As per the World Health Organization (WHO), anaemia is defined as a condition in which the number of red blood cells gets decreased which leads to decreased levels of haemoglobin (Hb). The study provides an overview of the prescription analysis of anemic condition with pharmacist intervention in tertiary care hospital. This study was conducted in the duration of 6 months (August 2017-January 2018) which includes patients of different conditions based on their range of haemoglobin categorized according to age, gender, and social habits. Our results imply that initially patients were found to be anemic at the time of admission but the anemic condition is not treated as they concentrated more on treating the pathological condition and according to prescription analysis we found that they became more anemic during the treatment process which may be due to their pathological condition such as Chronic kidney disease (CKD), Coronary artery disease (CAD), cancer, Chronic liver disease (CLD) or due to the usage of prescribed drugs like antibiotics, analgesics, NSAID’s. The observed disease conditions and the drugs may also show significance in the occurrence of anaemia and in most of the prescriptions appropriate treatment for anaemia was not provided during the hospital stay which includes our intervention regarding the study. As per the literature females were prone to be anemic, surprisingly in our hospital study we have found that males were found to be anemic in the age group of 25-64 years in mild anemic category (10-14 g/dl), whereas in the moderate (8-10 g/dl), severe (6.5-8 g/ dl) and life-threatening (>6.5 g/dl), female cases were more.
