Abstract The clinical manifestations of oral reactions to the more commonly prescribed drugs have been presented. These reactions include the following conditions: stomatitis, ulceration and necrosis, opportunistic infections, hemorrhage, gingival hyperplasia, pigmentation, altered salivary function, and altered taste sensation. A patient who complains of any of these signs and symptoms should be thoroughly questioned regarding medication. If an offending drug can be identified, its alteration or elimination, in consultation with the prescribing clinician, will often result in resolution of the clinical problem.
