Do you have any food or drug allergies? 

 

How did you figure out you had an allergy to it?

Do you have any food or drug allergies?  No.   I am sensitive to the drug erythromycin, and anything in the "ycin" family.   They all make me throw up.  So I say I am allergic to it because I don't want to take those antibiotics and get sicker. 

My son is allergic to peanuts.   That one is scary.   He asphyxiates.   We carry an epi-pen everywhere.

 

How did you figure out you had an allergy to it?   Throwing up after taking it as a teenager.   I tried again about 2 years ago.   Nope.   Still nausea inducing.

 No food allergies that I am aware of, but I am allergic to Phenergan and Reglan

How did you figure out you had an allergy to it?

Phenergan and Reglan are anti-nausea drugs I was given in the ICU when my pancreas stopped functioning. I felt like I was going to jump out of my skin - restless legs and arms, jumpy. Not sure why they were giving me anti-nausea drugs, since I don't recall feeling nauseous - I think it might be a standard preventative measure.  I don't recall if they switched me to a different drug or just discontinued it. I was pretty out of it the first couple days.

I had a list offoodsI was allergic to when I was younger. As I have gotten older, Ihave out grown most of them.  No drug allergies that I know of.

How did I find out? Lots of allergy testing!!
