This questionnaire based study was conducted in resident doctors to test their knowledge, attitude and practice regarding fixed dose combinations (FDCs). The questionnaire included two questions to test the attitude, (1) in which condition you prescribe FDCs the most? and (2) do you think that FDCs are allowed to be marketed? Similarly, three questions related to practice were also included, (1) which is the most common FDC you prescribe? (2) What are its active ingredients and (3) from where do you get the information about FDCs? We observed that attitude about prescribing and desirability of FDCs was clearly evident and similarly the practice employed was also demonstrated adequately with the help of these questions. We, therefore, feel that the aim of study remains fulfilled.
