Abstract: Background: Alcoholic liver disease (ALD), a severe, potentially lethal effect of alcoholism. Alcoholic steatosis/ Fatty liver, Alcoholic hepatitis, Alcoholic cirrhosis are the stages. Prescription pattern monitoring studies (PPMS) is used as a method for analysis of prescription, dispensing and distribution practices of medication. Ensuring rational use of medicines (RUM) is the important aim of PPMS. Methods: A cross sectional observational study was carried out in 90 alcoholic liver disease patients in a secondary care teaching hospital. The analysis was done on the basis of sociodemographic criteria, stages of the disease along with comorbities and comparison of prescribing patterns. Child pugh score was used for the categorization of stages of ALD. Results: The study implied that male patients were more than female patients and the mean age group of 36-45. Most of the patients were diagnosed with alcoholic cirrhosis with all the patients were evidently found alcoholics. Diabetes Mellitus is the most seen co-morbidity among the participants followed by hypertension and hyperlipidemia. By the prescription analysis it is evident that vitamin tablets were prescribed the most for alcoholic liver disease patients. By carrying out PPMS, it was found that vitamin tablets were prescribed more often for ALD patients. Around 65% of the drugs were injectable and around 60% were prescribed in their generic name itself. Average number of drugs per prescription was 5 and average number of ALD related drugs prescribed was found to be 3. Conclusion: Our Study analyzed for prescribing pattern of drugs used in ALD patients and found that vitamin supplements are the most prescribed drugs followed by hepatoprotections and antibiotics and least used drugs are antihyperlipidemic followed by steroidal drugs. Thorough Prescription pattern monitoring studies can helps to increase the therapeutic efficiency and also to reduce the drug related problems in chronic disease patients like Alcoholic liver disease
Keywords: alcoholic liver disease, prescription pattern analysis, stages of alcoholic liver disease.
