Conseil pharmaceutique en automédication : enquête en Basse-Normandie à propos de trois médicaments

Abstract : In the first part, this thesis defines self-medication, explaining its legislation, its market evolution, and the main pathologies concerned. In a second part, we’ve created three questionnaires in order to carry out a study on pharmaceutical advice associated with self-medication by targeting two pharmaceutical ingredients ibuprofen, cétirizine (find in many specialities) and Actifed jour et nuit® a specialty. The main purpose of this inquiry was to check if the patients had correctly assimilated the main drug information following the tips given during the delivery. The third part reports the results of this survey. Finally, In the last part the results obtained are going to be the subject of discussions and comparison with the results of other studies dealing with the same subject. Generally speaking, it is clear that health professionals have well recalled the essential notions of medicines and are well aware of the patients’s field. These drugs are commonly used by the french population but unfortunately for the majority of them, some essential notions such as the composition of the drug is unknown. However the patients know better the dosage or the times of administration.
