Cutting Edge Personalized Medicine for Asthma & Allergies

Safe and Effective Treatment for Medication Allergies

When you take medication, it’s supposed to help you to feel better. The last thing you need is an allergic reaction to something that is supposed to be beneficial to your health. When you have medication allergies, your immune system is working overtime, overreacting to a foreign substance in your body. Certain medications may tip the scale in your body, destroying its delicate balance. The end result is a reaction.

Everyone is unique in how they react when experiencing medication allergies. In some cases, the result may be hives or a rash. In other cases, you may experience digestive problems, such as nausea or diarrhea. In the worst-case scenario, you may experience swelling and difficulty breathing when you have an allergic reaction to medication. Regardless of what type of reaction you have experienced, it is important to get treatment for your allergy.

What are Common Medications that Cause Allergic Reactions?

While most people do not experience an allergic reaction to their medication, it does happen. An adverse reaction could occur after taking antibiotics, pain relievers, anticonvulsants, and monoclonal antibody treatments. You may have a reaction from a prescription or medicine that you buy in the store. The more you take of a particular medication, the higher your risk of developing an allergic reaction. If you receive an injection or you apply a medication to your skin, your risk of experiencing a medication allergy increases.

What Can You Do About a Medication Allergy?

The most important thing you can do when taking medication is pay attention to your body. Your medication is supposed to be helping you in some way, bringing about relief. If you don’t feel any relief for your symptoms, you may be experiencing an adverse reaction. If you notice any changes in your health or anything that seems abnormal, there is a good chance that a medication allergy has kicked in. If you have any concerns or are experiencing troublesome symptoms, it is important to see a qualified medical professional right away.
