Feeling anxious, a busy mom sought help from a doctor. He prescribed two medications, and at first she felt better. Then the scalding rash began.
Soon she was in a hospital as her skin peeled off in sheets. Her husband feared she would never come home.
Only after it was too late to stop the reaction did anyone figure out that Becki Conway had taken a potentially dangerous mix of medications that can trigger the immune system to attack the body's own cells.
 
Drug interactions in which one drug alters the effect of another are a hidden epidemic in America.  The tragedy is that much of the harm is preventable. In Conway’s case, health providers failed her at nearly every turn. http://trib.in/1TaiUjH
The first symptoms mimicked the flu. Becki Conway had a sore throat, a dry cough and irritated sinuses.
