Book Description :

This book tries to determine patients’ perspectives regarding OTC medication, analyses incidence of irresponsible medication, and shows reasons for predisposing factors as well. Three quarter of the participants in this study were knowledgeable about the potential for abuse of some OTC drugs and most named analgesics as the most liable for abuse. Almost one third of the participants came across cases of OTC abuse. Participants were positive towards the health care being provided by their local pharmacy. They felt that pharmacists play an important role in providing advice on OTC medicines use. The OTC drug abuse problem needs to be tackled urgently as shown by the number of participants witnessing such abuse. Patients with higher managerial, administrative and professional occupations were more likely to follow the directions on the packet. Patients with manual occupations were more likely to seek the advice of a pharmacist rather than a doctor if a given OTC product did not work within a recommended time period.

Investment in R&D over the past several decades has produced many valuable new drug therapies that have made it possible to treat major illnesses that were not treated previously. Spending on prescription drugs became the fastest-growing category of total spending on health care in the U.S. Between 1994 and 2004, real spending on prescription drugs rose at an average annual rate of 11%, compared with 3% for hospital care and 4% for physicians¿ services.
