Allergic reactions have several different symptoms and can be very serious for some. They are often caused by prescribed medication or over-the-counter drugs. If a doctor prescribed the medication that caused a serious risk to your health, you may be able to file a drug allergy claim in a medical malpractice lawsuit.
There are a range of symptoms and health risks that accompany an allergic reaction. One of the most serious forms of allergic reactions is anaphylaxis, a full body reaction that happens immediately after the exposure to the allergy. The only way to treat anaphylaxis is with epinephrine, which then lowers the blood pressure.
The signs of anaphylaxis are a severe drop in blood pressure, a tightening of the airway, weak pulse, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and lightheadedness. If you experience these signs, your health could be at serious risk.
