ABSTRACT
The prescription is a legal document, regulated by federal laws and Pharmacy Federal Council resolution, constituting the main means of communication between prescribers and dispensers and the beginning for the rational use of medicines (RUM). The objective of this study was to evaluate the prescription dispensed in a community pharmacy, as the presence of the information necessary for the issuing of a complete prescription according to current legislation. The study was realized between May and June 2009 in the city of São Luiz Gonzaga/RS. It was analysed 98 prescriptions, totalling 137 medicines. There was the absence of user's address in 100% of the prescriptions and the presence of commercial designation in 71.4%. On information relating to the medicines absences were: route of administration (84.7%), duration of treatment (76.5%) and pharmaceutical form (40.8%). The results of this study show inappropriate practices pertaining to prescription, and confirm necessity for strict supervision. As well as indicate the need of deploying monitoring strategies to users of drugs, involving health professionals that interact to guide and educate the population about the RUM, especially the pharmaceutical care.
