Are biocobal and diacobal similar drugs?
Q: I have been prescribed by a psychiatrist to take Biocobal plus one everyday (he advised that this will help reduce the bad effect of alcohol). But by mistake, the pharmacist has given me Diacobal plus. This pharmacy is far away from my home. Is it Ok to take this Diacobal plus for the same purpose?
A:Biocobal and Diacobal are the brand names. Both contain vitamins and are similar manufactured by the same company. Both the brands do not appear on the international databank of quality products. Both the products do not have any role in eliminating the harmful effects of alcohol. Both are very expensive compared to standard, equivalent products of quality manufacturers.
