Drug usage survey in a selected population
K Krishnaswamy, G Radhaiah, TC Raghuram
Studies on drug utilisation pattern are often confined to developed countries. However, such studies are required for a healthy medical, pharmaceutical and socio-economic pattern in drug utilisation.
The results of a survey on drug usage in a small sample of 812 persons indicate that more health care facilities are required. Though the participants involved in the study were literate, the survey revealed that a high proportion do not have correct concept of drugs and medicaments. vitamins/minerals, supplements and dosage schedules. The study clearly indicates the need for a detailed and large scale survey in different segments of our population.
