Generic substitution27(275.94) Incorrect drug dosage90(919.8) Inappropriate duration of drug treatment86(878.92) Drug-allergy interactions102(1042.44) Clinicalabuse / misuse79(807.38) Therapeuticappropriateness141(1441.02) Over and underutilization56(572.32) Inappropriate generic use 56(572.32) Therapeutic duplication89 (909.58) Drug-drug interactions 184 91880.48) . And a total of 1022 medication therapy related problems were resolved and their overall percentage is 12706.3266.
