Consider allergy ref: Thanks for your question. Depending on the NSAID allergy, sometimes it can be desensitized through introduction of small amounts initially, then gradual increase in dose under supervision by an allergy specialist. However, would discuss the side effects/risks/benefits with a specialist.
