An adverse drug reaction (ADR) is defined by World Health Organization (WHO) as âAny response to a drug which is noxious, unintended and occurs at doses used in man for prophylaxis, diagnosis or therapyâ. It has been seen that healthcare cost increases to a great extent due to Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs). Sometimes the ADRs are so serious and severe that, cost needed to treat morbidity and mortality due to it, is more than the cost needed to treat the actual condition of interest.
