The Dangers of Drug Interactions and Complications
Almost any medical procedure or condition has associated drugs intended to speed up the healing process or to control an individual’s symptoms. Each medication has different purposes, abilities, and targets, but can have an effect on more than one body part or system. There are certain drugs that should not be taken concurrently because of their reaction to each other. If the pharmacist or prescribing doctor overlooks this fact, the patient may be in danger of severely adverse health risks. Some of these include:
- Heart attack
- Organ and tissue damage
- Slowed or reversed healing process
- Reduced immune system
Patients should be able to trust doctors with their health without worrying about the complexities of medical treatment that requires years of education to understand.
