The List of Drugs Prohibited for Advertising, Which Are Released Without a Prescription with amendments added in accordance with the Order of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine № 1408 (dated February 14, 2017) comes into force on February 16, 2018[1].

The List included Adeno-Ritz (Georgia), ANDIPHEN IC (Ukraine), Valocordin (Germany), and others.
