Stop Buying These Drugs, NAFDAC Has Banned Them.

Drugs are very important in the quest for maintaining good health. Without the use of drugs, life can be very tedious to maintain as quick solutions or first aids may not be achievable. However, some drugs have been discovered to be harmful to human health rather than useful. It is with this reason that the food and drug governing body has decided to terminate the sale and use of some drugs. According to a publication on the NAFDAC official website, these drugs have been banned.

Drugs for human health include the following
