We respectfully take issue with the recent article published in the journal by Hughes and Weiss which offers a valuable and thoughtful documentation of various barriers and potential facilitators to reporting of adverse drug reactions (ADRs). While pharmacists generally expressed positive attitudes towards the reporting, they identified some key obstacles to ADR reporting, including lack of observed ADRs, lack of time to report as well as difficulty in determining the causative drug.
