A Prospective Study on Drug - Drug Interactions at a Corporate Hospital in Tamilnadu

Author: PALANISAMY SIVANANDY
Abstract: A prospective observational study was carried out to assess the nature of drug-drug interactions at a corporate hospital. A total of 30 patients were included in this study, which shown that most of the drug –drug interactions were moderate and were found in married, male patients. The most commonly prescribed drug was found to be paracetamol in 66.66 (n=20) percent and most common disease was peptic ulcer in 16.67 (n=5) percent in the study population. Polypharmacy was practiced in this corporate hospital in many of the treatment chart and this may be the reason for more number of drug interactions in this study population. Polypharmacy should be avoided or reduced to the number of drug-drug interactions and to improve the quality of life of patients. The vital role of physician and pharmacist are needed to overcome drug-drug interactions and other drug related problems.
