Medications are given to treat a specific disease and as they do so they can result in unwanted effects, one of which is adverse drug reaction. These reactions manifest in different forms. It is the duty of the health professionals to identify and report such events to the responsible body so that the proper measures are taken accordingly. In my experience, most of these events occur in patients who are allergic to a specific group of medication and the patient is not aware of it. It is not a common practice in our health care provision to ask and identify if our patient has an allergy to a medication which leads to facing unnecessary drug reactions. If we do so, we will for sure decrease the event of adverse drug reactions by a substantial amount.
