Ibuprofen Allergy and Asthma

Posted by @dalaine00, May 17, 2012

Hi, I just wanted to let people know that if you have asthma, you might want to talk with your doctor about whether you should NSAIDs. I just got over eosophinilic pneumonia which was brought on by an ibuprofen allergy. I went in for a checkup yesterday and found out that an ibuprofen allergy may have been what has caused my asthma to be so severe for the last few years. I used ibuprofen daily for back pain from a lower spine injury. So I just wanted to put out a warning to people that this is a rather common allergy and people with asthma need to watch for signs of allergy.

Absolutely. Beta blockers can also be counter-indicative with asthma that is allergy based. You may possibly be able to tweak dosage amounts so that a therapeutic modicum of relief is achieved. Otherwise, there is always the alternative of acetaminophen which may be as or more strong than your other versions of ibuprofen.
