Drug misuse is a major challenge for health professionals in the 21st century, and community pharmacy holds a key place in the management of prescribed medication, the provision of health education and promotion messages to drug users. Two decades ago there would have been no need for a book to describe such the role of community pharmacy; however, since more people are injecting drugs now and HIV is on the rise, community pharmacists have found their services in higher demand. The quality practice of tomorrow hinges on trained and competent practitioners working in a variety of community pharmacy settings. Drug Misuse and Community Pharmacy explains the historical, research and practical aspects. Experts use a practical and evidence-based approach to educate students of pharmacy, pre-registration pharmacists, community pharmacists working with drug users and anyone involved in developing and managing primary healthcare for drug misusers.

This book tries to determine patients’ perspectives regarding OTC medication, analyses incidence of irresponsible medication, and shows reasons for predisposing factors as well. Three quarter of the participants in this study were knowledgeable about the potential for abuse of some OTC drugs and most named analgesics as the most liable for abuse. Almost one third of the participants came across cases of OTC abuse. Participants were positive towards the health care being provided by their local pharmacy. They felt that pharmacists play an important role in providing advice on OTC medicines use. The OTC drug abuse problem needs to be tackled urgently as shown by the number of participants witnessing such abuse. Patients with higher managerial, administrative and professional occupations were more likely to follow the directions on the packet. Patients with manual occupations were more likely to seek the advice of a pharmacist rather than a doctor if a given OTC product did not work within a recommended time period.
