Patient :I recently saw a new doctor and he referred me to a therapist/psychiatrist to possibly be put on ADD medication. Before I go in I wanted a second opinion. My allergy symptoms to ibuprofen are fairly severe and I don't want to chance having a reaction with a new drug. If I am prescribed Adderall or Ritalin, and am allergic to aspirin/ibuprofen, could I potentially have an allergic reaction to the ADD medication?
