... Allergies -if one had an allergic reaction to the intactive ingredient of a drug, would the effects of that allergic reaction be stimulated and more severe due to the active drug's presence reacting with the allergic reaction to the inactive ingredient? Or possibly change or increase the effects of the active drug?
Hello & welcome to the site. As an allergy sufferer my self, it doesn't change the active amount of the drug in the med or pill, but can cuse a life threatening situation for people allergic to things like glycol, or in my case corn. Corn starch is used as a binder in most meds in the pill form to hold it together. I keep an epi pen handy at all times because of this. Be sure to ask your new customers if they have known allergies to inactive ingredients. Most who do, know & will tell you so, or have you compound their meds. Hope this helped answer your questions...
