Did you know that…..
the wide variety of toxic drugs reactions is called “Adverse Drugs Reactions” ?
The Adverse Drugs Reactions may be classified as:
- Mild. No antidote, therapy, or prolongation of hospitalization necessary.
- Moderate. Requires a change in drug therapy, although not necessarily cessation of the drug, or may prolong hospitalization or require special treatment.
- Severe. Potentially life-threatening, requires discontinuation of the drug and specific treatment of the adverse reaction.
- Lethal. Directly or indirectly contributes to the death of the patient.
