Cumulative risks and types of adverse drug reactions


This calculator was developed for the Australian veteran population and may not be universally applicable. This page was last updated on 13/10/2022.

The chart lists the potential cumulative risk of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) associated with medicines. Medicines within the same class are counted only once. This tool has been developed and adapted from the Scottish polypharmacy guidelines 2018 and can also be used to see how adjustments to your patients medicines might reduce their risk of cumulative adverse effects.

The list focuses on commonly used drugs and commonly preventable ADRs, and is not meant to replace more detailed medicines information sources.
