Question and answer
Q: why is it important to record and report any side effects and adverse reactions when taking medication
A: In diagnosing a cutaneous eruption that may be an adverse drug reaction it is important to decide whether the eruption is due to the disease, primarily due to the drug, or due possibly to an interaction between the disease and the drug. [ [ Cutaneous reactions frequently occur when patients are receiving a number of drugs, and thus etiological relationship may be difficult to assess. When
patients take drugs for a febrile disorder that ultimately proves to be an infection, an eruption may be due to the underlying disorder or the prescribed drug. Some cutaneous drug reactions may be dose-dependent or due to exacerbation of underlying disease. The terms considered here refer to adverse drug reactions that affect the skin prominently and are at times severe. Systemic disorders such as serum sicknessmayhave skin manifestations but do not involve the skin primarily and are therefore discussed under different organ-systems. Other terms not considered are those that refer to such disorders as psoriasis, scleroderma, and systemic lupus erythematosus, disorders occasionally reported as drug-related but already clearly defined in the medical literature. However, when patients present with atypical signs and symptoms of such conditions as scleroderma and systemic lupus erythematosus, drugs as etiological factors should be considered; an example is the eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome, associated with l-tryptophan. Also not considered are terms for disorders of the hair and sweat glands and acneiform eruptions; these disorders are usually easy to describe and the terms used are not liable to misinterpretation. ]
