We should be able to get dye free medicine
My doctor's office was very helpful about our medicine needing to be dye-free. I called and explained that the prescription we had filled contained red #40. I explained that my son is highly reactive to dyes and that he can't take a medicaiton that contains them. The nurse indicated that they routinely work with a special compounder who could ship the medicine from Cleavland. I made sure to specify that it needs to be free of all artificial dyes so that they wouldn't avoid the red #40 only to put in some yellow or blue dye instead. Hopefully it will all work out.
