To verify the prescription indicators described by the WHO in focus in Pharmaceutical Care for high-risk pregnant women attended at the Policlínica Francisco Carlos Cavalcante Roque in the municipality of Quixadá-CE.

It was an observational, cross-sectional study consisting of a predominantly quantitative approach. Prescriptions of 80 pregnant women were analyzed in March to May 2016.

It was observed 99 drugs in prescriptions with more than one medicine, having as the most prescribed, Methyldopa (20%), Ferrous Sulfate (11%) and Cephalexin (8%).
