Myth Busted: Ipratropium Bromide and Peanut Allergies

When a CE lesson user asked me to explain that ipratropium bromide is contraindicated to patients with peanut allergies I searched for the facts. After my search concluded with unsatisfactory results I turned to pharmacist and EMS supporter Mark Albert.

Read his post Ipratropium – Soybean and Nuts Allergy: Myth Dispelled

I am looking forward to more from Mark, have added his blog feed to my RSS reader, and encourage you to do the same.
