Abstract

Background: Drug provocation tests (DPTs) need technical equipment, staff and time. There are very few allergy centres performing DPTs in Turkey. Therefore many patients are referred to these centres. One day triple-double antibiotic or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) oral DPT for determining safe alternatives is safe, cost-effective and time saving compared to conventional one day one drug oral DPT. Our aim was to investigate the safety of antibiotic-NSAID oral DPT performed on the same day to find safe alternatives in multidrug hypersensitive patients.
