    A retrospective review of 493 patients treated during a single month in a general hospital in mid-Michigan revealed that a majority (84.2%) of them received prescriptions for sedative-hypnotic drugs.

    There were p.r.n. in 66% of cases and routine prescriptions in the remainder.

    Prescriptions were equally distributed across the specialities: internal medicine 15%, surgery 23%, family practice 19%, psychiatry 22%, and OB/GYN 20%. Flurazepam was the most frequently prescribed drug (48.4%), followed by triazolam (26.4%) and temazepam (12.2%).
