We all take calculated risks daily and in most case it'sso common place we don't even consider it to be a risk. Adverse reactions to medications happen and so do adverse reaction to the environment but I would not chnage what normally do unless I expect that adverse reaction and even then it would depend on the situation. Case-in-point, one day you may not be allergic to a bee sting and then the next you are and you find out while you are driving day the round in your auto, gun in tow and you get a bee/wasp sting and you go into anaphalactic shock. Does this we should never drive? Never leave the house, nope we take calculated risk.
Now if you know you have an allergy you take precautions such as tell the doc me and cipro don't get along, or you carry a shot of adrenaline or bee sting kit. As humans our allergies can/do change periodically so you never know. So, it's my opinion if you normally carry and then you had this one adverse reaction I would let change my security posture I'd just recalculate my calculated risk taking. e.g. I wouldn't be "under the influence" of cipro again.

None of my doctors prohibit guns, and I carry most every time I visit. Course, one is an avid hunter and the other retired military.

I see it all the time in guys who have a big thick wallet but this was my first case due to a kel-tec. He did in fact have significant wear on his back pocket where the kel-tec usually sat. It was even starting to make a whole. I guess he carried all the time.
I sit here reading this and laughing, my doctor is from Columbia, I can just imagine his face when he see's me with my Walther. "Nice pistol, now take it off so I can examine you" :-D

I had a bad cold and congestion in my chest and went to the DR.
Talked to the doc took some chest x-rays then was told to drop em so I could get a shot in each hip. I paused told the nurse don't be alarmed
pulled my .45 out of my crossbreed with two fingers and set it on the exam table. The only comment made was, the nurse telling me her son would think I'm cool. I commented back to teach him the rules about gun safety if he's that interested in guns.
A good doctor will explain the possible side effects of any medication they prescribe. It is up to the patient and their common sense to wait until they are home, before taking a new medication while carrying.
A few months back I had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic, and the doc put me on Prednisone. No way I'd take that stuff an carry at the same time. Two days through the treatment, I couldn't handle the side effects, and quit taking it. I'd rather deal with some burning, itching rash than the awful effects of Prednisone.

My Primary Care Physician told me that a lot of his patients are carry when they are in his office, and he does not have a problem with it. He believes in the right to bear arms!
My Doctor owns more guns than I do. Also has a CHP.
I carry a bible and a gun. Your Point?
