Occurrences of MDI among 85 out of the 178 MMTP patients. The bars show the percentages of patients taking different classes of drugs and their corresponding pharmacological levels. *In Taiwan's National Health Insurance (NHI) program, the pharmacologic classification is based on the Anatomical Therapeutic Chemical (ATC) system in general. According to the ATC system, benzodiazepines are not included in tranquilizers. Rather, they are included in anxiolytics. However, in the NHI program, benzodiazepines are counted separately from other anxiolytics. Therefore, benzodiazepines, anxiolytics and tranquilizers are grouped separately.
