Pharmacotherapeutical complications are health hazardous and matter great importance. Thus its essential to evaluate the possible drug related risks while prescribing the life saving drugs in clinical practice (patients of different age, indication, history and profile).

Counselling of the patient regarding the use of medication is another need to attain maximum drug compliance.
