Objective: Correct and rational use of drugs is one of the main factors in successful treatment and the patient should be aware of this dispensed drugs. This study was carried out to evaluate the knowledge of patients referred to Kerman pharmacies about their dispensed drugs. Methods: Data collection was carried out by face-to-face, filling out questionnaires and was analyzed by Chi-square test. Findings: From all of 300 patients, 69.7% were male and 30.3% were female. Most of them didn’t finish their school studies, were illiterate or only were able to read and write and didn’t have complete awareness of the use of dispensed drugs. Their awareness of dispensed drugs were as follows: Drug dosage 32.3%, time of drug use 22%, interval of drug use 26.7%, route of administration 93.3% and duration of treatment 58.7%. These data show that except the route of administration, the patients were not informed about their dispensed drugs. Patients with higher education had more complete awareness of drug use in comparison to illiterate patients (P<0.01). Conclusion: Patients have low knowledge of their dispensed drugs in Kerman. Therefore, measures must be taken to improve the knowledge of rational use of dispensed drugs.
Keywords: Patients knowledge, Route of administration, Kerman
