Abstract
All the psychotropic tablets prescribed by a general practitioner in one year are itemised. The patients who received them are separated into diagnostic groups and their treatment is analysed by the number of attendances, prescriptions, and duration of therapy. Hospital referrals and overdoses over a longer period are recorded. My policy in psychiatric conditions is indicated.
