Yes, I have an awful time with drugs, and it's not all that uncommon. I have a medic alert bracelet too.

I also keep a credit card-size card in my wallet with the word allergies at the top with a 2-sided list of things a first-responder would need to know. Besides that, I have in my purse, pages of complete lists folded in half and kept in a plastic case a pillowcase came in.

Some drugs don't work on me at all, like morphine. Some are true allergens, some are "just" sensitivities. Some drugs are just fine as long as they don't have added colors, flavors, preservatives or gelatin.

i told them three times i was allergic to drugs but they gave me morphine after a total knee replacement and i landed up on oxygen. doctors just never listen. one so-called nurse who lives in this area, says she is a RN, here said "what are you complaining about, they put you on oxygen". what can i say, lots of bad medical people out there.
