You are your own best advocate when it comes to sulfite allergies/sensitivities. The computer program most pharmacies use do not have allowances for customized entries for the allergy list, they only have entries for known commercial pharmaceutical products. Thus, if you are allergic to a food or preservative, they can't put that on the main list, it has to go in a "comments" section. Not all pharmacists will check the "comments" section every time you fill a prescription...so you have to be your own advocate and always, always check the ingredients.
