What is the chance of me having anaphylaxis to fludrocortisone? Is it higher than say Zantac (ranitidine) and other drugs or same? This terrifys me with any drug.
HIghly unlikely: I don't believe that this has been reported although anaphylaxis to solumedrol (methylprednisolone) (another form of cortisone) has been reported but the link is to the succinate ingredient and not to the cortisone molecule itself. Most of the cortisone allergy is related to contact dermatitis and not anaphylaxis. Your anxiety on this may be the cause for some of your reactions. Talk to an allergist. ...Read more

I took 450 milligrams of Zantac (ranitidine) and tested positive for meth on a store bought dip stick style ua given at work..I am not a drug user..What gives?!
Could Be False +: There is literature that with routine drug screens - which are great, and cost-effective - there are quite a few false positives, and the literature on Zantac (ranitidine) seems to corroborate that.

I've taken 4 ibuprofen(200 mg) 3xs today for pain- over the corse of 14 hours- I have acid reflux and feel I need to take my medicine (Zantac) can I?
If a person pre-medicates w/xyzal & zantac, (ranitidine) can they take an nsaid drug, if that drug has caused minor hives in the past? Get skin reaction only.
Possibly: Both xyzal (levocetirizine) & zantac have anti-histamine effects & may decrease or eliminate a mild reaction to nsaid. However, this can be dangerous. Repeat exposures to something you are allergic to can be more severe, including breathing & swallowing difficulties, swelling of the face, lips, tongue or mouth. 6 classes of nsaids exist; you may not be allergic to other NSAID classes. An allergist may help a lot. ...Read more
