The ministry said that a total of 327 medicines are on the list, and that it mainly includes cold medicines and anesthetics.

According to the order, the ministry decided to put a medicine on the list if it is sold only under doctors’ prescriptions, if it is for treating only children up to 12 years old, or if the medicine contains drugs, psychotropic substances and precursors.

The medicine could be put on the list if its application could cause addiction to the medicine, which is pointed out in the prescribing information, apart from medicine for external application.
