I had a follow up with my doctor this week, and since my allergy tests are mainly negative despite a very positive history (anaphylatic reactions and mystery contact reactions), he said he would like me to avoid all NSAIDS and use Tylenol when possible. He was telling me there was some new research which shows using NSAIDS can make you more prone to an allergic reaction.

He said it is similar to exercise induced anaphylaxis, where you need to eat a certain food and then exercise. With the NSAIDS if you take them and eat a certain food, bang. He also used the allergy cup theory and said that taking an NSAID is similar to having the cup half full to begin with.

Has anyone heard of this? I did a quick google search but only found a one reference (although i didn't search very extensively).

I've heard of this as a theory but don't recall any specific research. Would be interested if anyone has a link.

This is one of the things we can tick off the list for our son. He had a VERY high fever as a young infant and we did alternate Tylenol and Ibuprofen. Pretty shortly after that, food allergies showed up.

Connected? You got me. Just one of the thousand possible culprits.

Hmmm...

Had ana rxn to aspirin before I gave up bananas, but it took my brain awhile to associate the throat itchiness to bananas (I was 5 when I had the ana rxn to aspirin). Dr told my mom I couldn't be allergic to bananas Smiley

Had ana rxn to bananas at age 23 (or thereabouts).

Had pretty bad rxn to ibuprofen at 29, told not to take NSaids anymore.

Had another bad rxn to a sulfa drug, but apparently that is related to the Nsaid allergy.

I'm a Tylenol girl now Smiley

I decided not to give dd Motrin anymore last week. We got a bottle of Tylenol just in case but now after reading this it's making me think it was best that I did do the switch.

Gufyduck, my allergy tests were all negative too. I have had some moderate to severe reactions as well.

Interesting, because I can't take tylenol or aspirin so Ibuprofen is the only thing that I tend to use. And I use it a lot because of chronic craniofacial pain. I think it takes over a month to leave your system completely so most people who take it probably constantly have it the body to some degree. I know I probably do.

I also have exercise-induced reactions, and to date I have not been able to discover a food connection. I wonder if the NSAIDs could be the missing link. Hmmmmmm.

Thanks for posting.

I have also read this somewhere but can not find a link. From what I remember, the NSAIDs break down the mucosal lining in the intestines with lead to "leaky gut". I definitely think it's one of the culprits...as I know many people who are allergic to NSAIDs and have adult onset allergies after taking large amounts of NSAIDs.
