I went to my doctor and was told I have bronchitis turning to pneumonia. I have very bad food allergies as well as medicine allergies so all of my medication must be compounded in order to avoid corn products or bi-product. Any little bit of corn sends me into anaphylactic shock, requiring epinephrine and massive amounts of diphenhydramine. My doctor and I knew it would be difficult to get the antibiotic so she suggested that I go to Athena Pharmacy. I took all of prescriptions to Athena Pharmacy at 2025 N Mt Juliet Rd #100, Mt Juliet, TN 37122. They were as follows: • Cough syrup to include promethazine & dextromethorphan – made with no corn products or corn by-products • Prednizone taper pack – made with no corn products or corn by-products • Ibuprophen 400mg – made with no corn products or corn by-products • Naproxen Sodium – made with no corn products or corn by-products • Cefdinir 300 mg – made with no corn products or corn by-products I also gave the pharmacy assistant the things that I am allergic to. They are as follows: (I did not provide all of the foods that I am allergic other than corn) • CORN • DEXTROSE • Red Dye • Penicillin • Augmentin • Levoquin • Singulair • Contrast • Doxycycline • Sucrose • Xantham Gum • Acetaminophen The pharmacy assistant checked on these prescription requests and explained that they would be able to fill the ibuprophen and prednisone but would have to talk to the doctor about a different cough syrup and antibiotic and would be unable to get the powder for the Naproxen Sodium. After some research, the pharmacy assistant found two antibiotics she thought would work for me. One a liquid and another a coated tablet. My doctor wanted me to reach to ingredients and see which one I would be more comfortable trying. This is a snip of what I received on 3/5 to choose from that according to the pharmacy assistant does not contain corn products: So I began to dig to see what each of these ingredients are or can be made from. This is what I found. In the Cefpodoxime tablet, it appears Carbonmethylcellulose sodium, magnesium stearate, sodium lauryl sulfate can all be derived from corn. In the Cefdinir for Oral Suspension, sucrose (which I have already mentioned I am allergic to), sodium benzoate, xatham gum, citric acid (anhydrous), sodium citrate(dihydrate), strawberry flavour, fresh cream flavour, and magnesium stearate can all be derived from corn. Why would the pharmacist allow either of these to be given to a person with a corn allergy? I choice the lesser of evils and when with the tablet. My throat swells every time I take it, but since I am so sick, I am just dealing with especially after spending so much money to have an antibiotic. And I wish this was the only issue. I was told they could fill the ibuprophen. When the medicine was ready to pick up, they could not confirm that the capsules were corn free. So I could just make a “bc powder” out of these. I did so, and it burned my throat so badly. I called to complain two days later, and was told “oh we found out those are corn free so you can take them normally”. Shouldn’t the pharmacy have followed up with me without me having to call back again after the issues I have had. But it gets better, cough syrup. After determining the pharmacy would be unable to fill as the doctor prescribed, my doctor agreed that M-End DMX would work but should still be compounded with no corn or corn by-products. I paid over $50 for a huge bottle. My boyfriend picked up my medicine because I didn’t need to be out. Inactive ingredients: Bitter Mask, Citric Acid, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Purified Water, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Saccharin, Sorbitol, Sucralose, Tutti Frutti Flavor. All of the inactive ingredients other than water are or can be derived from corn. Then they forgot I was allergic to red dye and fill the prednisone in pink & yellow capsule. I was told it shouldn't be a big deal just to dump the capsules to take the powder.
