Vision problems: Long-term use of corticosteroids such as triamcinolone nasal spray may cause glaucoma or cataracts. Report any vision changes to your doctor immediately.

Wound healing: Corticosteroids such as triamcinolone can reduce the ability of wounds to heal. If you have ulcers in your nose, have had nasal surgery, or have had nasal trauma, talk to your doctor about how this medication will affect these conditions. Your doctor may recommend stopping this medication, or waiting until wounds have completely healed to start using it.

Pregnancy: This medication should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking this medication, contact your doctor immediately.

  • desmopressin (nasal)
  • esketamine
  • other nasal sprays

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Allergy to drugs – causes, symptoms, treatment

Surely the doctor has asked more than once about what drugs you are allergic to. This question is not asked out of idle curiosity, but because a reaction can occur to any drug – and it is unpredictable¹. Learn how a drug allergy develops and what to do if a similar reaction occurs.

More than


of the world’s population0004
venous allergy, and most often
(in 65–75% of cases) it occurs
in women².

It is important to know that drug reactions can be either immediate or delayed (read more about types of allergic reactions here)¹. In the first case, symptoms are detected already within an hour or a maximum of six hours after taking the medication, provided that the person has already encountered any component of this drug¹. And in the second case, the reaction appears after a fairly long time after taking the medicine, later than 6–72 hours¹.

The symptoms themselves also vary. Urticaria, angioedema, rhinoconjunctivitis, bronchospasm (difficulty, wheezing), nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and anaphylaxis¹ are most common with immediate allergies. Symptoms of delayed allergy are various skin manifestations (rashes of varying severity) or a systemic reaction (nephritis, hepatitis, cytopenia, and others)¹.

Allergies are most commonly caused by antibiotics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)¹.

Among the first anti-ratings penicillin leads: up to 55% of cases of
venous allergy cases of vein allergy are due to its intake! 002 In addition to antibiotics and NSAIDs, anticonvulsants and anesthetics are also common causes of allergies¹.

Allergic symptoms may vary depending not only on the type of drug, but also on the patient’s gender, age, and many other factors¹. It also happens that the same drug causes different manifestations of allergies in the same person (for example, the first time allergy symptoms are limited to urticaria, after the next dose of the drug, Quincke’s edema begins)³. In addition, an allergic reaction may depend on the route of administration of the drug.

Ointments and creams cause allergic contact dermatitis and can lead to generalized rashes and angioedema³. This is the most allergenic route of drug administration³. The second place is shared between parenteral (intravenous, intramuscular and subcutaneous) and oral administration of medicines³.

Skin manifestations of drug allergy should be distinguished from other health disorders, manifested by skin symptoms: infectious diseases at an early stage (chicken pox, measles, etc.), psoriasis and some others. Sometimes allergies can be confused with herpetic skin lesions⁴. Allergic rhinitis has to be distinguished from rhinitis of other origin⁵. Anaphylactic reactions may be similar to other types of shock (eg, myocardial infarction, acute cardiovascular failure) and manifestations of a panic attack⁴.

  • Information about cases of allergic reactions to other substances and the presence of allergies in blood relatives¹,⁴ is essential.
  • It is important to clarify on which day of taking the drug the reaction began. Most drug allergies occur within the first two weeks of taking the drug⁶.
  • What other medications is the person taking besides the suspect. Sometimes a patient blames a new antibiotic when it was actually a different drug that caused the reaction⁶. Patients may forget about their dietary supplements, new cosmetics, etc.³

All the questions necessary for a correct diagnosis will be asked by a specialist.

Laboratory methods include determination of the level of blood immunoglobulins (antibodies to specific antigens (allergen)), basophil activation tests (these are cells involved in the development of allergies) and others⁴. If possible, do skin (scarification) tests¹ and provocative tests⁴.

Skin tests become revealing no sooner than four to six weeks after the allergy has been experienced⁴.

If you notice reactions from the body to all medications at once, then this may be a manifestation of chronic diseases that are not related to the immune system⁷. Although there are cases of multiple drug allergies, when the body reacts to three or more drugs at once, then taking any of them can cause allergy symptoms¹.

First of all, you need to stop using the medicine⁴ and follow a hypoallergenic diet⁸. In general, treatment is carried out in accordance with the standards of treatment of clinical manifestations, while using antihistamines, glucocorticosteroids⁸ and others⁴.

In life-threatening situations (anaphylaxis), if the reaction did not occur within the walls of a medical institution, an ambulance should be called urgently.

