Title: Drugs with potencial to induce photosensitivity
As pharmacists, we are obliged to provide patients with information regarding the correct and safe use of their medicine. There is a number of drugs with photosensitizing potential that can cause adverse reaction after exposure to sunlight. In the pharmacy, we must therefore warn the patient about the risky drugs and recommend appropriate behavior that leads to the minimization of the development of this adverse effect. My presentation summaries selected medication and drug groups for which a clinically significant risk of photosensitivity reaction development has been demonstrated.
