Eickhoff’s Extras: New in the News




Great news for patients with sulfa allergies!  New research demonstrates that those with sulfa allergies can take Celebrex.   Research has found that the structure between sulfa drugs and Celebrex is different enough that cross sensitivity is rare.   Patients who had life threatening reactions to sulfa medications should not take the medication though.
