Effects of beta-adrenergic and calcium antagonists on the development of anaphylactoid reactions
from radiographic contrast media during cardiac angiography.
Since some opioid analgesics show differences in both the amount of histamine they release (65-68,72) and the anatomical sites where this action occurs (66-68,89,91,92), avoiding an anaphylactoid reaction
may sometimes be effected by simply substituting one opioid drug for another; for example, substituting fentanyl for morphine following cutaneous release of histamine, or fentanyl or morphine for buprenorphine following histamine release in the lungs.
exercise, cold, heat, sunlight/UV radiation), medications and ethanol (anaphylactoid reactions
Common agents that usually cause anaphylactoid reactions
are contrast media used in diagnostic radiographic procedures, foods and drugs (Doherty, 1993; Hansen, 1998).
Some individuals, especially those with severe asthma, may have an anaphylactoid reaction
As a result, FDA permitted McNeil, before the drug's removal from the market, to drop from the package insert a proposed warning about the risk of anaphylactoid reaction
to patients who had previously manifested no allergic reactions to Zomax or other drugs in its class.(45) This is noteworthy, since the Government Accounting Office concluded that the agency's review procedures may be inadequate for identifying drug-induced risks before approval.
Most of the cases described in this context report acute coronary events, which happen alongside the allergic or anaphylactoid reaction
. Our case is unique in that, unlike classic Kounis syndrome, the acute coronary event in this case did not present concurrently with the allergic reaction; rather it took nearly 48 hours to present.

She has a significant history of anaphylactoid reaction
secondary to monosodium glutamate in the past.
These plant-based estrogens, coupled with her already high endogenous estrogens, caused an intense histamine and LTC4 release that led to the anaphylactoid reaction
. A food challenge with only the crab meat (but not the seasoning) therefore caused no reaction.
In severe cases, an anaphylactoid reaction
can occur, with light-headedness, nausea, bronchospasm, and syncope.
The common adverse effects of vancomycin include red man syndrome, renal toxicity, ototoxicity, cardiovascular depression and anaphylactoid reaction
. (3) There are reported cases of potentiation of neuromuscular blockage, mononeuritis multiplex, neuralgic amyotrophy and peripheral neuropathy after vancomycin infusion.
Intradermal testing after anaphylactoid reaction
to anaesthetic drugs; practical aspects of performance and interpretation.
One serious treatment-related event, an anaphylactoid reaction
and hypotension, was seen in an 85-year-old man.
Allergic reactions to certain drugs like penicillins (1), cephalosporins (2), ranging from urticaria to anaphylactic or anaphylactoid reaction
, are increasingly encountered in the daily clinical practice.
