    Question Allergic to aspirin...Can I take Xenadrine?

    Hello! Just wondering...I have about 15 lbs to loose and would like to take Xenadrine or Hydroxycut but I am allergic to aspirin...The label says it contains "white willow bark", a precursor for aspirin...What does that mean?

    no one should take X imo but in your case defiately not since most likely the aspirin precurser will cause the same allergic reaction that aspirin does.... white willow bark contains a natural aspirin-like compound and this compound once isolated led to the development of aspirin.

    Hi Ariathe,

    I'm also allergic to aspirin, do you keep an Epipen on you just in case of an emergency? I'm also trying to find out as much as I can from people that have an allergy to aspirin. Thanks!!!
