Factors associated with high-quantity prescriptions of benzodiazepines in Sweden.
An important aspect, when discussing the prescribing and use of psychotropics, is the amount of drug prescribed at each visit.
In this study the Swedish Diagnosis and Therapy Survey was used in order to analyze high-quantity prescriptions of benzodiazepines.
The total amount of benzodiazepines prescribed-measured as defined daily doses (DDD)was calculated for each visit.
Prescriptions with quantities equal to or greater than the 90th percentile applied on the distribution of prescribed DDD per visit were defined as high-quantity prescriptions.
