Hello, Suzy! How are you?

Are you allergic to sulfur, or to sulfa drugs? They aren't actually the same exact things.

When you are talking about being allergic to the sulfa drugs it actually refers to Sulfonamides.

And no, Meloxicam isn't one of them. It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I’m allergic to sulfa drugs (found out with bactrim, itchy rash on my arms) and just took meloxicam yesterday. it landed me in the urgent care. body full of hives and swollen lips. is there something else in common between the two? maybe something similar besides the sulfonamides? perhaps something the meloxicam has more of than the bactrim? im not allergic to any other drugs that i know of besides these two.
