Medications To Avoid If You Have A Peanut Allergy

As anyone who lives with food allergies knows, certain foods can be dangerous, even life-threatening. If you are allergic, you know to avoid the food allergens, to diligently ask about food contents and to constantly check for exposure in unlikely places. Do you also check your medications, prescriptions, and supplements?

Sustanon

Sustanon is used as a hormone replacement therapy for men with low testosterone. It is an injectable treatment which contains peanut oil. Avoid with a peanut allergy.

Prometrium Progesterone

This prescription is used by post-menopausal women in combination with estrogen. It is usually prescribed to women whose menstrual cycles stop before menopause occurs. It includes peanut oil.

Glucosamine Sulfate

This is a common supplement used for arthritis and joint pain. Since glucosamine sulfate is derived from the shells of crabs, lobster or shrimp, people with shellfish allergies must avoid exposure. While shellfish allergies most often are triggered by the meat and not the shell, it doesn’t make sense to risk a reaction.

Fish Oil

Fish oil supplements are very popular for a variety of reasons. From Alzheimer’s to autism, they are often recommended as a healthful addition to a diet. This would not be true for anyone with a shellfish allergy. While not shellfish, it’s possible that on a molecular level there has been a transference of allergens. It’s safer to get your omega fatty acids from flaxseed oil.

Never take anything for granted. Consult your doctor and enlist the help of your pharmacist when deciding which medications and supplements to take.
