What are the symptoms of drug allergy?
Drug allergic reactions are similar to allergic reactions resulting from
and other substances that we ingest. An individual's genetic make-up helps
determine what they are allergic to and the severity of their allergies.
Allergic reactions can be mild or deadly. Mild reactions include
and hives. More
serious reactions involve swelling of lips, tongue, and
difficulty breathing that can lead to death.
Allergic reactions are different
from common side effects of many drugs such as a headache or stomach upset.
