Abstract

This study provides documented quantification of differing patterns of drug use in the United States and United Kingdom during 2004-2006. The higher proportionate prescribing for most indications in the United States and the greater use of drugs under patent suggest that monetary costs are likely to be considerably higher in the United States than in the United Kingdom.
