    I just looked that up this

    I'm allergic to sulfa drugs. Will I have a bad reaction to MSM?

    No. Sulfa drugs are sulfites. MSM is a sulfur compound, but is not a sulfite.

    One other site though said to take precaution if allergic to sulfa medicines. Maybe there's a link to sulfite allergy and sulfur deficiency....

      There's a big difference between sulfur and the sulfonomides (sulfa) that is the antibiotic. I am allergic to sulfonomides, but not to sulfur.

      Stay safe

        Have added Celebrex to my meds. I remember a uro giving me this a few years ago. I was taking Celebrex last year for a back problem and didn't have any IC symtoms. This may have a benefit while I am in a flare. I will let you know how I feel in a few days.
