Is there medication without any trace of coconut?
An_249612 posted:
Hello. I am a 24 year old girl who has a coconut allergy. Is there any medication that does not have a trace of coconut in it? All of these ingredients are coconut derived and I have never found a medication i can use without a worse reaction when I am sick or in an allergic reaction. Does anybody know of any? I'm tired of doctors making me worse since they didn't know an ingredient was coconut or had a 50% chance or more of being coconut.
