Multiple factors play a role in Drug side-effects.
- Because Drugs often act upon certain proteins, enzymes, or receptors in the body, and attach often, quicker than natural molecules, and exert actions at higher rates in comparison to natural molecules, the 'side-effects' are simply 'direct actions' and manifestations of the potency of the drug. However, it occurs because of rapid physiological changes by the body , by the means of actions on the molecular targets of the drug. Some people who get more severe side-effects, are people who were at a lower setpoint and likely had severe deficiency in whatever chemical the drug is acting on, or an excess at whatever the drug is reducing/blocking.
- General Health plays a large factor, for example, one is less likely to develop immune deficiencies to certain drugs if they are already very healthy. So medications that reduce white blood cells are often a result of their interactions with enzymes that may already be partially, or significantly impacted based on the current health of that individual.
- People with low Histamine will be particularly vulnerable to stimulants and medications that increase blood pressure | ! |
