The present study is prospective and observational non-interventional study was conducted in tertiary care center. All suspected ADRs which are observed in hospital stay will be assessed for causality, severity, preventability and predictability. The results were presented as number and percentage. Among the 7697 cases ( both males and females), a total of 240 ADRs were detected, an overall incidence of 03.11 % adverse drug reactions in inpatients. The high prevalence of ADR mostly observed in the age group between 1-10 years 48 (20.00%)  From this 240 ADR’s where 7.96% on continuing t, 38.36% are recovering, 47.08% are recovered.
