Sharukh Hossain*, Ayub Hossain, Harul-Al- Rashid and Dr. Shiv Kumar Shete

ABSTRACT

The main aim of the study was to analyze the current prescribing trends and rationality of fixed dose combinations. The therapy with FDCs reduce the polypharmacy or pill burden, which in turn can improve patient compliance. However, the rationality and justification of their uses always raises doubt and it can lead to controversial usage of drugs. Most commonly, the clinicians obtain information from the medical representatives apart from obtaining the information through peer group, resources like MIMS, CIMS, and continuing medical education programs. Insufficient or often biased information can lead to inappropriateness in the use of drugs. Strengthening of the regulatory guidelines, provision of continued updated unbiased information about the drug products and their safety should help in minimizing the inappropriate and irrational use of drugs. Awareness and education about irrational FDCs, FDCs containing banned or controversial ingredients will help develop rational prescribing practices among prescribers. Rational combination of drugs to formulate FDCs and the appropriate use of FDCs can definitely improve adherence to the therapy, safety, and reduce the cost of therapy. However, efforts to increase awareness regarding the correct use of FDCs should be a constant objective for the pharmacists.

Keywords: Current Prescribing Trends, Rationality of fixed dose, South Indian Multi Specialty Hospital, Observational Study.
