Pharmacovigilance is the study that amplifies safety of drugs with the fundamental objective of complete abstain on the ADRs and timely identification/detection of new adverse drug reactions. The fundamental principle of the pharmacovigilance is to figure out and valuate the benefit and risk profile of the pharmacological activity and to increase the rational usage of drugs. Adverse Drug Reactions (ADR) are a major cause of patient morbidity and mortality. Spontaneous reporting of ADRs is found to be crucial in maintaining patient safety.
