By the time a patient’s doctor decides to prescribe the drug for a lung condition, he or she has already spent years dealing with symptoms of asbestos exposure.
It’s not uncommon for people to experience an allergic reaction to a particular piece of asbestos, or even to the chemical compound that’s made up of asbestos and other materials.
Symptoms can range from mild reactions to life-threatening symptoms, and often depend on where the patient lives and what they’re exposed to.
For example, people living in New York City can develop an allergic response to asbestos.
The chemical compound in the asbestos that’s used in building materials can be toxic, and exposure to that compound can cause a number of health problems.
It can also lead to cancer, cardiovascular disease and other diseases.
