Result: Significantly large proportion of patients opined that doctors do not have sufficient time to explain the prescription and they are not aware of generic drugs, cost affect their purchase of prescription. Conclusion: Clinically relevant, up to date, user specific, independent, objective and unbiased Medicines Information is the right of every patient and essential for appropriate drug use and can help in a big way to common public to address many problems faced by them.
