Consumer demand in the purchase and prescription of sugar-free medicines


Consumer demand in the purchase and prescription of sugar-free medicines



International Journal of Paediatric Dentistry 10(2): 140-144



ISSN/ISBN: 0960-7439

PMID: 11317999

DOI: 10.1046/j.1365-263x.2000.00183.x

To determine the current level of consumer demand in the purchase and prescription of sugar-free paediatric medicines. Data were collected by administered questionnaire. The study was conducted in a Hospital Paediatric Dentistry Unit and a Community Dental Clinic, both within the Bro Taf area of south-east Wales. The parents of 240 children attending for routine dental care responded to one of two short questionnaires, depending on whether their child had received a liquid oral medicine in the preceding month. Although aware of the benefits of sugar-free medicines, parents did not appear to be attempting to exercise the power of consumer demand to its full potential. They were more likely to ask a pharmacist (or pharmacist's assistant) than their general medical practitioner for a sugar-free medicine. We must continue to promote sugar-free medicines. While increasing the importance that health professionals attach to such products, future campaigns should also aim to increase consumer demand.
