The goal of the study is to analyse the drug prescribing patterns in Macedonia and their relevance to the morbidity patterns. There were collected 603 common and 656 reimbursable prescriptions on four country areas - Skopje, Ohrid, Prilep and Bitola. Collected prescriptions are systematized according to the ATC groups, INN of the prescribed drugs. The study shows that the prescribing and morbidity patterns are similar only in case of gastrointestinal problems. It is recommended to introduce policy of different levels of prescribing especially for antibiotics in order to rationalize drug usage in the country.
