of poisoning admitted to the casualty in a tertiary care hospital.The commonest agents involved in the
poisoning were due to pesticides followed by therapeutic drugs, of these majority of cases, involved antiinflammatory, analgesic, anti-histamines followed by Sedatives/ hypnotics; accounted for almost half.
