What are signs you're reacting badly to a drug?

Louisiana residents take medicine every day for a number of reasons, whether it's for short-term or long-term illnesses, for allergies, headaches, or other health-related issues. However, medications for both preventative and prescriptive reasons can have equally negative effects if they're not produced or sold correctly.

One form of defective medication involves ingredients being left unannounced. This can cause a huge issue for people who have allergies or sensitivities to certain types of drugs or foods. In some cases, it might be the filler ingredients that cause issue. For example, many medications have fillers that contain wheat or dairy proteins. If these ingredients are not properly announced, you may have an allergic reaction.

There are different signs associated with allergic reactions to drugs. Mayo Clinic lists off a few, including drug allergy symptoms that range from the most common to the most severe. In many cases, you will likely experience at least some of the following:

  • Itching, rashes or hives
  • Watery or itchy eyes
  • Swelling
  • Wheezing or shortness of breath
  • Fever
  • Running nose

In more severe cases of allergic reaction, you could have extreme nausea, vomiting, difficulties breathing, seizures, a drop in blood pressure, or fainting. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important that you seek medical attention immediately. These are potential signs of anaphylaxis, which is a type of allergic reaction that can be deadly.

If you have any of these reactions to a drug, especially because of ingredients that were not announced properly, you may want to reach out to an attorney. They will be able to help you determine how you can seek financial compensation for your struggles.
