Quelle est l'attitude du pharmacien d'officine face à une demande d'Ibuprofène sans ordonnance dans le cadre d'une douleur de gorge fébrile évoluant depuis plus de trois jours ? : enquête transversale observationnelle, exhaustive, sans modification de pratique

Abstract : Introduction: Ibuprofen is the most commonly used nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug in France. However, this medicine is likely to cause sometimes serious complications. The purpose of this study is to assess the pharmacist’s attitude towards a request for Ibuprofen without a prescription in the context of a febrile throat pain that has been going on for more than three days, our main hypothesis being that the treatment would be issued without further investigation by the pharmacist. Material and methods: we carried out a cross-sectional observational survey, exhaustive on the whole of the pharmacies of Caen, without modification of practice, in the form of a mystery costumer inquiry. The primary endpoint was refusal of treatment because of possible bacterial angina. Results: 8 % of the 39 pharmacies tested validated our primary endpoint. Of the 36 pharmacies that dispensed treatment, 33 % had Ibuprofen in open access, 47 % did not ask any questions or gave any advice, and 19 % gave only the dosage and maximum daily dose without other question or advice. None of the subgroup analyzes found a statistical link between the evaluation criteria and the various sales variables. Discussion: in the context of self-medication, the questioning and the information provided by the pharmacist are insufficient. To limit the occurrence of complications, it is necessary to raise the awareness of primary care professionals, but also patients, through training and multiplying the sources of information.
