Does having several food allergies make it more possible to have an allergy to medicines? My 4.5 yr old was prescribed 3 medications yesterday and he hasn't been on meds since he was 4 months old. I was wondering if its ok to give all 3 meds at once or to introduce them 1 at a time, like I had to with food. Thank you!
What are we talking about? antibiotic, decongestant, cough suppressant....? Depends on what they are. I would say if you are more comfortable doing them one at a time then go ahead but I would start with the antibiotic.
As the PP said, it depends on the type of medicine. Is the doctor that prescribed the medications aware of your sons allergies? To be safe, I would talk to the pharmacist or your doctor before giving him anything.
There's an antibiotic, steroid, and decongestant. He is aware of the food allergies and both him and pharmacists have said I can give the Benadryl prescribed to combat the food allergies with the medications he was prescribed yesterday. I started him off with the antibiotic last night when we got home.
