ICD-10-CM Code T50.905

Adverse effect of unspecified drugs, medicaments and biological substances

Version 2020 Replaced Code Non-Billable Code Adverse Effect

Not Valid for Submission

T50.905 is a "header" nonspecific and non-billable code code, consider using a code with a higher level of specificity for a diagnosis of adverse effect of unspecified drugs, medicaments and biological substances. The code is NOT valid for the year 2020 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions. The ICD-10-CM code T50.905 might also be used to specify conditions or terms like abnormal drug tolerance, abnormal movement, acneiform drug eruption, acneiform eruption, acneiform eruption due to chemical, acquired acanthosis nigricans, etc

ICD-10:T50.905
Short Description:Adverse effect of unsp drug/meds/biol subst
Long Description:Adverse effect of unspecified drugs, medicaments and biological substances

Consider the following ICD-10 codes with a higher level of specificity:

  • T50.905A - Adverse effect of unspecified drugs, medicaments and biological substances, initial encounter
  • T50.905D - Adverse effect of unspecified drugs, medicaments and biological substances, subsequent encounter
  • T50.905S - Adverse effect of unspecified drugs, medicaments and biological substances, sequela

Replaced Code

This code was replaced in the 2020 ICD-10 code set with the code(s) listed below. The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has published an update to the ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes which became effective October 1, 2019. This code was replaced for the FY 2020 (October 1, 2019 - September 30, 2020).

Information for Patients


Drug Reactions

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 ginkgo 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.
