation of this study was that it was not randomized double-blinded and placebo-controlled.

Russia also did their own trial but have approved mid-stage. Their trial was going to end around December.

Glenmark's trial in India - was supposed to finish in July/August. Approved early?

Itlay also started a trial but with a giant warning - that evidence in support of the drug is scant.

Only 1 hospital in the US is doing a small trial. Another one started in London.

let's not forget that government is still charging 18% gst on medicines.

looks like 0-18% on different categories.


Nil GST on Medicines used during Hospitalization
i am guessing you are not paying less money for medicines when you are hospitalized compared to when you are not 🤔
