Adverse Drug Reaction Profiling of Antidiabetics, Antianginals and Antibiotics based on Hospital Survey


The objective of this survey is to monitor the different Adverse Drug Reactions experienced by the patients treated with antidiabetics, antianginals and antibiotics from different hospitals. Adverse Drug Reaction profile or ADR was done mainly for monitoring the expected, unexpected side effects of a medication or combinations of medications. ADR profiling was done by healthcare professionals of different hospitals and clinical centers. ADR Profiling aimed to identify and quantify the risks associated with the use of drugs dispensed in a hospital setting. In this survey the ADR profiling was done with the help of hospital pharmacists from different Government and Private Hospitals across Kolkata, West Bengal. This survey only focused on the ADR Profile of antidiabetics, antianginals and Antibiotics. Some observed side effects of the report included antidiabetics having weight gain, nausea, vomiting. Antianginals showed symptoms of dizziness, fatigue, and headache. Whileside effects of antibiotic drugs included skin rash, itching and other allergic reactions. A comprehensive compilation of the work has been reported for guidance of healthcare professionals with an aim to encourage rational drug therapy and rational use of these categories of drugs and take appropriate remedial measures to improve quality of life of patients.
