PROMETRIUM progesterone hormones contain peanut oil
I tried to post this information on the discussion boards, but I kept getting an error message - so here
My 51 year old mother who (like myself) has an allergy to nuts, was just prescribed hormone
replacements for menopause. What she found in the package insert was a BIG SHOCK!
PROMETRIUM progesterone hormones contain peanut oil!!!
Although there was a warning in the insert, and her doctor was fully aware of her near death
experience in the ICU from anaphylactic shock, her doctor did not tell her the hormone contained
peanut oil. It's possible she was unaware because she contacted an allergist when my mother phoned
the her about this.
I have attempted to search the internet trying to find out if other hormones contain peanut oil -
unsuccessfully - however one web site definitely indicated that others out there do exist.
I would like to know if anyone out there knows of any BIRTH CONTROL PILLS or other hormones
containing peanut oil, so if you could post this message for me as an inquiry (and alert) I would greatly
Thank you in advance!
ps - by the way - GREAT web site!!! It's really comforting to know that people are becoming more
aware and are taking action to help save lives!
We called a pharmacy to see what they knew about this and they only had Superior brand in stock, and it did contain peanut oil. They did not know any more details. They suggested calling the manufacturers to find out.
