I am allergic to sulfa containing medications. I just bought a cough syrup (Torex-BR) and it has Terbutaline sulphate. Is this also sulfa?

In brief: Check with pharmacy

SUlfa drugs are a class of drugs called sulfonimides, Terbutaline is not in that class, and the sulfate refers to a part of the terbutaline.
Should be ok, but always best to check with the pharmacist, or you obstetrician. Hope this helps!
