Murah Meriah, Po Chai Laris Manis di Indonesia

Jakarta – Obat sakit perut Po Chai yang dilarang beredar di Hong Kong dan Singapura ternyata laris manis di Indonesia. Khasiatnya yang manjur serta harganya yang murah meriah membuat obat ini laku keras di pasaran.

“Obat ini sudah lama. Nggak ada yang komplain kok dan laris,” kata salah satu pemilik apotik di kompleks Pasar Mayestik saat ditemui detikcom, Jakarta, Selasa (30/3/2010).

Wanita yang enggan disebutkan namanya tersebut menjelaskan, pil Po Chai bisa dibeli eceran maupun paket. Jika membeli eceran, per botol seharga Rp 2.500. Namun konsumen harus merogoh kocek Rp 25.000 jika hendak beli satu kotak. Satu kotak berjumlah 10 botol.

Sementara pemilik apotik lainnya di Pasar Mayestik menambahkan, meski memiliki banyak khasiat, namun Po Chai lebih terkenal sebagai pil sakit perut atau diare.

“Ini lebih ke diare, mencret-mencret bisa,” kata pria yang juga enggan disebut namanya tersebut.

Pil Po Chai dikemas dalam botol kecil sebesar jari kelingking. Di dalamnya terdapat puluhan pil kecil berwarna coklat. Cara minumnya langsung diminum semuanya sekali minum. Sehari dianjurkan tiga kali.

“Tapi kalau minum sebotol sudah enakan, ya nggak usah dilanjutin,” ujarnya.

Pantauan detikcom, Selasa (30/3/2010), obat yang bebas diperjualbelikan di toko obat itu bernomor registrasi POM TI 004400941 yang didistribusikan oleh PT Perdana Sakti Indonesia. Penelusuran detikcom, perusahaan tersebut beralamat di Jl Raya Hanyawar Km 14, Sukanagalih-Pacet, Cianjur, Jawa Barat.

Para penjual obat Po Chai tidak tahu menahu jika di Singapura dan Hong Kong, obat ini sudah ditarik dari peredaran. Namun jika nanti dilarang, mereka pun siap menarik Po Chai.

“Kalau memang disuruh ditarik pasti kami tarik. Tapi ini belum ada perintah ditarik kok,” kata salah satu pemilik apotik di kompleks Pasar Mayestik saat ditemui detikcom, Selasa (30/3/2010).

Pil Po Chai dikemas dalam botol kecil sebesar jari kelingking. Di dalamnya terdapat puluhan pil kecil berwarna coklat. Cara minumnya langsung diminum semuanya sekali minum. Sehari dianjurkan tiga kali.

“Tapi selama ini nggak ada yang komplain,” imbuhnya.

Singapura Juga Tarik Obat Po Chai
Rita Uli Hutapea – detikNews

HSA.gov.sg Singapura – Selain Hong Kong, otoritas Singapura juga telah menarik obat sakit perut Po Chai Pills. Otoritas Sains Kesehatan atau Health Sciences Authority (HSA) Singapura telah mengumumkan penarikan Po Chai Pills (bentuk kapsul).

Alasannya, zat-zat berbahaya phenolphthalein dan sibutramine ditemukan dalam obat diare ngetop itu. Phenolphthalein merupakan zat penyebab penyakit kanker sedangkan sibutramine merupakan obat antiobesitas berbahaya. Kedua zat tersebut bisa menyerang ketahanan tubuh terutama anak-anak dan para lanjut usia.

Namun untuk Singapura, hanya Po Chai Pills bentuk kapsul dengan nomor dagang 21217 (tanggal kadaluarsa 6-2012) yang ditarik dari peredaran. Demikian seperti diberitakan HSA Singapura dalam situsnya, hsa.gov.sg.

Sedangkan otoritas Hong Kong menarik Po Chai Pills dalam bentuk kapsul dan botol.

Di Indonesia, Po Chai juga beredar luas. Belum diketahui apakah obat sakit perut itu dilarang atau tidak.

Hong Kong: Po Chai Pills manufacturer ordered to report recall to DH
By sinha on March 25, 2010

In response to media enquiries, a spokesman for the Department of Health (DH) said today (March 25) that the Department has directed Li Chung Shing Tong (Holdings) Ltd HK, a licensed manufacturer of proprietary Chinese medicine, to submit progress reports on recall of its two forms of Po Chai Pills which is under close monitoring by the department.

Yesterday, DH ordered that all the companys productions, Po Chai Pills Capsule Form and Po Chai Pills Bottle Form, be recalled from local retail outlets and consumers after it learnt that the former was detected by the Singaporean authority to contain the banned cancer-causing drug phenolphthalein and the anti-obesity drug sibutramine.In Singapore, a recall of the capsule has been ordered since March 8, although it was only notified to DH yesterday.

DH officials immediately conducted field investigation in the company yesterday.Staff was examined, documents were searched and products were seized for analysis.

Findings in hand thus far suggested the source of contamination likely to be in one batch of powder form raw materials used to fill capsules.It was bought for the first time from a new source in the Mainland in May 2008.

A department spokesman said, We understand that two batches of capsules had been produced using the suspicious set of raw materials.One batch (no. 21217) was exported to Singapore, while the other batch (no. 21133) was supplied to Hong Kong and Macao markets.

These are also the only three places in which the capsule form is marketed.

Testing by Government Laboratory on samples from both batches confirmed the detection of phenolphthalein and sibutramine.

DH inspectors also found that the manufacturer had actually initiated recall from the retailers on its own accord earlier on in January, after discovering the presence of the two western pharmaceutical ingredients through its own testing.However, the action was not reported to the Department.Neither had the March 8 recall order from the Singaporean authority been made known to DH despite this being stated in the Practising Guildelines For Manufacturers of Proprietary Chinese Medicines.

The spokesman explained that the recall of all products by Li Chung Shing Tong, comprising all batches of capsule form and pills bottle form, is a precautionary but necessary measure for best protection of Hong Kongs public health because phenolphthalein and sibutramine are potent drugs with known serious side effects.Moreover, the products are widely and commonly used by our community, with patrons from vulnerable groups including children and the elderly.

The manufacturer has been barred from supplying further stocks of any of its products to the market until it can prove to DHs satisfaction that it has adequate control over the entire production process, particularly with respect to the safety and quality of raw materials used.

We are working closely with our Mainland and Singaporean counterparts so as to gain a complete picture of the matter, he said.

Investigation continues.
