Allergic Reactions to Drugs

What causes an allergic drug reaction?

Allergic reactions occur when a person's immune system reacts abnormally to a medication. Any number of drugs can be responsible for an allergic drug reaction, including over-the-counter drugs and prescription medications. While there are distinct differences between drug allergies and non-allergic reactions, they are both considered adverse drug events. If you have experienced any type of adverse drug event, you should seek medical attention immediately. Drug allergy symptoms can include:

  • Skin rashes
  • Hives
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Swelling of body parts
  • Anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction
  • Stevens Johnson Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN)

According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, adverse drug reactions may affect up to 10% of the world's population and 20% of all hospitalized patients. In the United States, adverse drug reactions, including drug allergies, are among the top five causes of death. In addition to over-the-counter drugs and prescription medications, antibiotics and vaccines can also cause allergic reactions, with varying degrees of severity. If you or a loved one has experienced an allergic reaction to drugs, you can schedule a free case evaluation with our legal team to determine if you have legal recourse available.
