Sulfite Allergy & Xolair Shots
cocomama5 posted:
I have been recently diagnosed with a sulfite allergy. I had four anaphylactic reactions before my allergist and I were able to determine the cause. Most of the reactions were similar to severe asthma attacks; however, I experienced severe vomiting along with severe coughing and breathing difficulties during one of the reactions. I did use my Epi-Pen, Benadryl, and Albuterol inhaler with the last two reactions. I have recently begun Xolair shots and am hopeful they will help my asthma as well as my allergies and eczema. I am interested in hearing from anyone else who may have a sulfite allergy and/or are taking Xolair shots. Thanks!

I have taken xolair shots for a little over a year now. I went from barely being able to breathe to where I can breathe a lot better. I am very happy that I am taking it. GOD BLESS
