Table 2 Example for the calculation of the medication score (combination of topical and systemic drugs)

From: Prospective validation of the “rhino conjunctivitis allergy-control-SCORE©” (RC-ACS©)

Medication No. of admin. SP* per admin. Nose SP* Eyes SP* Total SP*
Levocabastine ED* 2 1 0 2 2
Levocabastine NS* 2 1 0** 0 0
Mometasone NS* 2 3 6 0 6
Loratadine 2 6 6*** 5 11
Sum    12 7 19
  1. * SP = Score points; ED = Eye Drops; NS = Nasal Spray.
  2. ** It would be 2 SP for use of Levocabastine NS alone, but in combination with the scores for Mometasone and Loratadine the maximum of 12 SP for nose is reached.
  3. *** It would be 7 SP for use of Loratadine alone, but in combination with the Mometasone score the maximum of 12 SP for nose is reached.
