Suggested Questions And Answer :

allergic reaction phobia!!

I am sorry you are going through this right now.  First of all, you are not crazy.  Anxiety manifests itself in so many different ways but can definitely follow recognizable patterns in my opinion.  In my experience with it, we tend to fear the worst case scenario of whatever is bothering us.  For example, my original experience with anxiety dealt with concerns about my heart health.  So naturally, I thought that any pain, twinge, etc, was cause for alarm when in fact it was just normal everyday aches and pains that we have with life.  Also, don't Google. The internet is a a great resource, however, there is so much information out there that it is vitually impossible to filter the correct information out especially when your anxiety is going to steer you in the direction of your worst fear.  Any 'symptom' can be linked to any disease or fear if you look hard enough...heck, I actually have a slight headache right now and if I looked hard enough I could find at least one website that probably says that my head was going to explode.  My point is that we tend to fear the worst when the exact opposite is true. Have you or are you in any form of counseling for your anxiety?  I know for me, it helped tremendously.  It gave me the long term knowledge to confront it and deal with it.  I know it is frustrating right now, but keep your head will get through this.

allergic reactions

Hello!  I really don't know about allergic reactions and ssri's, however, since these AD's are all in the same "class", wouldn't it make sense that if you were allergic to one, you would be allergic to all?  This would be an excellent question for your doctor or even your pharmacist.  There is an older class of AD's called Tricyclics that you might try if you do turn out to allergic to SSRI's.   Good luck!

Gracious, you poor thing, no wonders you are stressed out!  It sounds to me like you may be germophobic: unreasonably afraid of becoming sick, and it drives you into panic whenever you even think there might really be some thing wrong with your health.  I would suggest you see a therapist who specializes in phobias. - Blu

Toradol injection

Just because you have asthma does not necessarily mean you will have a reaction to Toradol.  However, if you've ever had a severe allergic reaction to aspirin or other anti-inflammatory, toradol is contra-indicated (shouldn't be used). As for how long it would take for an allergic reaction to start, it can vary, depending on how severe the allergy is, however, with injectable meds, it is usually faster, as the medication gets into the system quicker than with oral medications. Two different people may have two completely different reactions to the Toradol - not everyone reacts to medications the same and not everyone who has allergies gets the same type of reactions, even if they are allergic to the same things.  Again, the amount of time before an allergic reaction can vary from person to person also. I hope this is helpful.
