Anaphylaxis comes on very suddenly and death may be the consequence if it is not recognized or treated promptly. The most effective medication to treat it is epinephrine and not , as often erroneously believed, antihistamine. People with this problem should wear a MediAlert ID to signal this condition to emergency medical personnel since just minutes of delay may mean the difference of life or death.
