Abstract

Formulary is a continually revised compilation of pharmaceuticals (plus important ancillary information) that reflects the current clinical judgment of medical staff. Kasturba Hospital is a 1400 bedded tertiary care teaching hospital with different specialties, having more than 3000 brands and ancillary products in use. The hospital does not have a formulary of any kind. Present study involved development of a formulary for the hospital and comparing it with WHO Model Formulary. Monographs of the drugs were prepared as per the recommendation of Pharmacy and Therapeutic Committee of the hospital. Prepared hospital formulary consisted of 476 generic drugs of various categories and 95 fixed dose combinations. Availability of brands varied from single to many. About 75 medicines recommended by the essential medicine list were not present in the prepared hospital formulary. The drugs to be avoided or used with caution in renal failure, hepatic failure and in pregnancy were categorized and included in the formulary as additional information. The prepared hospital formulary was recommended for implementation in the hospital, which could thereby help as a tool to promote rational drug use.
