GLOSSARY (summary)


osmotic laxative
Laxative to make stools more liquid by retaining water in the contents of the intestine. It is devoid of toxicity.


edema
Accumulation of water or lymph causing localized swelling.


allergic reaction
Reaction due to hypersensitivity of the organism to a drug. Allergic reactions can take a wide variety of aspects: urticaria, angioedema, eczema, eruption of pimples resembling measles, etc. Anaphylactic shock is a generalized allergic reaction that causes discomfort due to a sudden drop in blood pressure.


overdose
Excessive intake of a drug may result in an increase in the intensity of adverse effects or even in the development of specific adverse effects.
This overdose may result from accidental or voluntary poisoning for suicide, so consult your local Poison Control Center (listed in the appendix to the book). However, in most cases, overdose is the result of an error in the understanding of the prescription, or the search for an increase in efficacy by exceeding the recommended dosage. Finally, untimely self-medication may lead to excessive absorption of the same substance contained in different drugs. Some drugs are particularly prone to this risk because they are (wrongly) considered to be harmless: vitamins A and D, aspirin, etc. Stopping or decreasing drug intake helps to remove the disorders associated with an overdose.


symptomatic treatment
Treatment that suppresses or alleviates the symptoms of a disease without addressing its cause.


urticaria
Eruption of pimples on the skin, whose origin is mostly allergic. The buds look like nettles and their color varies from pale pink to red.
