Any Medication That Can Cause Body Temperature To Rise?
Is there really a drug that can cause heat illness on purpose? If I may know what the medicine is?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Normally, body temperature ranges from 36.5 to 37.5 degrees Celsius. Body heat (hyperthermia) is defined as body temperature which rises above 37.5 degrees Celsius. Usually, this condition occurs due to infection, can be due to viruses or bacteria. It could also, hyperthermia occur due to other reasons, for example:
Drug side effects
Impaired immunity or inflammation
Malignancy (malignant tumor)
Metabolic disorders (eg gout, porphyria)
Post transfusion reaction
Tissue damage (for example due to hemolysis, surgery, infarction, rhabdomyolysis)
Thromboembolic disease, and so on
As mentioned above, some types of drugs can indeed cause body temperature to rise. Here are some examples of the drugs in question:
Central nervous system stimulants
Antibiotics, and so on
