Abstract: Families in Saudi Arabia and other Gulf countries spent a total of US $150 million on medications that were never consumed. However, there appear to be no immediate solutions to the problem of medication wastage's impact on health care costs. The use of generic alternatives should be promoted, and drug use assessments should be implemented on a national level.
