The aim of this cross-sectional observational study was to explore quality of life and well-being in patients with drug-induced anaphylaxis. Two validated tools were used: the Drug Hypersensitivity Quality-of-Life Questionnaire (DrHy-Q) and the Psychological General Well-Being Index (PGWBI). Sixty-five patients (13 males) underwent data analysis. The mean DrHy-Q score was 62.82 ± 12.1. Mean PGWBI score was 64.03 ± 17.66. DrHy-Q score was significantly correlated with PGWBI total score (r = -0.314; P = 0.011) and with the following domains: Anxiety (r = -0.260; P = 0.036), Depressed mood (r = -0.406; P = 0.001), Positive well-being (r = -0.251; P = 0.004), and General Health (r = -0.352; P = 0.004). Compared with the Italian reference population, patients had a significantly reduced PGWBI total and domain score. Our results highlight for the first time how impaired HRQoL and distress commonly feature in survivors to anaphylactic reactions to drug.
