Experts believe that Panadol\’s excessive demand, which has hindered production, is the main cause of the current scarcity.

According to journalist Ali Khizar, GSK produces more than 450 million Panadol tablets each month. The corporation has reduced output to a minimum since its manufacturing costs are higher than the Maximum Retail Price (MRP) established by the government, leading to its scarcity.
