  1. Use of benzodiazepines in the community.

    Article - En anglais


    Although benzodiazepines are the most commonly prescribed psychotropic medications in the United States, considerable controversy surrounds their proper role in medical practice.


    Data from the household section of the 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey were analysed to estimate the prevalence and general characteristics of adults who purchased benzodiazepines in 1987.


    An estimated 6.2% (10.9 million) of the adult population purchased benzodiazepines in 1987.

    In nearly half (47.0%) of the purchases, the use of benzodiazepines perceived by the patient did not correspond to a labeled or literature-supported unlabeled use.
