    Information for Patients

    Drug Reactions

    Also called: Side effects

    Most of the time, medicines make our lives better. They reduce aches and pains, fight infections, and control problems such as high blood pressure or diabetes. But medicines can also cause unwanted reactions.

    One problem is interactions, which may occur between

    • Two drugs, such as aspirin and blood thinners
    • Drugs and food, such as statins and grapefruit
    • Drugs and supplements, such as gingko and blood thinners
    • Drugs and diseases, such as aspirin and peptic ulcers

    Interactions can change the actions of one or both drugs. The drugs might not work, or you could get side effects.

    Side effects are unwanted effects caused by the drugs. Most are mild, such as a stomach aches or drowsiness, and go away after you stop taking the drug. Others can be more serious.

    Drug allergies are another type of reaction. They can be mild or life-threatening. Skin reactions, such as hives and rashes, are the most common type. Anaphylaxis, a serious allergic reaction, is more rare.

    When you start a new prescription or over-the-counter medication, make sure you understand how to take it correctly. Know which other medications and foods you need to avoid. Ask your health care provider or pharmacist if you have questions.

    • Drug allergies
    • Drug-induced diarrhea
    • Drug-induced tremor

    Peripheral Nerve Disorders

    Also called: Neuritis, Peripheral neuritis, Peripheral neuropathy

    Your peripheral nerves are the ones outside your brain and spinal cord. Like static on a telephone line, peripheral nerve disorders distort or interrupt the messages between the brain and the rest of the body.

    There are more than 100 kinds of peripheral nerve disorders. They can affect one nerve or many nerves. Some are the result of other diseases, like diabetic nerve problems. Others, like Guillain-Barre syndrome, happen after a virus infection. Still others are from nerve compression, like carpal tunnel syndrome or thoracic outlet syndrome. In some cases, like complex regional pain syndrome and brachial plexus injuries, the problem begins after an injury. Some people are born with peripheral nerve disorders.

    Symptoms often start gradually, and then get worse. They include

    • Numbness
    • Pain
    • Burning or tingling
    • Muscle weakness
    • Sensitivity to touch

    Treatment aims to treat any underlying problem, reduce pain and control symptoms.
