Prescription Medicines


As per available reports about 65relevant journals, 159 Conferences, 395 workshops are presently dedicated exclusively to Prescription Medicines and about 5000 articles are being published on Prescription Medicines.

A prescription is a pharmaceutical drug that legally requires a medical prescription to be dispensed. In contrast, over can be obtained without a prescription. A Prescription Medicine is a licensed medicine that is regulated by legislation to require a medical prescription before it can be obtained. The term is used to distinguish it from over-the-counter drugs that can be obtained without a prescription. Different jurisdictions have different definitions of what constitutes a prescription drug. "Rx" is often used as a short form for prescription drug in North America. It is an abbreviation for the Latin "recipe", an imperative form of "recipere", meaning "take". Prescription drugs are often dispensed together with a monograph that gives detailed information about the drug. If you take a medicine in a way that is different from what the doctor prescribed, it is called prescription drug abuse. It could be, taking a medicine that was prescribed for someone else. Taking a larger dose than you are supposed to. Taking the medicine in a different way than you are supposed to. This might be crushing tablets and then snorting or injecting them. Using the medicine for another purpose, such as getting high. Abusing some prescription drugs can lead to addiction. These include narcotic painkillers, sedatives, tranquilizers, and stimulants. You can’t get prescription medicines unless someone with authority prescribes them. Usually, this means a written prescription from your doctor. Dentists, optometrists, midwives and nurse practitioners may also be authorized to prescribe medicines for you. The prescription is a form with information about the required medicine, including its name, form, strength, dose, quantity to be dispensed, how long you need to take it for and any other instructions for use. Instructions on how to take the medicine are typed on a label and stuck to the medicine container by your pharmacist. There's a reason why prescription drugs are intended to be taken under a doctor's direction: If used improperly, they can be dangerous. Despite what many teens and adults think, abusing prescription drugs is not safer than abusing illicit drugs. As the facts will tell you, prescription drugs can have dangerous short- and long-term health consequences when used incorrectly or by someone other than for whom they were intended.

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.

Market Analysis:

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.
