When is your reaction more than a common side effect?

Georgia residents like you may sometimes have to treat aches and pains. People use over the counter pain relief for a number of things, from headaches to muscle cramps and more. However, sometimes adverse reactions may occur, or you may have an allergy that you weren’t aware of.

There are some side effects that are common in pain relievers, and it has been stated by Web MD that every medication has some type of unintented effect on the taker. However, there are some signs that can be indicative of something more serious. If you have an allergy to some of the ingredients, you may experience a rash or severe nausea. However, there are some potentially fatal reactions or issues that can occur. This includes:

  •          Stomach ulcers
  •          Kidney problems
  •          Temporary or permanent liver damage

While less common than typical adverse reactions, you should keep your eye peeled for signs of these complications. In some cases, the chance of a heart attack or stroke can even be raised, though that is often related to dosage rather than sensitivities or allergies.

In comparison, the more common side effects to these drugs are milder and can include things like heartburn and less severe nausea. These issues are considered to be relatively normal and you will not need to seek a doctor for them. Generally, they will stop when you are done taking the medication.

However, severe reactions to even over the counter drugs can be very serious. If you feel that your health is in jeopardy or have suspicions about the medication you are taking, you may wish to contact your doctor.
