Supplement Allergies?
skodaddy posted:
I have been dealing with chronic congestion and coughing for a year and a half. Has anyone ever discovered an allergy to a supplement by any chance (glucosamine, fish oil, flax seed, etc.)? Grasping at straws here.

I have had reactions to supplements in the past. Sometimes I reacted to gluten in the capsules, or gelatin or another inactive ingredient. You could be sensitive to any of the ingredients. If you take more than one supplement, I would suggest taking one and see if you still have congestion and cough. If not, then try adding another supplement. But I would give each supplement about 2 weeks to see if you are having issues. Just my personal thoughts and opinions based on my experiences. Good luck.