It is important to remember that drug allergies can occur both in people with previous allergic reactions and in those who have never suffered from this ailment⁷. If you experience any allergy symptoms, contact your doctor immediately. A note about which drugs caused the allergy should be included in all available medical documents. You and your loved ones should remember the names of these remedies to prevent the recurrence of allergic reactions, and in an emergency it can even save your life.

How do you know if you are allergic to a drug?

Learn how to tell if your reaction to a drug is an allergy. Learn about the signs, diagnosis, and treatment of allergic drug reactions.

Allergy to drugs is quite common and can occur in any person, regardless of age and gender. It is a reaction of the immune system to the drug introduced into the body and can manifest itself in various symptoms. It is very important to be able to recognize an allergic reaction to drugs in order to take the necessary measures in a timely manner and avoid possible complications.

One of the most common symptoms of drug allergy is a skin reaction. In case of an allergic reaction to the drug, redness, rash, itching or swelling may appear on the skin. These symptoms may be local, ie. limited to the area of ​​contact with the drug, or spread throughout the body. Skin manifestations of an allergy to the drug can be very diverse and individual, so it is important to pay attention to any changes in the skin after taking the drug.

Another sign of an allergic reaction to the drug may be a violation of the function of the respiratory system. If you are allergic to drugs, you may experience breathing problems, shortness of breath, shortness of breath, or coughing fits. These symptoms can occur both immediately after taking the drug, and some time after it. If you have these breathing problems, you should see a doctor for further examination and finding out the cause.

Causes of drug allergy

An allergic reaction to drugs can occur for a number of reasons. One of the main reasons is the individual sensitivity of the body to certain components of the drug. Some people may be sensitive to certain substances such as flavorings, colors, preservatives, chlorides and other additives that are contained in preparations.

It is also possible to cause an allergic reaction to drugs if a person is allergic to other substances, such as pollen or food. In such cases, when taking a drug containing similar substances, the body may react with an allergic reaction.

In addition, drug allergies can be caused by certain groups of drugs. Some medicines, such as antibiotics, antivirals, antihistamines, analgesics, and others, can cause an allergic reaction in some people.

It is important to note that an allergic reaction to drugs can occur not only when the drug is taken for the first time, but also after prolonged use. Therefore, before taking any drug, especially if you are allergic to other substances or drugs, it is recommended to consult a doctor and take allergy tests to rule out the possibility of an allergic reaction.

Symptoms of an allergic reaction to a drug

An allergic reaction to a drug can present with a variety of symptoms, which can be mild or severe, depending on how sensitive the body is to the drug.

One of the most common symptoms of an allergic reaction to a drug is a skin rash. It can show up as redness, itching, blistering, or eczema. Skin manifestations of allergy often occur at the injection site or around it.

Another common symptom of an allergic reaction to a drug is swelling. It can occur anywhere in the body, but swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat is most common. This condition can be dangerous as it can lead to breathing problems.

Very often an allergic reaction to a drug is accompanied by symptoms characteristic of an allergy in general. It can be a runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing, watery eyes, red eyes, and even an asthma attack.

If you develop these symptoms after taking the drug, it is important to contact your doctor immediately. He will conduct the necessary examination and prescribe the appropriate treatment. In some cases, it may be necessary to discontinue the drug and select an alternative treatment.

How to Diagnose a Drug Allergy

Allergy to drugs can be a dangerous condition, so it is important to diagnose and identify an allergic reaction to a specific drug in a timely manner. To do this, there are various methods that will help determine whether the drug causes allergies or not.

One of the main methods for diagnosing drug allergy is allergy testing. This method allows you to identify an allergic reaction to a specific drug by applying it to the skin or injecting it into the body. During allergy testing, the doctor observes the body’s reaction to the drug and draws conclusions about the presence or absence of allergies.

Another method of diagnosis is to conduct a trial administration of the drug. The doctor prescribes a small dose of the drug to the patient and observes his reaction to it. If there are signs of an allergic reaction, then this indicates the presence of an allergy to this drug.

Blood immunoassays can also be used to diagnose drug allergies. A blood test allows you to determine the presence of antibodies to the drug and identify an allergic reaction. This method is quite accurate and allows you to determine the specific drug that causes allergies.

It is important to remember that the diagnosis of drug allergy should be carried out by an experienced allergist. Only he will be able to correctly interpret the results and determine which drugs should be excluded from the patient’s treatment.

