My grandmother is highly allergic to sulfa drugs (stopped her heart once). I've never been tested for a sulfa drug allergy. I have been recommended to take glucosamine sulfate for my knee, but I'm nervous I may have a reaction to it.
Can a person with a possible Sulfa drug allergy take Glucosamine Sulfate?

The sulfa that people are allergic to is actually sulfonamides. Sulfate salts arent sulfonamides. You should be fine.
