  1. Original Reports

    1. Register-based indicators for potentially inappropriate medication in high-cost patients with excessive polypharmacy

      Article first published online: 26 FEB 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/pds.3764

      ‘Take home messages’

      • The drug users of at least 10 different drugs with high-drug costs account for over one-fifth of the total pharmaceutical expenditures but only 3% of all the drug users.
      • Over half of the high-cost polypharmacy drug users use a potentially inappropriate medicine according to the chosen indicators, whereas the same is true for about 1 in 10 of all the drug users.
      • The patients with excessive polypharmacy and high-drug costs would provide a more interesting group for containing pharmaceutical costs via medication reviews.
