A prescription drug is a licensed medicine which needs a medical prescription before it can be acquired. Prescription medicines are legalized by the legislation. The term is used to differentiate it from over-the-counter drugs that can be obtained without a prescription. There are different regulatory bodies that regulate prescription drugs all over the world. These consist of Regulation in United States Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act The safety and efficiency of prescription drugs in the US is regulated by the federal Prescription Drug Marketing Act of 1987. The Food (FDA) is charged with implementing this law. Regulation in United Kingdom In the United Kingdom the Medicines Act 1968 governs the manufacture and supply of three categories of medicine. Most prescriptions in the UK are NHS prescriptions, subject to a standard charge unrelated to what is dispensed. Regulation in Australia In Australia the Standard for the Uniform Scheduling of Medicines and Poisons, abbreviated SUSMP which governs the manufacture and supply of drugs. Many prescriptions issued by health practitioners in Australia are covered by the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme, a scheme that provides support financially prescription drugs to residents of Australia to ensure that all Australians have affordable and reliable access to a wide collection of necessary medicines. Prescription drugs are the third most generally abused category of drugs, behind alcohol and marijuana and ahead of cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine. Some prescription drugs can become fanaticized, particularly when used in a manner inconsistent with their classification by someone other than the patient for whom they were prescribed, or when in use in a method or dosage other than prescribed. Some examples of prescription drugs include
1. Hydrocodone (combined with acetaminophen)
2. Simvastatin, a cholesterol-lowering statin drug
3. Lisinopril, a blood pressure drug
4. levothyroxine sodium, synthetic thyroid hormone
5. Amlodipine besylate, an angina/blood pressure drug omeprazole, an antacid drug. 6. Azithromycin an antibiotic
7. Amoxicillin an antibiotic
8. Metformin, a diabetes drug

Scope and Importance:
Medicines should be prescribed only when they are necessary for treatments following clear diagnosis. Not all patients or conditions need prescriptions for medicines. In certain conditions simple advice and general measures may be more suitable. For a patient to consistently adhere to long term pharmacotherapy requires integration of the regimen into his or her daily life style. Contemporary medicine applies genetics, biomedical research, medical technology and biomedical sciences, for diagnosing, treating, and preventing injury and disease through medication or surgery. Potentially toxic drugs, drugs with narrow therapeutic indices and those with variable pharmacokinetics should be monitored regularly to optimize dosing, obtain maximum therapeutic effect, limit toxicity and assess compliance.
Health spending nationwide was projected to have reached $3.1 trillion last year, a 5.5 percent increase over 2013. It marked the first time since 2007 that the rate of increase exceeded 5 percent. Budget analysts attribute the growth in part to the development of new medications, which caused a 12.6 percent increase in prescription drug spending – significantly higher than the 2.5 percent growth seen in 2013. The sharp rise came after years in which the shift from brand-name medications to less expensive generic drugs had driven rates lower. Four of the costly new drugs that reached the market in 2014 – including Sovaldi, which runs $1,000 a pill, or $84,000 for a typical 12-week course of treatment – received approval from the FDA for the treatment of hepatitis C, a disease of the liver that can require a transplant if it turns into a chronic infection. Drugs to treat cancer and multiple sclerosis had a smaller impact.
