    Your concerns are best taken to your sister's Healthcare Provider (MD or NP).

    Any substance ingested or injected has the potential for causing an allergic reaction.
    It is best before administering medication to at least review the action and potential side effects and signs of adverse reaction, and how to treat such a reaction (look up Rules of Medication Administration). There are many other issues to consider when administering medication to a patient.
    You may also wish to look up Complications of IV infusions.
    Or inquire of one of your nursing instructors.

    I hope your sister is OK.
