Ketotifen is a good systemic mast cell stabilizer and antihistamine that in oral form apparently works well for food allergies. I have many, many food allergies, not the kind that show up on skin or blood tests. And too many foods are off limits for me now. So I'm looking at medications that might enable me to eat foods I couldn't eat otherwise.
I know that cromolyn helps to reduce the food reaction. But I heard that ketotifen is better.
But in oral form, ketotifen isn't available in the USA, except from some compounding pharmacies. To get it from a compounding pharmacy, I probably need a doctor's prescription.
You can buy ketotifen online, but I've only see the tablets, which have ingredients like corn starch and lactose that I'm allergic to.
So are there doctors in the USA who will prescribe it? Or would I have to see a doctor in Canada?
