Abstract

The objective of this study was to trace the profile of solid pharmaceutical forms prescription via feeding tubes in a hospital, and elaborate a table with data that may support the qualification of prescription and administration of drugs through feeding tubes. Through a retrospective analysis of patients’ prescription, 43 different solid dosage forms drugs administered through feeding tubes were listed. Moreover, it was found that an average of 3.3 ± 1.2 drugs was prescribed to be administered through this via per day per patient. Thirteen out of the 43 prescribed drugs had restrictions regarding their administration through feeding tubes. It was found that 86.7% of patients used at least one drug that could interact with enteral nutrition during the time that they remained hospitalized. This study allowed the diagnosis of a concerning cenario, where the quality of the patients’ pharmacotherapy may be impaired by the possible occurrence of drug-nutrient interaction.
