Overall, 194 drug interactions were found among critical care unit patients in the first 24 hour of prescription. Delayed, moderate, and possible interactions were addressed the most interactions. The results showed a significant correlation between the number of drug interactions and prescribed medications number, gender and duration of hospitalizations period(P<0.05).
