18 years ago, I had an anaphylactic reaction after taking Bayer aspirin. Dr said never take aspirin again! I haven't. Do you agree?

1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
Anaphylaxis is a life threatening reaction.
If you have had that reaction to Aspirin in the past, a rechallenge with the same medication is unwise. If there were no alternative, then it may be reasonable to attempt a desensitization process., but that is not the case here.
