The study was conducted to determine the extent of practice of self-medication among engineering students. A self administered questionnaire eliciting self-medication practices were distributed to one hundred engineering students, Bellary, Karnataka. Results are expressed in counts and percentages. Out of total 0ne hundred students, 65% were males and 35% were females. Highest proportions of subjects belong to age 22 years (60%) and the proportion of subjects involved in self medication was found to be 38%. Practice of self-medication was highly prevalent among the students. Attitude of the students towards self-medication was positive. It should be emphasized that we must create awareness about appropriate use of self-medication and the adverse drug reaction arising from self-medication
