    Introduction: Drug-related problems may influence the therapeutic results in stroke patients during the treatment, and they can lead to failure in achieving the therapeutic objectives. Methods: The study was conducted to identify drug-related problems and their percentage, to find the relationship between drug-related problems with the drug types, comorbidity, and duration of hospital stay, and to recommend some solutions for the drug-related problems. The study used descriptive design to analyze samples that met the inclusion criteria. The data were collected from medical records and interviews with the physicians, pharmacists, and nurses. Results: Drug-related problems identified in this study were 54.0% due to drug interaction, 33.1% due to too high dosage, 7.3% due to unnecessary drugs, 1.6% due to too low dosage, 1.6% due to the need for additional therapy, 1.6% due to unmet drugs, and 0.8% due to wrong drug therapy. Analysis, which was done using Chi- square, found a relationship between the drug types and drug-related problems, no relationship between comorbidity in stroke patients and drug-related problems, and no relationship between the duration of hospital stay and the drug-related problems. Conclusions: The most common recommendation from the pharmacists to the health professionals was a modification in the interval/frequency/timing.
