Sažetak

 

Analgetici predstavljaju farmakoterapijsku grupu ljekova koji se nerijetko koriste u samomedikaciji.Cilj istraživanja bio je analizirati upotrebu najčešće korišćenih analgetika, utvrditi vrstu indikacije za koju se primjenjivani analgetici najčešće koriste, identifikovati i kategorisati potencijalne interakcije koje mogu nastati pri istovremenoj primjeni većeg broja ljekova.Deskriptivnim epidemiološkim istraživanjem, obuhvaćeno je ukupno 200 ispitanika, oba pola, starosti iznad 18 godina.Kao instrument u istraživanju korišćen je strukturirani anketni upitnik (20 pitanja). Istraživanje je sprovedeno među stanovnicima opština Podgorica i Berane (maj - jul, 2019. god.).Od ukupnog broja anketiranih, preko 90% ispitanika pribjegava nekom vidu samomedikacije. Kao najčešće korišćene analgetike u samomedikaciji, stanovnici opštine Podgorica, navode ibuprofen (37,6%), diklofen (20%) i metamizol (10,6%). Stanovnici opštine Berane, kao najčešće analgetike navode ibuprofen (34,5%), diklofen (16,8%) i metamizol (10%). Kao najčešće indikacije za upotrebu analgetika, ispitanici iz Podgorice navode glavobolju, bolove u leđima i menstrualne tegobe, dok stanovnici opštine Berane, analgetike najčešće koriste za glavobolju, bolove u leđima i bolove u mišićima. Kao izvor pružanja potrebnih informacija o upotrebi analgetika, na teritoriji obje analizirane opštine, ispitanici najčešće navode farmaceuta, sa preko 50%. Analizom upotrebe ljekova moguće je sagledati trenutne potrebe stanovništva, čime bi zasigurno mogli uticati na racionalizaciju upotrebe i izmjene u propisivačkoj praksi.

Abstract

 

Analgesics are a pharmacotherapeutic group of drugs that are infrequently used in self-medication. The research aimed to analyze the use of the most commonly used analgesics, determine the type of indications for which it is applied most commonly used analgesics, identify and categorize potential interactions that may occur when co-administered a larger number of drugs.Descriptive epidemiological study, covered a total of 200 subjects, both sexes, aged over 18 years. As an instrument in the study used a structured questionnaire (20 questions). The survey was conducted among residents of the municipality of Podgorica and Berane (May - July, 2019).Of the total number of respondents, over 90% of the respondents resort to some form of self-medication. As the most commonly used analgesics in self-medication, residents of Podgorica municipality cite ibuprofen (37.6%), diclofenac (20%) and metamizole (10.6%). Berane residents also cite ibuprofen (34.5%), diclofenac (16.8%) and metamizole (10%) most frequently. The most common indications for the use of analgesics are those from Podgorica who cite headache, back pain and menstrual problems, while the residents of Berane municipality use analgesics most often for headache, back pain and muscle pain. As a source of providing the necessary information on the use of analgesics, the respondents most often cite pharmacists, with over 50%, in the territory of both analyzed municipalities.The analysis of the use of drugs is possible to consider the current needs of the population, which could certainly affect the rationalization of the use of drugs and changes in prescribing practice.
