What are some senior health care implications of allergies?

Senior health and drug allergies

We can often have allergic reaction to medications. Antibiotics are the leading drug allergens; pain relief meds (even aspirin and ibuprofen) are also linked to allergic reactions. Be sure to ask your doctor about what side effects to expect before taking any new medication. And always remember to notify your senior health care physician of your adverse reactions to meds; especially important when admitted to the hospital.
