Drug Reactions (A New MedlinePlus Health Topic)

From the Medline Health Topic 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 [including interactions with other drugs, foods, supplements, and diseases].

Always ask your health care provider what you need to avoid when you start taking a new medication. Also, if you do take medicine, do not start a new over-the-counter drug without first checking with your healthcare provider or pharmacist.

Drug reactions topics include links in the following areas
** Overviews
***Specific Conditions
**Patient Handouts
