In this article we, will discuss Sulindac and Pre-existing Asthma. So, let’s get started.
Patients with asthma may have aspirin-sensitive asthma. The use of aspirin in patients with aspirin-sensitive asthma has been associated with severe bronchospasm which can be fatal. Since cross reactivity, including bronchospasm, between aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs has been reported in such aspirin-sensitive patients, Sulindac should not be administered to patients with
this form of aspirin sensitivity and should be used with caution in patients with preexisting asthma.
