Adulterated Lyrica Leads To Death, MOI Warns
Category: Crime News

To raise the level of societal awareness about the seriousness of drugs and psychotropic substances, especially among young people, the Ministry of Interior Public Relations and Security Media Department has warned against consuming adulterated Lyrica pills that contain phenacetin — phenacetin is a pain-relieving and fever-reducing drug.

Based on a large number of findings by the Criminal Evidence Department Laboratories, it was concluded that these are not Lyrica capsules, but rather capsules containing phenacetin, which is banned in human and veterinary medicine. It has been in medical use since the seventies because it is highly toxic and carcinogenic, reports a local Arabic daily.

Phenacetin was widely used after its introduction in 1887. It was withdrawn from medicinal use as dangerous from the 1970s (withdrawn in Canada in 1973 and by the US Food and Drug Administration in 1983).

Furthermore, these substances cause the blood to be unable to carry oxygen, causing damage to the heart muscle as well as breathing problems and death.
