Any medication can trigger an allergic reaction. That said, some are more likely to cause these types of problems than others. These are the most common requiring the medical alert notification.
- Antibiotics — amoxicillin, ampicillin, penicillin, tetracycline, and others
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen and naproxen
- Sulfa drugs
Adverse reactions to medications are common, yet everyone responds differently. One person may develop a rash or other reactions when taking a certain medication, while another person on the same drug may have no adverse reaction at all.
Only about 5% to 10% of these reactions are due to an allergy to the medication.
An allergic reaction occurs when the immune system overreacts to a harmless substance, in this case a medication, which triggers an allergic reaction. Sensitivities to drugs may produce similar symptoms, but do not involve the immune system.
Drug Allergy Treatment & Management
If you have side effects that concern you, or you suspect a drug allergy has occurred, call your physician. If your symptoms are severe, seek medical help immediately. A serious anaphylactic reaction requires immediate medical attention because the result can be fatal.
In most cases of adverse reactions, your physician can prescribe an alternative medication.
Make sure your physician, dentist and pharmacy are kept current regarding your drug allergies. This will help determine which medications should be avoided.
