Scholarcy highlights

  • The huge consumption, serious environmental pollution and high potential risks suggest the necessity of EPV of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Eco-pharmacovigilance is a practical and powerful approach to minimize the potential risks posed by pharmaceutical residues in environment
  • We focused on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and discussed the necessity and potential opportunities of practising EPV of NSAIDs
  • We found that the consumption of NSAIDs is huge and ubiquitous across the globe
  • From the perspective of drug administration, we identified some things that can be done as management practice options for EPV implementation on NSAIDs:
  • Improving knowledge and perceptions of pharmacy/health care practitioners about EPV of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Emphasizing the control of NSAIDs pollution sources, including preventing unnecessary consumption and unrational use of NSAIDs; promoting the safe disposal of medicines among the general public; controlling the manufacturing-related releases
