  Background and Objective: Treatment guidelines for asthma emphasize the importance of patient education to asthma patients. However, in most of the developing countries, including India, provision of clinical pharmacy services by pharmacists to patients are still in the budding stage. The present study aimed to educate asthma patients and to assess the impact of pharmacists provided patient education on their knowledge, attitude, practice (KAP), health related quality of life and medication adherence. Materials and Methods: Patients were educated using the global initiative for asthma (GINA) recommended pocket guide. Impact of patient education was measured by comparing baseline and end visit KAP score, Saint George Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) score and patient medication adherence. Results: A total of 68 patients were educated. A significant (p<0.05) improvement of KAP score was observed with respect to baseline characteristics. A significant improvement (p<0.0001) in all the domains of the SGRQ score was observed from day 60 onwards. No statistically significant (p<0.05) changes were noted in the association between KAP score and baseline characteristics. Medication adherence to treatment was found to be 90-100%. Conclusion: Pharmacist provided patient education significantly improved patient’s KAP, HRQoL and medication adherence.

  Background and Objective: Management of anxiety with synthetic drugs result in diverse systemic side effects. Traditional plant and herbal remedies available come into the limelight for their effective and safe use in anxiety. The present study investigated the acute and sub-acute toxicity studies of a polyherbal combination (PHC), namely PHC3 for the management of anxiety. Materials and Methods: The prepared PHC contains the roots of Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha), Hemidesmus indicus, fruit of Aegle marmelos (Bael), pericarp of Emblica officinalis (Amla) and fresh juice of aerial parts of Ocimum sanctum (Tulsi) in selected ratio. Acute, sub-acute toxicity studies and histopathological study were carried out as per the standard guidelines. Results: No mortality was observed in acute toxicity study. In sub-acute toxicity study, no statistically significant (p>0.05) difference was observed with respect to feed intake, water intake, body weight changes, biochemical enzymes, biochemical metabolites, electrolytes, hematology and histopathology studies between control and treated rats. Conclusion: The developed polyherbal combination was found to be safe in both acute and sub-acute toxicity studies and thus, the tested combination is suitable for further pharmacological and pharmacokinetic studies.
