Drug Allergy Return to Conditions Treated

  • An adverse allergic reaction to a medication.
  • There are two major types of drug reactions: Immediate and Delayed.
  • Immediate reactions include hives, flushing, swelling, throat tightness, wheezing, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, feeling light-headed and other symptoms.
  • Immediate reactions can be life-threatening.
  • Delayed reactions are typically less serious and result in a rash that can occur days after taking a medication.
  • Delayed reactions are generally not life-threatening.
  • Allergists help identify drug allergies through skin testing, blood testing, and oral challenges so that patients may continue to use medication safely.
