Our expert says:
There are various ingredients in different medications, other than the active ingredient, and it is possible that anyone of these may be responsible for the reactions you mention.
The kind of reactions you mention fall into the category of 'anaphylactic shock' reactions which are very serious and can require emergency medical intervention.
The fact that you have the same reaction to Voltaren indicates that you are very alllergic to the antiinflammatory group of medications. The diagnosis is already made and I would therefore not take ANY chances and stay off all antiinflammatory medication. Check labels very carefully before taking anything and I would also suggest that you wear a medic alert identification tag.
