With increased attention, both of these types of drug events could be minimized. Adverse reactions are commonly caused by allergic reactions to medications and interactions between multiple medications. Any given medication will cause allergies in some proportion of patients, and often the allergies will not be foreseeable prior to use of the drug. Interactions between multiple medications are often not determined in the pre-market phase of drug testing, so they too can cause ADRs in patients taking more than one drug. Although these complications seem unpreventable, there are ways
