A Five-year retrospective survey was carried out on the prescribing pattern and drug use in the management at essential hypertension in a tertiary health institution in Lagos State. The study involved information gathering and analyses of data generated from 244 case tiles at out-patients with essential hypertension, and who visited the hospital regularly (fortnightly or monthly) for at least six months. The prescriptions were evaluated using WHO prescribing indicators and compared with derived standard values.
