OTC and Prescription Drugs Containing Allergens 

WATCHOUT FOR INACTIVE INGREDIENTS. Remember to ask the pharmacist to provide you with the inactive ingredients. These will be listed following the active ingredients. Or call the drug manufacturer and find out what is listed in the INACTIVE INGREDIENTS. Most manufacuters will not tell you that e.g. milk may be in their flavorings.
For a milk allergy stay away from any drug containing lactose , lactose monohydrate, and "flavorings".
A lot of tablet forms and suspensions do contain milk protein and other allergens.
The following is a short list of drug products containing allergens.  This is NOT a complete list. Drug manufacturers are NOT required by law to list the top eight allergens in their ingredients lists.  Food allergens will be "HIDDEN" in the inactive ingredients list as : "flavorings, lactose, lactose monohydrate, and other names."
