Abstract:
Objectives
Drug and Poison Information Centers (DPICs) have a critical role in fulfillment of rational drug use programs and provide services to the scientific community with the aim of improving the health and safety of drug use.
Methods
This was a retrospective study on recorded calls of DPICs in Iran from March 2012 to March 2013. Data were consisted of general information; drug and poisoning information, medical history and also distribution of number of calls collected by DPICs in Iran.
Results
The centers received a total of 171769 calls. Most calls were made by the patients (56.1%) and then the patients’ relatives (38%). Also 67% of the patients were determined as female. The calls mostly were focused on Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR) (15.3%), indications (14.0%) and drug evaluations (11.8%). Anti-infective agents, Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and vitamins with 9.6%, 7% and 6.8% frequencies were the highest frequently asked questions, respectively.
Conclusions
Based on the results, patients do not receive enough information about their medications, from physicians and pharmacists. The DPICs have an important role to guide the people and provide the accurate drug and poison information and fill the absence of information that is not provided by medical staff. So, based on important role of these centers, it is worthy the Iran DPICs being introduced more to people and we need more advertising around the country.
