Medicine sensitivity is common to people with toxic injury, chronic fatigue and chemical sensitivity. They need to be chosen carefully and started on low dose to test for tolerance, as recommended by the CDC for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

People with toxic injury often have multiple impairments to the Cytochrome P45O liver enzymes.  Most medications get detoxified through these enzymes.  If detoxification is slow, they can build up and cause toxicity reactions, pseudo allergic reactions and unexpected and sometimes very severe side effects.

People  who experience attacks of porphyria secondary to heavy metal toxicity (e.g. lead) should avoid any medication that can trigger a porphyria attack. Including birth control, barbituates, tranquilliser, sedatives, and other  “porphyrogenic” substances.  If a medication is broken down in the body by oxidation or hydroxylation processes, your doctor should prescribe another.

People with pharmacological food intolerance, can have pseudo allergic reactions to Aspirin, NSAIDS, other.

Dr. Bill Meggs, an ear, nose and throat specialist who has conducted research on chemical sensitivity, has found typical sinus inflammation on biopsy–including swelling, redness and “cobble stone” changes–in almost all of his MCS patients.  It  is common for doctors to misdiagnose this inflammation as a bacterial infection and prescribe treatment with antibiotics. Because chemically sensitive patients often develop reactions to antibiotics and other synthetic medications, and seem susceptible to yeast infection – candida, with antibiotic use, it is important that the doctor do additional tests to determine whether or not bacterial infectionis in fact present.

 

Avoiding general anesthesia if possible may be best.  Many procedures can now be done under local anesthesia. For very minor procedure, acupuncture may be a good choice.
