I am allergic to the yellow coloring in OTC medications. Even one tablet gives me hives and feelings of suffocation and dread. I wish the FDA could at LEAST place a warning on the label that the artificial coloring MAY lead to anaphylactic-like reactions. OR, say "This product contains an artificial coloring agent".
