Difficult to test: A 43 yo would like to know how to test for allergy to metamucil. There is no standardized test for this rare allergy and in general medication allergy (especially rare allergies) are hard to test. I am not sure what the symptoms of your allergic reaction are, but you should see an allergist for further evaluation. The allergist may be able to perform a prick to prick skin test or oral challenge
