Doctor: Yes, you suffered from a severe drug hypersensitivity reaction and not a chemical poisoning. Moreover, the line of treat ment instituted at the ER, was as per standard protocal of managing such conditions and you should continue the therapy as per your doctor’s prescription. Also, it is important to make a mention about the drug reaction in your health card, to avoid recurrence.
