Prescription Only Medicine (POM) refers to a category of pharmaceuticals that are legally authorized for use solely under the guidance and supervision of a qualified healthcare professional. These drugs are not available over the counter and can only be obtained with a prescription from a licensed medical practitioner.
The prescription requirement serves to ensure that POMs are administered safely, as they often have specific dosing, contraindications, and potential side effects that need expert evaluation and monitoring. This designation helps safeguard the health and well-being of patients by providing a level of control and oversight over the distribution and usage of these medications.
