When I was a baby an allergies exam results was that I was allergic to aines and some other components in advil (ibuprofen). At 21 do I have the same allergies?

Probably not: Most babies outgrow their allergies by age 3 and they change constantly during that time which is why we rareloy test them unless it it might be life threatening.

Can I take advil cold and sinus with klonopin and lexapro (escitalopram)? What sinues medicine can I take can I get a list please? Can I also take ibuphrone with them?

Talk w/ Dr/druggist: The Advil IS ibuprofen. It's rare, but it can lead to bleeding w/ lexapro (escitalopram) in some folk. Watch for signs and call Dr immediately. It can also cause dizziness and fainting, so be careful and try to have someone near. The 1st two can also do that but if you've been ok so far - that's a good sign - just be careful.
