Hi,

Welcome to just answer

Any medicine can cause an allergic reaction in the body. Its good that you immediately stopped embeda and took benadryl. If you inform your treating doctor that you had an 'adverse drug reaction' to embeda, then he will change you back to the original medication.

Hope this information is helpful

Regards

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
