Tips, success stories, and coping strategies for Anaphylaxis

What tip would you give someone like me who was just diagnosed?
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of anaphylaxis, go to the ER immediately. The staff at the hospital will figure out what caused you to react. Whatever it is that made you react, STAY AWAY FROM IT.

What’s your best coping strategy?
  • Make sure every doctor I visit and my pharmacy know that any medicine that causes anaphylaxis is in my record. When I am prescribed a new med I check for reactions.

Besides medications, what else has worked for you?
  • Knowing the medicines that cause a reaction help avoid future épisodes. When I am prescribed something I haven't used before, I ask questions to avoid any problem. I also go to only one pharmacy and make sure the pharmacist is aware.
