Chaithra Vemparala*, Tabitha Sharon, Sreenu Thalla and Padmalatha Kantamneni

ABSTRACT

Adverse drug reaction (ADR) defined as harmful or unpleasant reaction resulting from intervention due to the use of medicinal product which may produce hazard from future administration. The incidence of ADRs was being increased from 3.7% to 30%. The studies report that ADRs account for 5% of hospital admissions and seen in 10-20% of hospitalized patients. Incidence of serious ADRs was 6.7% and fatal ADRs were 0.32% respectively. ADRs account for 4.2-30% of hospital admissions in United States and Canada, 2.5-10.6% in Europe and 5.7-18.8% in Australia. The pharmacist must assist in monitoring the safe and effective use of medication and reduce the occurrence of ADRs. As the pharmacists have vast knowledge of therapeutics and pharmacology of medications they can detect and monitor the ADRs and other medication related problems. Pharmacists should work together with other health care professionals to increase reporting of ADRs in hospital and community settings.
