Drug allergies can range from minor skin rashes and hives to rare serious reactions such as difficulty breathing and anaphylactic shock. Anaphylaxis symptoms usually occur within minutes of exposure to an allergen in your medication but can occur a few hours after.

If you suspect you may be having a mild reaction to your medication, please discontinue use immediately and seek treatment from your local GP or Emergency Department.

Once it is safe to do so, please update us on the outcome of your face-to-face assessment via the support page here. We will put you in touch with your treating practitioner to check in and discuss ongoing treatment.
