Most drugs contain inactive ingredients that are capable of causing an adverse reaction, according to investigators at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in the U.S.
These otherwise unnecessary ingredients are usually added to improve a pill’s colour or shelf-life, but the study authors found more than 92 per cent of the 42,052 oral medications tested contained at least one ingredient that can cause reactions in sensitive individuals.
Around 45 per cent contained lactose and 33 per cent had a food dye.
This raises questions about how medications are labelled.
