Abstract

The current research set out to identify the medication prescription trend in the gynecological departments of several Uttar Pradesh hospitals in order to provide a rationale for drug usage. The study detailed the medications used to treat various gynecological issues between January 1, 2023, and December 15, 2023. We examined a total of 250 prescriptions from four well-known hospitals in Uttar Pradesh. We collected sixty prescriptions from first-time patients at each institution, sourced from both indoor and outdoor sources. The results showed that 250 prescriptions for various conditions contained a total of 1088 medications. The report ranked antimicrobial drugs (275) first, followed by anti-ulcer drugs (221), vitamins and minerals (219), analgesic drugs (125), drugs that affect gastrointestinal motility (90), drugs that act on the central nervous system (CNS) (90), antihypertensive drugs (90), hormonal drugs (100), and anti-diabetic drugs (100). Each prescription had more than four medicines, according to the report. The report classified 77, 136, and 68 of the 292 medications in 50 pregnant women's prescriptions as pregnancy categories A, B, and C, respectively, while the remaining 11 medications lacked a specific category assignment. It was clear from the prescription pattern that medication-related issues, such as drug interactions and adverse reactions, were possible. To achieve desirable treatment results, modern drug efforts must be implemented.
