Cetirizine for cats

Common Questions and Answers about Cetirizine for cats

zyrtec

I am a veterinary professor involved in animal specialty care. I have suffered from respiratory viral infections-exacerbated chronic cough for several years and have been diagnosed a couple of weeks ago with moderate-to-severe allergic asthma. From recent exacerbations, I suspect that cat allergens are an important source of flares that set off immediate and delayed asthmatic responses.
The Doctors found I am allergic to cats, dogs, trees, ragweed, things that i have been around for about, oh, all my life. my hive outbursts are so painful. I get hives in my scalp and on the bottom of my feet that swell up so horribly. Why can't anyone figure out these outbursts?
After being out of the house for days I come home and immediately begin to cough, then by evening I ache in my joints and have sinus drainage and a cough, this persists for days and when I go out of town it stops, it also stops if I go shopping for several hours or am away for severl hours. Could I be allergic to my home? Can I be tested?
The mainstay of treatment of hives is antihistamines which may be necessary for prolonged periods (in excess of 6 weeks). You can take antihistamines like Cetirizine(Zyrtec) and Loratadine(Claritin) may be needed to get symptom relief. Sedating antihistamines such as Chlorphenamine(Benadryl) is used at night to get urticaria control. Short courses of oral cortisone or steroids are taken for short periods (one to three days) to settle more severe symptoms.
I have been very vigilant about treating all my cats and keeping my house cleaned. I have not seen once trace of a flea on my cats or in my house. The bites weren't around my ankles either. Then, I did some research and thought maybe it was bed bugs. I had two different pest control companies come out and no signs of bed bugs... I have recently noticed the blotches/welts during the day... I went to my regular doctor two weeks ago and he thought it was a mild rash pertaining to dry skin.
I was initially prescribed Symbicort and Ventolin - also Singulair and Cetirizine - but have since been put on Dulera instead of the Symbicort. I also have been prescribed the use of a Nebulizer 4 x's daily. I had a CT scan last week with contrast and I was one of the lucky few that had an anaphalactoid reaction. Everyone made quite a fuss and I was grateful that I was already in the hospital when my throat started to swell.
hi.....the fish oil capsules are very good for skin issues for cats and I hope that will help your kitty. I will caution tho, that anything with TEA TREE OIL is very toxic to cats...besides continued washing will only dry out his coat/skin and contribute to more itching related dryness.. have you tried changing to a more natural type of litter such as yesterdays news or one of the walnut shelled kinds rather than clay?
Those 30 day topical flea meds are pretty harsh, especially for cats. And they don't prevent fleas, they only kill fleas after they have bitten, so if she is allergic to fleas, they don't help in that regard at all. I would recommend a different solution. You might try capstar, which is an oral flea medication, as well as trying to keep her in a flea free environment. If you have fleas in your home, you may need to use a flea bomb to get rid of them.
The Flip-Turn Sinus Flush (by friggy) removes infected mucus from every part of your sinuses, which Mayo Clinic research shows is the cure for sinusitis, rather than treating sinus tissue with antibiotics. Regular saline irrigation does not work in the upper sinuses, because of gravity, but the Sinus Flush defeats gravity. It works incredibly well with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush.
I was told that it's new here but they've been using it in Europe for some time. I've been taking it for four days now. It hasn't stopped the hives completely but I'm giving it some time and praying every time I put one in my mouth. I should mention that those people who have been suffering with hives for months test positive for antibodies against their mast cells (mast cells release histamine).
suggestions, have you been checked for celiacs? By the way she is on zyrtec for hers.
he can tell 2 days away if the weather is going to dramatically change - and here in texas that happens a lot. trust me, its awful for him. once the weather settles down, he's back to normal. only the barometric change does anything to him. you're not alone in this, and nothing - not any medication on the market, rx or otherwise, puts a dent in his reaction.
Its been like this for a little more than a month. A few years back, it was like this for nearly 2 years but went away for about 5 months the later part of 2007. Both reactions were right after I had sexual relations with a partner. The coincidence led me to believe std related but negative tests say otherwise. I myself feel lost and not sure what to do because from what ive been reading, it seems like the creams/moisturizers and medications do not really help so much.
This is the use of Plaquenil, a drug originally used for malaria. In a recent trial 83% improved or cleared completely when used for three months or more. ref:http://www.aocd.org/skin/dermatologic_diseases/urticaria.html Hope you are better informed about your condition and find it useful.
Any other info or suggestions are welcomed, I am not usually one to worry about such things, but for whatever reason this has me having some anxiety waiting for the biopsy.
hei scud422, i went thru the same problem that you have...thanx to God that it was only for one night.what you have is muscle spam for real,i visited an emergenc doc.
I had read about the possibility of it being bed bugs (from reading sites like this online) so I tore my bedroom apart looking for signs of an infestation, and saw NOTHING. My mattress is brand new, the apartment I live in is also pretty close to brand new. Never the less, not a thing was found, searched mattress, box spring, walls near bed, everything. Ruled out bed bugs. The only other thing I've seen it could be is Restless Leg Syndrome.
The Institute called me last week to see if I wanted to be in this new study for Sofosbuvir GS 5885. I have not been able to get much info on the net except from the Drug Co. They have one slot open and I need to be there tomorrow for my bloodwork and EKG. Is there anyone on Med Help that is in this trial or anyone with any info that would help me make this decision. I was so dis-hearted when I could not stay in the Teleprevir study.
I do have sinus problems and always have, but I have never really taken anything for it other than something over the counter during a cold. I have regular stuffiness and pretty much always have. I just have learned to deal with it. It would be nice to know were that smoke smell comes from. No one else smells it when I say I do. I have never smoked nor have I lived in a home were anyone smokes either.
I found a person on the MSN body odor support forum who had a bad odor for a long time and then the odor went away after being treated for H. Pylori, but then the coughing and sneezing started after that. Interesting. Another person on the MSN board said he was also treated for H. Pylori and then the coughing/sneezing started! Question: Do any of you burp a lot? Here is a thread that should be read: http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=561071#i Read the replies to that link also.
