    Physicians warn against taking NRICM101 formula without a prescription (2022/05/13)

    NRICM101 is a traditional Chinese medicine formula that's shown promise in preventing severe COVID illness. But doctors are now warning against taking it without a prescription. At a press conference on Friday, TCM practitioners said that the formula is not one-size-fits-all, that it often needs to be customized to suit the individual patient. They urged people not to buy the formula online, noting that it's illegal to do so without a prescription.

    Assorted herbal remedies are displayed at this press conference held by a lawmaker and the Taipei Chinese Medicine Association. Amid reports of its efficacy against COVID-19, the NRICM101 herbal formula has soared in popularity. It’s being sold online for NT$5,000 and above – at many times its original price. But at Friday’s press conference, doctors warned that buying it online is illegal without a doctor’s prescription.

    The NRICM101 formula is medication that should be prescribed by a doctor. Commercial pharmacies cannot sell it without authorization. It is illegal to sell it without authorization. It’s not a health food. There are many symptoms that a COVID patient might have – some have a sore throat, some have nasal congestion, some experience dizziness, and some develop aches all over their body. This can only be dealt with through a dialectical consultation with a professional physician.

    At the press conference, traditional Chinese medicine practitioners said prescriptions should be adjusted based on each patient’s constitution and symptoms. They said a fixed NRICM101 formula might produce different results for different people. Taiwan has a robust TCM network, with more than 1,000 clinics in Taipei City alone. Doctors said that confirmed COVID patients should speak with a TCM practitioner online, in order to obtain a prescription.

    The resources available include “scientific” preparations of herbal formulas, NHI teleconferencing, and informative videos. We can support your treatment. Going from a positive to a negative can happen very quickly. We have a great deal of experience, we don’t take a rushed approach, and we don’t just have a fixed formula on hand. We have many variations of that formula. For example, say that you have more phlegm than other people do. We will prescribe auxiliary drugs to relieve the phlegm.

    Mark Ho
    DPP lawmaker
    If you hoard the NRICM101 formula in your home, and you’re a person with a relatively weak constitution, you might experience some upset after taking it. There might be some after-effects that we’re not yet clear on. So if you want to take this formula, you should get it through a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner.

    Amid a surging epidemic, the lawmaker said people should seek out medical professionals, instead of taking therapies that may do more harm than good.

    "清冠一號"私賣喊價上萬 醫:藥材充足請看診開藥

    本土疫情延燒,坊間流傳國產中藥"清冠一號"能有效治療新冠肺炎,造成價格不斷哄抬,有人上網拍賣甚至喊價數萬元,中醫師指出,他們開藥都是依照病患體質、症狀,同款清冠一號,不同的人吃,效果也不同,國內中醫量能跟藥材都很充足,民眾確診想吃藥緩解,也能透過視訊問診,請醫師開藥。

    立委找中醫師公會開記者會,桌上擺放著滿滿的中藥材,因為近來坊間流傳國產中藥"清冠一號"對新冠肺炎有奇效,造成哄抬,網拍有人喊價5000、甚至數萬元,是原價的好幾倍,但未經醫師開處方,民眾私自買賣,已觸犯藥事法。

    [[台北市中醫公會理事長 林源泉]]
    “清冠是屬於醫師處方用藥,一般民間藥房不可以私自販售,私自販售不合法,這不是健康食品。確診者症狀非常多,有的喉嚨痛,有的鼻塞,有的頭暈,有的全身痠痛,這要專業醫師辯證論證才可以處理。”

    中醫師強調,他們看診會依照患者體質、症狀,用不同的藥材,合成一個處方,同一款清冠一號,每個人服用後效果不會完全相同,目前全台中醫量能充足,光是台北市就有1000多家診所,民眾若確診,可透過視訊問診的方式請醫師開藥方。

    [[北市中醫公會副理事長 沈瑞斌]]
    “包括科學中藥、健保視訊、中藥影片,我們幫大家治療,轉陰速度相當快。我們經驗值很高,不是倉促上路,不是只有一個藥方可用,我們有非常多藥方能用,比如你今天痰比別人多,那我們就會下比較多其它輔助化痰藥。”

    [[立委(民) 何志偉]]
    “沒事你囤清冠一號放家裡,如果你體質本來就比較不OK的人,吃了之後,不適合的話,可能有些狀況我們不清楚,要用藥一定要經過中醫。”

    本土疫情延燒,立委呼籲民眾用藥前一定要經過專業醫師,一時心急亂吃,只怕對健康造成更不利影響。
