In 2018 the public health system in Chile bought 230 million units of acetaminophen. The drug was distributed free of charge to patients in public hospitals and medical facilities.
A news segment broadcast on popular television network Chilevisión (CHV) noted the results of an American research piece titled “A social painkiller? Paracetamol reduces positive empathy”. The study, led by Ohio professor Dominik Mischkowski, explored the unwanted side effects of acetaminophen - such as temporarily reduced empathy and pleasure.
In 2019 The National Health Fund (Fonasa) announced a plan to reduce the prices of more than 2,000 medications, allowing customers to purchase them from OTC suppliers at lowered prices. Most of the products with prices reduced by chemists/pharmacies were analgesics, antiallergics and vitamins.
In 2019 competition was tough for private label. Laboratories and brands directly hit private label by highlighting the benefits of buying branded medication.
In 2019 a 23-year-old man was arrested for selling 80 boxes of medication at a fair in Nonguén, Chile. Both Rx and OTC medication were hit by the illegal sales, with authorities warning the public not to purchase these drugs - they did not comply with regulations, had inadequate storage conditions and were from unknown sources.
As a result of the merger between GSK and Pfizer, Anadin will exit analgesics in 2020. GSK and Pfizer announced in late-2018 that their joint venture will create a premier global consumer healthcare company.
