Acute prescriptions are generally one-off or infrequent prescriptions prescribed by the doctor or pharmacist on a case by case basis.  For example:

  • Antibiotics – these are usually prescribed at a specific dose for a set duration to treat a specific infection.  Due to the side effects of antibiotics and the increasing problem of antibiotic resistance a doctor needs to make a clinical decision to prescribe these drugs on an individual case by case basis.
  • Steroid creams – due to the significant side effects and risks with use of strong steroids and prolonged steroid use it is important that a doctor or pharmacist judges of the appropriate of prescriptions on a case by case basis
  • Drugs liable to dependence or abuse such as: Benzodiazepines (diazepam; temazepam), Z-drugs (zopiclone; zolpidem), and strong painkillers (tramadol; maxitram; co-codamol 30/500) – due to the risk of developing dependence with prolonged use these drugs they will often be prescribed for a short term period and not intended for prolonged use.
