Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Any drug may cause allergic reaction. If in doubt, stop the drug and see your doctor.
There re several classes of drugs and several drugs in each class -they can find one for you - but it will take time... Don't rush for surgery - it is not an emergency... Wait for proper control

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
