ABSTRACT:
This Study was carried out with the objectives of assessing the rationale of prescribing corticosteroids, the most common type of corticosteroids prescribed, and common adverse reactions of corticosteroids and to perform drug utilization evaluation for corticosteroids. Materials and Methods: This prospective observational study was carried out for a period of 6 months by including every case prescribed with corticosteroid in the general medicine wards. The data was captured in a structured form and analysed using SPSS. Result: Amongst the 269 patients included into the study, 51 % were male and 93 (35%) of them were in the age group of 41 to 60 years. Dexamethasone was prescribed more (86%) than other corticosteroids. Common adverse effects observed were abdominal pain and rash. Conclusion: Use of Corticosteroids was found to be appropriate as per standard treatment guidelines.
