Allegra and fatigue

Common Questions and Answers about Allegra and fatigue

allegra

Is it safe to take both Allegra-D and Zyrtec. In short, I suffer from allergies. I find that I feel best when I take a single pill of Allegra-D in the morning and a single pill of Zyrtec at night. In part, I have been doing this because I haven't had to go to the doctor (or Canada) to get more Allegra D so I can take it twice a day. I was wondering what the possible side-effects, besides fatigue, are of the regimen I'm taking? I've felt much better since beginning it.
Today is the first time that I felt a metal taste in my mouth. I have atopic dermatitis and take allegra, but otherwise I think I am very healthy. I have been to the doctors, but seem to ignore me.
I'm a 52 year old maile who is athletic and in good shape. 3 years ago, I went through a period of approximately 2-3 weeks in which I felt fatigued, throat wasn't sore, but felt a little irritated, and had some sinus pressure. I had assumed it was some type of allergy, which I had never had in my life. Things got back to normal and I didn't think any more of it. Yesterday, I started feeling the same way.
Does anyone else suffer from extreme fatigue, heavy limbs and aches when the spring pollen is about? I have the usual eye and throat issues but can cope with that but the tiredness really effects my ability to function. I don't know what to do about it and get to help from my GP. Any tips to cope greatly appreciated.
I switch back and forth between Claritin (24Hr) and Allegra-D (12Hr). The Claritin makes me less grogy, the Allegra makes my already low BP and temp drop even more. I can't really tell which works better, and neither seem to work as well as sleeping in a hot car. The only other prescription I'm on is Depoprovera and otherwise I take ibuprofen and tylenol as needed.
Like many of you, I've been frustrated and confused by a combination of symptoms including fatigue, muscle and joint pain, severe headaches and neck pain, and bloating. I've had bouts of depression and anxiety but after extensively pursuing this angle I've concluded that they are the result of having so much chronic pain and discomfort and not the cause.... I've followed rigid food elimination diets in the past but that was before my pain and fatigue kicked in a few years ago.
I learned what to eat, and why I should eat. And when to stop. The last item was the hardest thing I've ever had to learn. None of us will ever be sucessful unless and until we learn that. No matter what you do or what medicines you take. We all have to eat. I do know the desperation to lose weight. That I know very well. I tried many, many of those fad diets, but never had the guts to try the HCG or any other of the chemicals out there.
During these moments, I feel extremely weak and heavy and must lay down and rest. My eyes feel tired and my body just feels like it’s shutting down, even in the middle of the morning or afternoon. It comes randomly and has been getting worse this week, scaring me very much. In addition, I have recently been suffering from acid reflux and gastric problems, and have been treated for possible parasites with Albendazole a few weeks ago, which had no effect.
I have been dizzy now for almost 2 months, and my doctor has given me nasonex and allegra. I haven't started the allegra yet, but my symptoms are getting worse. The dizzyness is almost all of the time, and especially bad if I move to quick and from sitting to standing. Headaches are getting worse, hard to get rid of. I have had blood work and an exam, and all the Dr. noticed was that my nasal passages were extremely dry. Everything else has checked out great.
I developed an anxiety disorder, depression, and an immense fatigue. I went on all appropriate medications, only to learn a few months later that it was all being caused by minor sleep apnea - they said my tonsils were swollen, but said nothing else about the actual cause of the apnea. However, some symptoms have gone ignored, and the sleep apnea is not improving with treatment, so I decided to investigate them.
I had a root canal performed on my bottom molar in Jan. 2007 and since have had pressure on my head mostly when lying down, high blood pressure (never had before), and an overall feeling of fatigue - taking a few naps during the day which I never did before!
you will experience some rebound pain when you come off the pain meds this is normal i have an an auto immune disorder as a result of liver disease, the pain is somwhat comparable to fibro.
I am a 24 yr old female with a history of Atypical migraines that started off with aura and classic symptoms of light and sound sensitivity, nausea, irritability and has progressed over the last 3 years to mood changes - euphoria, depression and about 6 episodes of seizures. Since the seizures I've been left with muscle twitches in my eyelid, but mostly in my legs, gluteals included, sometimes actual muscle jerks than can move the limb. I am also in my 3rd bout of chronic urticaria.
Currently I have been taking zyzal,ranitidine and predisone in the morning and then take predisone, raitidine, singular,hydroxyzine and allegra in the evening. I am growing more and more concerned. Is this ever going to pass? I reviewed a reply asking if I had taken asprin or anything (feledene) within a few days prior to having the flu shot. I'm not sure,but could be a possibility. What are your thoughts? Is there a resolve to all this?
I also experienced tingling at large joints (wrists, knees, ankles and along spine), waves of faintness, waves of pressure in my wrists/hands and head/neck, achiness, and mild nausea. My PCP dx'd bursitis and ran blood tests which revealed a sed rate of 29, CRP of 11.4 (lab limits 0.0 - 3.0) , neg. RA factor, neg. ANA.
