My DS has terrible milk allergies. We have had situations wherein milk is used as an inactive ingredient in medications, too - like in certain types of Benadryl. Generally, I have to read the package insert to find an inactive ingredient listing. We cope by:
1) keeping on-hand a safe version of any OTC med he could need... allergy, cold, fever, sinus, whatever. This reduces the need to run to the store and grab a med at midnight without knowing if its allergy friendly
2) making sure any doc perscribing any meds checks it for milk products in the desk reference, then having the pharmacist double check... and never, ever taking a generic substitution (because sometimes generics have different inactive ingredients).
Wow.Thanks. My oldest is allergic to milk, and I had no idea about these medications. I guess we've been lucky so far.
