Heya VA

Still around, mostly lurking all of the interesting conversations. Hope all is well?

Two of my kids had a mild reaction to amoxicillin one time. Now they avoid prescribing it.

I think it might have just been something with that batch...

"Was that the sound of VA's head exploding? Lol"

It would have been, had I not been wearing a copper protective wristband.

It gives me a terrible sick headache. At first I just thought that they were ineffective against migraines and my symptoms were from migraine. Now I believe that my symptoms are from the Tylenol itself after I was accidentally prescribed a form of Tulonol because my doctor didn't want me to take ibuprofen or aspirin.

FF My body temperature raises dramatically when exposed to an MRI machine. Not uncomfortable enough to do damage, but enough to make me sweat around the area under imaging all the way through the gown and my skin is quite warm.

DD- what issues have you had with Tylenol? I ask bc I've had issues also--- when prescribed taking it nightly at the highest dose I had frightening, violent, graphic and bloody dreams.

I am curious about that. I got sick after taking Griseofulvin, which is a drug that "never" causes anything more than slight nausea. I was sick every 20 minutes for about 6 hours. The doctor assured med that it was just a coincidence and we resumed the medicine after a three week recovery period. The next time, I was sick every 5 minutes for about 12 hours and was too weak to even pick up me head.

I've also seemingly had adverse reactions to Tylenol of all things, but my reaction varies so I don't know exactly what is what.

I think I've had another reaction to medication with a headache so bad that I went to the emergency room. It might not be the medication or I might just need time to adjust to it but I just can't seem to make myself take it. Each time I have a bad reaction it seems to intensify with each use.

None of my reactions are in the anaphylactic catagory so doctors don't worry about it.

At this point, I'd rather risk a stroke than a bad reaction. Those have been less painful.

I reacted to another medicine

What we call "penicillin" is actually a class of drugs. Ampicillin is one of them. Generally people who are allergic to one penicillin drug are allergic to all of them, and often the related cephalosporins too.

A lot of these 10%ers have been "diagnosed" by their doctors as being allergic, based on reports of their patients. It's much easier for a doctor to just tell you that you're allergic to penicillin and write you a script for something else than it is to conduct allergy confirmation experiments.

Part of the perception of rising rates of allergies comes from this. Many people aren't allergic to the things they think they are allergic to.

If you're allergic (mildly- breaking out in itchy hives) to ampicillin will you also be allergic to penicillin?
