Therefore, legal reglamentation does not secure the efficiency of Legal Acts. The first chapter analyses the pharmaceutical preparations’ rational consumption concept in the Lithuanian Legal Acts. It is important to stress that at present none of Lithuanian Legal Acts present “rational usage of pharmaceutical preparations’” concept, although there are references towards “rational usage of pharmaceutical preparations” in Legal Acts.

Legal Acts reglamenting the activities of pharmacie are complex in their nature, as they regulate social, legal, economic relations.

Analysis of the Lithuanian Legal Acts’ proves that regulation of pharmaceutical practice must be improved in the Lithuanian legal system in the aspect of rational usage of pharmaceutical preparations. This article presents four concrete recommendations to improve The Republic of Lithuania’s Legal Acts.
