If this hadn't mentioned pills it would be a simple 478.29 however because the doc mentioned that it is a reaction to the pills it is currently uncodable :( The doctor needs to state if the pills were administered properly - i.e were the pills a prescription that the patient took per order? (478.29 and E code) wrong pill given or taken or overdosed on? 977.9 ect - the list goes on. The doctor needs to be more specific on this one.
