Drug side effects are generally regarded as an unhealthy secondary effect, which leads to the desired remedial effect of medicine or medication. The side effects of drugs vary for everyone depending on the person’s disease status, age, weight, gender, ethnicity, and general health.
Side effects can be triggered when degradation/increasing dose or drug or drug system expires. Side effects can also not follow with the proposed treatment. When the side effects of the drug or medicines are severe, the dosage can be adjusted or another medicine may be prescribed.
Lifestyle or dietary changes can also help reduce drug side effects. Allergic reactions can occur with any medication. It may also result in fatal anaphylactic reactions from itching and rash.
Some medicines cannot help side effects due to its chemical structure. The common allergy drug diphenhydramine (also known by the brand name ‘Benadryl’ is one. Although it presents simple symptoms of allergy, it will also block chemical acetylcholine, and it leads to drowsiness and other common side effects, including dry mouths.
Some drugs have rarely had significant side effects on the right amount. Typically, the use of warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven) generally works well to stop blood clots and is not boring, but severe internal bleeding can occur in the wrong conditions. Side effects can be shown only when some drugs are mixed with some other things. This can be called a drug interaction. For example, drinking alcohol can cause accidental overdose when you take alcoholic drinkers.
This leads to many deaths. Another example of interest is grapefruits, which can affect the blood levels of some drugs, including blood pressure and cholesterol medications.
