Supplementary notes

Dispensed prescriptions in retail pharmacies, excluding mail order and long-term care pharmacies. Prescriptions are normalized to reflect consistent prescription sizes. Prescriptions can be of different durations and this has been shown to vary significantly and to change over time. Increasing numbers of 3-month prescriptions over time result in fewer prescriptions. This analysis adjusts all prescriptions to the national average number of extended units per prescription.
