Question and answer
explain the difference between a drug allergy and a side effect. Why might a patient confuse the two? How would you explain the difference to him or her? Use your book as well as reliable Internet sources to give specific examples of each. Include in your explanation how the responsibilities of a medical assistant differ in these two circumstances
Drug allergy is an unwanted adverse effect from taking the medication (try not to get confused after reading the definition, [ as the difference will be clear lower in the article). If you have side effects after taking a drug it doesn’t mean you are allergic to that drug (or its main ingredient). Drug allergy differs from just having side effects from taking a drug. Side effects (or adverse
effects) are unwanted negative consequences that you experience while taking the medication or after it. Every label of any medication has ‘side effects’ section. You take something to relieve one symptom, and you may get some other unwanted symptoms in other part of your body. The list of adverse effects in the label can be rather big and serious. It doesn’t mean that you will have all of them, in fact, you may have none. But manufacturers should list all of the possible side effect of your body to the ingredients and chemicals in medication you take. ]
