I'm going to start this medication next week and the prescribing doctor doesn't have any other of his patients on it!
What should I discuss with my healthcare provider before taking Ragwitek (ragweed pollen allergen extract)?
You should not use ragweed pollen allergen extract if you have ever had an allergic reaction to similar pollen-extract medicines, or if you have:
severe or uncontrolled asthma; or
a history of allergic reaction that affected your esophagus (the tube that connects your mouth and stomach) and caused heartburn or trouble swallowing.
To make sure ragweed pollen allergen extract is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:
uncontrolled high blood pressure;
mouth sores, swollen gums, or other wounds or irritations inside your mouth;
if you take an antidepressant or migraine headache medicine; or
if you take medicine to treat heart problems, high blood pressure, or a prostate disorder.
Hope it works for you... masso.-
