Abstract
Drug related problems are an essential term in the world of pharmaceutical care. Other terms can be used for the same concept, such as medication errors, but this term is different from drug related problems. The fact that the elderly take more medications for the treatment of several diseases makes them more susceptible to the occurrence of adverse reactions. The errors refer to the mistakes in the process that could lead to problems. Drug related problems can originate when prescribing, dispensing or taking/administering medicines. The aim of this study was to analyze the drug related problems and usage of drugs among geriatric patients living at old age homes. The results of study shows that males (59.33%) are more affected with chronic diseases than females (41.67%). Drug related problems due to drug interactions (62) followed by drug overdose (54). Most of the interventions for inappropriate drug contraindications, Adverse Drug Reactions were rectified and improved (100%) followed by other problems. The study concluded that pharmacist can prevent clinical drug related problems by making a suitable intervention.
