Abstract

The observational and brief cross section study was conducted in the ADR monitoring centre, department of pharmacology, SVS MEDICAL HOSPITAL. The adverse drug reactions (ADR) reported by physician of dermatology department of SVSMH were collected and then causality, severity and preventability assessment was done. The results were presented as number and percentage. Total of 544 patients were observed with 15 suspected ADRs. The incidence of dermatological ADR was 3.78%. Maximum incidence of dermatological ADRs were observed with anti-inflammatory agents and immunosuppressive (33.30%) followed by antibiotic drugs (13.3%).Dermatological adverse drug reactions were a common occurrence and awareness about them was found to be essential for early detection and prevention. The healthcare system can promote the spontaneous reporting of dermatological ADR top Pharmacovigilance centre's for ensuring safe drug use and patient care. . Most of the reported ADRs were possible, definitely preventable and mild in nature. Our study suggests that there is a need of intensive monitoring for ADRs in tertiary care hospital for early detection and to ensure the patient safety.
