Hello, Marie! How are you?

Yes, it is a sulfa based antibiotic, so there is a chance you may be allergic to it.

The FDA warns that allergic reactions to it may include symptoms, such as nausea, dizziness, trouble breathing, hives, itching and possibly anaphylactic shock.

However, if you are only allergic to sulfur, you might be able to take it. I am allergic to this antibiotic, but I am not allergic to sulfur.

How did you discover you were allergic to it? That might help clear this up, because they are different.
