Abstract: The pattern of drug supply from pharmacies, whether by prescription, recommendation from the pharmacist or a request for a particular product by the client, was assessed. The drugs dispensed from 25 pharmacies, each from a different area of Alexandria, were investigated. Two three-hour study visits were made to each pharmacy to collect data on all drugs dispensed. A total of 1174 products were supplied; 28% on prescription and 72% over-the-counter sales [17% of the latter were recommendations from pharmacists]. The range of products supplied with and without a prescription were similar. The implications of these findings are discussed
