Can you take naproxen and allopurinol together without having an anaphylactic reaction?

An anaphylactic reaction has nothing to do with taking medications together. Anaphylaxis is an allergic reaction caused by your body's response to a certain substance. When you eat or take something you are allergic to, you could have this sort of reaction where your mouth and throat swell up and block your breathing.

What is anaphylactic reaction to lidocaine?

Anaphylactic shock is the most horrible thing that you can face in your clinical practice. The anaphylactic shock to lidocaine is very rare. when you get it, the patient get collapsed and unconscious. He can not breath. He is chocked due to severe laryngospasm and tracheobronchial tree spasm. His blood pressure falls. So that the pulse can not be felt. What you get is palpitation and tremors. You have only three minutes in your hands to save the life of patients. That is more than enough time, provided you do not loose your confidence. You take out the adrenaline ampule from the anaphylactic kit. You inject half the ampule by intramuscular route in the deltoids muscle of patient. The other half may be given by subcutaneous route, if needed. Within few seconds he regain his consciousness. Then you give injection pheniramine maleate ( Injection Avil) one ampule intravenously. You give injection betamethasone 8 (Injection betnesol 2 ampules) mg IV. All the text books talk of injection hydrocortosone. It takes time to prepare the solution and at time the water for injection may not be available to dissolve the powder. Precious time may be wasted in all this. Betamethasone ( Betnesol) always worked in hundreds of such patients of anaphylactic shock. Betnesol has advantage of very long half life as compared to hydrocortisone. So that there is no rebound anaphylactic shock after few hours and you can safely sent the patient to his home, to be seen next day. Then you put IV line to be on safer side. Give DNS, NS or Ringers lactate and never dextrose solution. Patient is surprised to see the IV line. He does not know about the anaphylactic shock he got. With experience you handle the anaphylactic shock so silently that the other patients in your office do not know that something serious has happened behind the curtain.
