Right: In this case , you may be allergic to both. Do you develop hives from aleve or mobic (meloxicam)? If you have hives from all nsaids, then it blows away the current thinking of NSAID hives is related to a specific nsaid. Medicine is always evolving and it is patients like you who can help us broaden our knowledge.
