Description In India, there are several consumer groups who encourage patients to report any adverse reactions encountered by them, although there is no information for patients on how to report ADRs directly to the regulatory authority. Direct reports from the patients, the ones who actually experience ADRs, are not accepted by the monitoring centres and by regulatory authorities. To add to this is the total lack of any awareness about ADRs in the general population. So every pharmacist and pharmacovigilance system has a key role in minimising the ADRs and bring awareness about safe usage of drugs in global health care.
