As election fever grips the country, Namo and Ragaflam tablets, named after BJP's Narendra Modi and Congress's Rahul Gandhi, are crowding pharmacy shelves. Neither Modi nor Rahul may have all the answers to what ails the nation, but generic drugs named after them are certainly getting people's votes.
While Namo tablets are a composition of nimuslide and paracetamol that treat fever and headache, Ragaflam with its mix of dicoflenac and paracetamol gives quick relief from pain. A pharmaceutical executive said 20 lakh Namo and Raga tablets have been distributed in the last few weeks and there is a growing demand for these from drugstores.
