While medications are often designed to help us feel better, some patients can be allergic to them. Certain medications may cause some patients to experience abnormal symptoms stemming from a drug or medication allergy.
How Testing is Performed
Before testing can begin, you will meet with one of our highly trained allergy providers. During your initial evaluation, you will discuss your allergy history, the medications you are currently taking or are concerned with, and what your symptoms are after taking medications. While some patients have suspected medications they are allergic to, it’s not a requirement for testing. Our staff can help determine which medications to test and the proper form of testing. Our tests include skin prick, patch testing, and oral tests, among others. These tests are performed in our offices with one of our allergy providers.
