Priced at 25 baht (80 US cents) per pill, Thailand’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that it will be ten times cheaper than the full-priced actual drug.

“This measure will solve widespread production of fake drugs by increasing accessibility to the legal version,” News.com.au quoted FDA secretary general Pipat Yingseree, as saying in a statement.

The release also said that Pfizer had since looked to discount its pills by about 30 percent to “cooperate with the government on curbing fake drugs.”

“Pfizer is selling at a discount to be able to compete with our Sidegra,” an official at the state-run Government Pharmaceutical Organisation, which is producing the drug, said.
