Such a problem can cause symptoms to become more severe and the disease to progress since the appropriate treatments cannot be administered to a patient when they experience an allergic reaction to the medication.
Additionally, some people also experience an intolerance toward certain drugs. Such a condition can be just as problematic for a patient who is in dire need of medication to assist with the treatment of a bacterial infection, for example. Unlike an allergic reaction, an intolerance refers to a patient not being able to tolerate the side-effects that certain drugs cause.

Rituximab and Cetuximab, drugs utilized in Monoclonal antibody therapy, also causes allergic reactions rather commonly.
Symptoms Of Drug Allergies
Identifying the particular symptoms of a drug allergy is very important. This will help to determine such a reaction early on and avoid the side-effects from becoming more severe or even life-threatening. According to Mayo Clinic, allergy symptoms should appear within the first 60 minutes after a patient has taken drugs that may be allergic to. In rarer cases, a patient may experience the side-effects at a later period of time, such as after several hours or after a day.

Bioresonance Therapy And Drug Allergies
Bioresonance therapy has long been utilized as a method for treating a variety of health conditions, diseases and even some of the more common ailments that patients complain of. When it comes to drug allergies and intolerances, bioresonance therapy, once again, poses as a potential option for fighting against this unpleasant condition. Bioresonance therapy is utilized in different ways to assist in the treatment of drug allergies.
The first way bioresonance therapy is useful for assisting patients who are suffering from a drug allergy is to help them identify particular chemicals they may be allergic or resistant to. There are times when a patient uses multiple drugs and experiences a reaction to all of them – in such a case, it is important to identify a particular chemical that is causing such a reaction to develop. In addition, certain bioresonance treatments have been shown to reduce the severity of intolerances to some drugs.
Drug allergies and intolerances can become a serious problem when a person develops a health condition that requires the administration of specific drugs. This can even lead to life-threatening consequences, and turning toward alternative drugs that contain different ingredients are not always as effective. Bioresonance therapy offers a way for patient with these problems to treat their intolerances and their allergies toward pharmaceutical drugs to help them gain appropriate treatments for their conditions without being exposed to the risk of an intolerance or allergic reaction.
