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.

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

Depends: It really depends on why you are having reflux. Best is to fix the root of the problem. Long term stomach acid suppression can lead to micronutrient deficiencies and cause health problems. ...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. Gas chromatography- mass spectroscopy is considered the "gold standard" in most scientific literature, though in practice it is not often performed in many clinics and hospitals. Also - 450mg of Zantac (ranitidine) is a lot! ...Read more
