A prospective, observational study was conducted for a period of 6 months from January to June 2017 in a tertiary care hospital. Data was collected from post menopausal women at age of 45 to 60 years using menopausal health questionnaire and menopausal rating scale (MRS).

To assess the impact of pharmacist education, exercise practice, stress handling capacity, menopausal knowledge and view of menopause was targeted. On intervention by a clinical pharmacist, participated women learned to do exercise daily from 44 (17.3%) to 103 (40.6%).
