Multiple Drug Allergies/Chemical Sensitivities
Does anyone else have multiple drug allergies/multiple chemical sensitivities? I have nearly 10 drugs I am allergic to, and the list feels like it is growing. I am also allergic to EDD (Ethylenediamine Dihydrochloride), which is why I am allergic to two antihistamines. The other drugs I am allergic to include 3 different antibiotics (in 3 different classes, leaving only 1 left that I can take--Sulfa drugs), 2 blood pressure meds (lisinopril and toprol); and most recently Flexeril, and possibly Lyrica and Cymbalta. Does anyone else have multiple drug allergies or chemical sensitivities like this? It seems like every new drug I try, my body just goes crazy. My allergic reactions to drugs always manifest themselves as severe hives/rash/itching, never anything anaphylactic in nature.
As an FYI, I have had FM for 17 years. The first few were a little dicey in terms of finding the right meds for the sleep disorder, learning to manage my life and coming to terms with it; but I lived incredibly well with it for the last 10+ years. A recent tolerance issue and an allergic reaction with sleep meds forced me off those I was taking and now we are trying to find a new one/combo that works for me--but drug allergies plague me.
Thanks to anyone who will share here.
