Thanks for using HealthcareMagic

Allergies to medications present similarly as does allergies to most substances. In most cases allergies can present with swelling, rash, itching. In some cases of substances taken orally (food or meds)- abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting or diarrhea, can sometimes indicate allergies to medications. Persons can experience some or all of the above.
Allergic reactions differ from side effects. The side effects symptoms of a drug are specific to that particular drug while allergic reactions present similarly.

I hope this helps
