I have been feeling nauseas and vomitting with no energy and I went to the doctors.He has prescribed me anti nauseas tablets (cyclizine and promethizine) but both have povidone as one of the ingredients.Problem is I am allergic to iodine,and I have taken 3 doses of each tablet but feel worse.....anybody have an allergy to iodine and been told not to take medication with povidone in?
I do not want to end up in ICU yet again for something that can be avoided if possible! confused

Me! I recently switched to a generic Zyrtec to save money. Just kept getting sicker and sicker, Allergist finally linked it to the povidone in the generic. Surprisingly, pharmacies use povidone in quite a large number of generic pills. I also take CellCept and the pharmacist found one version that did not use the povidone, Oh and generic Benadryl has povidone so be aware!
Take care, Fran
