Allegra with benadryl

Common Questions and Answers about Allegra with benadryl

allegra

Can someone please share with me, which benadryl is used for the riba rash/itch while on tx. In Denmark we have two kinds. The one taken 1 x per day and it has a 24 hr effect.
My dr said no Zyrtec but yes to Benadryl, Claritan, Allegra.
I was told that benadryl and tylenol were the only two safe meds pregnant women should take...good luck!
In the first place Zyrtec tends to make you drowsy and Allegra tends to perk you up. It would be pretty weird to take them together. I take Zyrtec daily and when my allergies act up I take a single dose of Benadryl which is short-acting. that works well for me.
I have bad pollen allergies and take several 24 hour Zyrtec a day (Claritin and Allegra did nothing). In the spring I get very itchy with the pollen allergy. I layer on a few Benadryl when it gets unbearable. I hope that helps you and gives you some actions to take so that you can start controlling your reactions better. Oh, I am also allergic to ibuprophen. You should avoid ALL NSAIDs - aspirin, naproxen, celebrex, ibuprophen... NSAID allergies tend to cross react with each other.
Sneezing and watery eyes have been my most common symptoms, particularly where cats, mold, mildew and dust are concerned. However, I found myself with EXTREMELY itchy eyes this time, resulting in them swelling almost completely shut. I took 50mg of Benadryl, which knocked me out for the duration of the night. I assumed the swelling would have abated by morning, if not completely, at least a little. No such luck.
My doctor told me not to take Zyrtec!!! (but said that Benadryl is ok, if necessary) Benadryl just makes me REALLY tired...and my DH doesn't think that it is a good idea for me to take too much of any medication (he also doesnt have allergies and doesn't TRULY understand my suffering!) This is our first child and he is very/overly protective... The good thing is : I showed him all your posts, and I think he realizes that many people take allergy medicines while pregnant!
Oops sorry I wrote Teleprevir in the second one rather then Boceprevir. Still, I am a little concerned that your doctor is not familiar with the rash being a side effect. It is just difficult to miss when you read about the side effects of the medication. On the other hand I am not trying to freak you out since a lot of people on here have had to educate their doctors and self-treat given the increase of people treating the virus.
Also, at times my back feels like I have sunburn. It all itches horribly usually only when rubbed by clothing. The rash is red blotches with some areas having raised bumps that when broken puss the clear liquid I get from my eczema. In recent years, I've become allergic to dust, mold and dust mites and my eczema has spread to my eyes, penis, inner thighs and feet, I used to only break out on my hands.
TO ALL PET OWNERS WITH A DOG WITH CUSHINGS DISEASE. I HAVE A BRINDLE PIT BULL TERRIER, 11 YEARS OLD. HER NAME IS TAZ. SHE'S HAD CUSHINGS FOR 3 TO 4 YEARS. SHE STARTED DRINKING WATER EXCESSIVLY AND COULDN'T HELP BUT URINATE ALL OVER THE HOUSE. HER HUNGER WAS LIKE SHE COULDN'T GET ENOUGH FOOD. THEN THE PANTING STARTED ALL THE TIME. I'D WAKE UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND SHE WOULD BE WIDE AWAKE CRYING BESIDE HER WATER BOWL. IT WAS SO SAD. I COULD SEE WAS SUFFERING.
At this point, it is happening once to twice a month including swollen lips and tounge. I have tried allegra, zyrtec, claritin and benadryl. It is now lasting 2 to 3 days. Does anyone know anything about something like this? My glands are not swollen. Thanks.
Is anybody experiencing Pressure Urticaria associated with Shortness of breath on exertion and hives? I feel like I can't breathe when my hives appear on my chest. I am on Allegra, Pepcid, Claritin, Benadryl (quick relief drug), prednisone 40 mg for 3 weeks so far, singulair, albuterol nebulizer, flovent...no history of asthma. This CU stared after my anaphylactic reaction from walnuts in October 3rd...prior history-Perfect Health!!!! And Healthy!!! And an Athelete!!!
I was diagnosed with hypothyroid about 10 years ago. At the time of diagnosis, I had a red rash all over my legs and torso. In time that went away, but over the course of years I've developed a skin condition similar to hives. They appear nearly anywhere, but rarely on my face or scalp. Have any of you ever experienced anything like this? Do you think it is associated with my thyroid? Over the years I've changed laundry detergents, soaps, etc...
