I have TONS of allergies. Many animal, some food, medications... I had an allergic reaction to my first and 2nd infusion so far (third scheduled soon) and they just stopped the infusion, administered more benedryl and then restarted the infusion at a slower rate. This was with me being premedicated with tylenol, hydrocortisone, and benedryl... but they had it under control.
you should be fine! if you have a reaction, they will take care of it, just make sure you tell them if you have trouble breathing, are itchy, shaky, sweaty or just don't feel right.
