Algocalmin and other drugs containing metamizole will only be available on prescription by August 2011, Romania’s National Medicine Agency said Monday.

Metamizole may cause agranulocytosis, an acute condition involving a severe and dangerous lowered white blood cell count. People with this condition are at very high risk of serious infections due to their suppressed immune system.