What to do if you have an allergy to a drug

If you have an allergic reaction to a drug, it is important to take a few steps to manage it and prevent it from getting worse:

  • Stop taking the drug that caused the allergy. If you are receiving treatment prescribed by a doctor, be sure to tell him about the allergic reaction that has occurred.
  • If you have antihistamines, take one dose to relieve allergy symptoms. However, before taking any medication, check with your doctor or pharmacist.
  • If you have symptoms of allergic shock, such as difficulty breathing, swelling of the throat or face, seek medical attention immediately. This may be a sign of a serious allergic reaction requiring emergency treatment.
  • If you have an allergic reaction to a drug, taking a hot shower or bath may help. Heat can relieve itching and soothe the skin.
  • If you have signs of allergic contact dermatitis, wash your skin with soap and water to remove drug residue. Then apply a glucocorticosteroid cream or lotion to the skin to relieve inflammation.

In any case, in case of an allergic reaction to a drug, it is important to consult a doctor so that he can evaluate your condition, prescribe the appropriate treatment and suggest alternative drugs, if necessary.

How to avoid an allergic reaction to drugs

An allergic reaction to drugs can be very unpleasant and dangerous. In order to avoid it, a number of precautions must be taken.

First, before taking any drug, you should consult your doctor. He will be able to evaluate all the possible risks and side effects associated with the use of this drug, and choose the safest alternative.

Secondly, before you start taking the drug, be sure to read the instructions. It lists all possible side effects and contraindications for use. If you know that you are allergic to any of the components of the drug, be sure to tell your doctor about it and choose another remedy.

Also, the drug should be started with a minimum dose and gradually increased to assess the reaction of the body. If unpleasant symptoms do not appear within a few days, you can continue taking it in accordance with the recommendations of your doctor.

If you have had an allergic reaction to drugs in the past, tell your doctor. He will be able to find alternative means or take precautions to avoid a recurrence of the reaction.

It is important to remember that an allergic reaction may not appear immediately, but several hours or even days after the start of the drug. Therefore, it is important to carefully monitor your condition and consult a doctor if any suspicious symptoms appear.

In the event of an allergic reaction to drugs, stop taking them immediately and seek medical attention. Your doctor will be able to prescribe appropriate treatment and suggest alternative treatments for your condition.

Importance of consulting a physician for drug allergies

Allergic reactions to drugs can have serious consequences for a person’s health. Therefore, it is important to consult a doctor at the first sign of an allergy. Only a specialist will be able to diagnose and determine whether the reaction is caused by the drug or there are other reasons.

The doctor will conduct a detailed examination of the patient, find out their medical and allergic history, and find out what drugs were taken before the onset of symptoms. This will reveal the relationship between taking a particular drug and an allergic reaction.

Your doctor may order additional tests, such as skin tests or blood tests, to confirm your allergy to a particular drug. This will help rule out other possible causes of the reaction and determine the safest treatment or drug substitution.

Consultation with a doctor is also important in order to receive advice on further treatment and prevent recurrent allergic reactions. The doctor may make recommendations for changing the dosage of the drug, replacing it with another similar effect, or choosing an alternative treatment.

Finally, the physician will be able to provide the patient with information on the precautions to be taken in case of drug allergies in order to avoid new reactions. This may include the exclusion of certain groups of drugs from treatment, but it is necessary to take into account all the individual characteristics of the patient and his disease.

Alternative treatments for drug allergies

Drug allergies can be a serious problem that requires immediate treatment. However, in addition to traditional medical treatments, there are also alternative methods that can help manage allergic reactions to drugs.

One such method is homeopathy. Homeopathic preparations contain minimal doses of active substances that can help the body cope with an allergic reaction. Homeopathic medicines are selected individually for each patient, taking into account his symptoms and characteristics of the body.

Phytotherapy is also one of the alternative treatments for drug allergies. Herbal preparations may have anti-inflammatory and antihistamine effects, which can help reduce allergy symptoms. Herbal teas, infusions and decoctions can be used to reduce inflammation and relieve itching and redness of the skin.

Acupuncture can also be an effective treatment for drug allergies. This method uses fine needles that are inserted into specific points on the body to stimulate the energy channels and restore balance in the body. Acupuncture can help reduce inflammation and allergy symptoms, improve immune system function, and improve a patient’s overall well-being.

However, before using any alternative drug allergy treatment, you should consult your doctor. The doctor will be able to assess the patient’s condition, determine the cause of the allergic reaction and advise the most appropriate method of treatment. Do not self-medicate and use alternative methods without consulting a doctor, as this can be dangerous to health.
