If I'm allergic to sulfa can I take lomotil? I had a reaction to the sulfa salt in Levbid. My sulfa allergy is bad enough that I have to watch what vegetables I eat. I'm also allergic to latex, eggs, cleocin, flagyl. I'm not sure which sulfate I'm allergic to. Also am hypersensitive to sulfides and can't drink wine. I don't attempt beer because I have celiacs. Just thought if I provided all my allergies, you might see a common thread. My allergies are bad enough I have an epi pen

Hi Angela,

Based on my research, Lomotil does contain a sulfa-based active ingredient (atropine sulfate)... So I'd say it is something to stay away from if you have a sulfa allergy.

I also wasn't aware that there were so many types of sulfa/sulfur/sulfate allergies? But an article I found mentions that, by weight, "sulfur" is regarded as one of the most abundant mineral elements naturally present in the human body.

This tells me that there in fact different forms that could be effecting people differently..or theoretically speaking - that just having more than your body needs (getting extra through medication) outside of the normal levels produced in our bodies, may be the reason some people experience side effects or allergic reactions to these pills? This is just mere speculation, but if anyone else has more specific details to share relating to the above, it would be greatly appreciated.

Hope this helps!

Bed wetting is a very disturbing problem to many healthy adults also. Urologists can not help, because they urinate normally during day time. There is no sugar problem with these patients, they do normal work. Some are benefited by Nexito Forte for some years. After that it does not help. What are the alternative remedy?