then a Z-pack, then amitex and pseudophed, then tylenol and tesselon perles, then allegra, now thinking it is allergies. Last year, I coughed in a similar fashion for about 2 1/2 months. I had developed flank pain and was seriously irritated by the everday fatigue. After 2 months of the same providers telling me I had post nasal drip, I finally decided to go to the hospital. It turned out that I had bronchitis.
They took away migraines, dizziness and light sensitivity however the fatigue, weakness and other symptoms worsened...not sure if due to reaction to medication used for injections. My PCP is a DO (doctor of osteopath)....he believes Chiari is the problem from 1st visit and is my big help in getting me into the well known NS. Interestingly enough when I called to make an appt. with the cardiologist and asked to be switched to someone that specializes in POTS....
Also around this time I visited my family physician hoping he would have some answerers for me. I went in and complained about my muscles and told him that they hurt and that it almost feels as if they were lacking something. He sent me for blood work (not sure what exactly he had tested, but he stated that he tested everything that would have to do with muscles), and the blood work came back normal. So being more confused, I decided to wait it out alittle longer.
hi, since a month ago I got this green and yellow mucus, my chest felt congested, two weeks after i went to the doctor and he told me that I have a respiratory infection and send me azithromycin 500mg for five days once a day and allegra D12hr.
I saw an allergist a week ago and she put me on allegra in the day time and zyrtec at night, and I'm also on a nose spray called Veramyst. The hives have never gone away completely save for the three days I was on a steroid. Today they are as worse as ever. I just want them to go away forever. And I don't know how to make that happen....
I'm just wondering how many of us are agoraphobic and to what extent. I know that I am and fight it all the time but make sure that I do leave my home most days. I have a very dear friend who hasn't left her home in almost 7 years. She has had all kinds of therapy and has tried SSRIs and other meds but is now VERY meds phobic and even with the CBT she finally gave up and just stays home. I'm wondering if there are others on this forum who are like her or are the majority like me.
I've been taking 500mg metformin myself and I have not experienced any weight loss. I am actually taking it for diabetes treatment. But it has not helped with my weight loss.
The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and itching. Topical and oral steroids are needed. Water, sweat, and soap may cause irritation and should be avoided in the disease. Topical zinc oxide and calamine lotion are useful for pruritus. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist.
In May I began to have dizzy spells which coincided with a sore throat and earache, which cleared up on their own. However, dizziness and fatigue continued for several weeks. The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue.
I'm on 40,000 Procrit weekly, 50mg Trazadone daily, prilosec, advair, flonase and allegra for sinus and now synthroid for the thyroid fiasco. Yikes! Before all this I wouldn't take as much as an aspirin unless I thought I heard the pearly gates being opened! Did I leave anything out? Cuteus - I'm thinking they will do a PCR 30 days after the end of tx - I think that's the most common time for relapse. I'm sure one will be done within 3 months of stopping.
I have bad allergies so I take Allegra and over the past 5 years I have had several sinus infections and I have been on several different allergy meds and antibiotics. I started acupuncture this year and no sinus infection so far and I have cut all meds but Allegra out and found that even when I was not taking anything even Allegra that I was still so very tired and sleepy most every day which is why they did the EBV test and several other tests.
It can cause swelling of the neck along w/ neck pain like a stiff neck,memory loss,chronic fatigue, weight loss and gain,urinating problems even constipation.It is no joke! And is a very serious matter if left untreated.Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is a more serious one.But respectfully all thyroid problems are serious ones.I am now going back to the Endocinologist that I saw in 1995 because he saved me the first time and refused to dimiss anything!
I have flu-like symptoms over half the time including chills, muscle pain, sinus and head pain, lymph nodes are large in my neck and fatigue. I am off the warfarin. COULD the PE and symptoms been caused by allergies? ( to treat this I am taking allegra d, singulair, rhinocort and now Mucilex.
He cleaned my ears, looked in them, looked in nose and gave me flutiscone (sp?), Tod me to take 1 Mucinex-D in morning and Allegra Generic at night. Also gave me a steroid shot. That was 2 weeks ago. Still no change. I do have an itch on my chest and torso but no rash. So, I am going to get back with ENT now that there is really no change. I sit here with pressure in my face and feeling "off". Just don't know what it could be. Has anyone found the answer?
In March 2012 I was beginning to experience fatigue and nasal congestion. My pcp pu me on Zyrtec which ended up exacerbating my fatigue, so I discontinued using it. My blood tests also showed a positive ANA which did not alarm me. After all, I had been diagnose with Graves. May 2012, I had made an appointment to see a new endocrinologist, as my old one didn't even test FT3 which I had read was important.
