18 years ago, I had a bad reaction after taking asprin. I was told never to take it again. Do you agree or can I try in a doctor's office setting?

In brief: Don't ever take ASA!

There are 2 types of severe allergic reactions to aspirin.
Rhinosinusitis-asthma (r-a) and urticaria-anaphylaxis (u-a). R-a reactions start off with pouring runny nose, nasal blockage, shortness of breath and severe asthma. This one is associated with nasal polyps and is also triggered by ibuprofen, Naproxen and other nsaids. U-a reactions are itchy hives alone or progress to anaphylactic shock.

What kind of reaction did you have? If it was an anaphylactic reaction, i would suggest never to take it again.
