ABSTRACT

A pregnant woman needs the utmost care, for well-being of both mother and the child. It is a special physiological condition in which the drug use should be done with more precaution. There is a significant variation in overall medication use and use of drugs with potential risk in pregnancy. Hence, prescription pattern studies should be done on regular basis on such special populations. A prospective, cross-sectional study carried out in obstetrics and gynecology department for 6 months. A total of 218 prescriptions were analysed during this period of time. The mean age of the patients was 32.88 ± 7.18 (Mean ± SD) years. Nutritional supplements were the most prescribed class of drugs. Amoxicillin with clavulanic acid was the most prescribed antibiotic to the patients. This study helps us to focus on the deviation from rational prescribing standards by prescribers. Such periodic evaluation may lead to rational practice and hence improves the quality of prescription.

Keywords: Prescription pattern, Gynaecology, Female patient.