For the past 2 months, I've had a severe flare up which has been treated with a 6-day Prednisone patch, Allegra, and now 30 mg of Doxepin daily with no relief. In addition, I'm taking OTC Bendryl (200 mg) daily. With previous rare flare-ups, the Prednisone patch worked to clear up the hives and bring me back to 'normal'. The hives currently are all over my body, exaggerated by stress, with pain at times from my hands / feet swelling as well as the hives themselves.
I am seeing the Allergist next week as I have been diagnosed with Allergic Rhinitis. I am using Rhinocort nasal spray and still taking the Allegra...I was diagnosed with ETD in my left ear and in November 2007 I was sick for three weeks, got better and then got sick again after Christmas...could this all be massive inflammation and have to resolve with time...I also noticed that when I was on Clindamycin...
i was with a pregnant woman who had hives on her arms....i ate some sardines and than i too had them....it has been about 3 or 4 months and i still have them. i've used allegra...zyrtec...benadryl...calamine lotion...aveeno natural lotion...dove soap...none of which did any justice...
I am just really diving in and hoping that it will help - particularly with the grass. We do Zyrtec every night (can't live without it!), and Benadryl for hives - but you can't give both together - so if she gets the Benadryl at night, we do the Zyrtec the next day. Lots of creams, lotions, and skin maintenance stuff, too - but her allergies are the #1 trigger (sweating is #2!). good luck - I will try to remember to re-post and let you know how allergy shots pan out.
I have been diagnosed with autoimmune urticaria. The throat swelling is the most concerning. I'm taking Allegra, Ranitinidine, Zyrtec and Bendryl (as needed). To the person who commented on eating a mango and having a reaction, mine has clearly been driven by things I put on or in my body. This includes makeup, lotions, shampoos and toothpase.
I use Benadryl (non drowsy) almost every day but when my allergies are out of control I use Zyrtec. If I have congestion, I use Sudaffed.
My midwife said to watch out for meds with a d in the name (ie allegra d, claritan d, etc) but that most without the d are okay to use on occasion.
The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after. I notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc. All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good.
I tried not to take Allegra for a few days while switching to Benadryl before bed and it seemed to have subsided the swelling around my eyes until 2 days later, so now I'm back on Allegra. I feel like I’m losing control of something health related which is weighing on my mind. I take care of myself with exercise multiple times a week while trying to eat a protein enriched diet while keeping carbs & fats to a minimum, therefore I don’t think it is food related.
A lot of OTC allergy meds are okay, but you should definitely double-check with your doc. I take Benadryl at night, Allegra during the day, and allergy eyedrops...walking around with red eyes these days, my allergies have definitely kicked in.
I take benadryl and run a spoon under really hot water and press the back to your.bite... It helps kill the itch and.break up the allergy going on under your skin making it easier for your body to.fight. If you are anti taking pills benadryl also makes a cream!
The itching can be controlled with antihistamines like Claritin, Allegra, benadryl, atarax. If you are breast feeding, you need to see which ones are ok to take. You can also try over the counter lotions like Allegra cream or Benadryl cream. I currently take 3-4 antihistamines and prednisone.
You are supposed to stay away with any type of "D" medicine, but there are still prescription meds that you can have. I was told that you CANNOT have Allegra, Allegra D, or Claritin D ("D" class meds), but you can have Zyrtec. I have been taking Zyrtec daily (I am 24 weeks pregnant). Good luck ... the allergy season is bad enough without being limited to the remedies you can seek!
The only kinds of antihistamines that work for me are the ones that have a sedating effect, like Benadryl. You can actually ask your doctor for a prescription for Benadryl and buy it from the pharmacy. Your insurance still won't pay for it, but it's less expensive to buy it this way than it is over the counter.
As to moving forward, consider going back to the antihistamine (Allegra) with more hydration if the doctor allows. If not, I'd see a skin specialist (dermatologist) for proper diagnosis and treatment.
