Abstract

Antiasthmatic drugs are often prescribed for conditions different from asthma and many patients are exposed to therapy for which there is no evidence of efficacy. The aim of this study was to test whether antiasthmatic drug prescription rates reflect the prevalence of asthma in an Italian paediatric population, therefore to evaluate appropriateness of treatments. Drug prescriptions involving 24,407 children
