ABSTRACT

Objective: The main objective is to study on drug usage and evaluation of analgesics in a private hospital. Methodology: The prescriptions were collected from various departments to evaluate the usage of analgesics. 1006 prescriptions were collected in a period of 6 months. The data was represented in the form of percentages and proportions. Results: A total of 1006 prescriptions were collected. Among these 454 were males and 552 were females. The total number of 1851 analgesics were prescribed The percentage of opioids was 6.69%, and the percentage of non- opioids was 93.31%. The most Common age group that prescribed with more number of analgesics was 40-49(years).
