I have been taking this medication, why is it itchy? So do I continue to take the medication or stop? Thanks.
Hi Ika, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
The itching that you feel after taking the drug can be caused due to drug allergy. Usually will be accompanied by complaints such as rashes or bumps on the skin, coughing, fever, swelling, itching, even to shortness of breath. Allergies to drugs are caused by an immune system reaction with certain substances. For that you should stop using drugs that can cause symptoms as above. And you should be able to carry out further consultations with your doctor regarding the use of these drugs, so that doctors who prescribe these drugs can replace them with other drugs. If it is needed, the doctor will be able to carry out several physical examinations or supporting examinations on you.
Thank you, hope that helps.
