Singulair antihistamine

Common Questions and Answers about Singulair antihistamine


Singulair does not, however, because it lack antihistamine. But my allergist want me on an antihistamine. Any thoughts on this?
He suggested Singulair which sounds great but I am worried because it has lactose in. So far I have taken it for 2 weeks the pain has stopped but the post nasal drip and cough continue. I also have developed sore dry lips. As Lactose and anything to do with milk products is some thing I usually avoid as it makes my symptoms worse, is it likely that is it causing a problem in the Singulair?
by mistate I took my allegra D this morning & my sons singulair 10 mg is that o.k.?
First, spend the money on CeraVe' Soap, it's at the drug store, for your hands and the shower... Also, a 24 hour antihistamine, Allegra is the best then Zyrtec then Clariton, take any of the 3 that you can tolerate. Your T cells are probably out of wack, your immune system... my story may help...
I just found out I'm pregnant and I don't have an appointmet with my doctor for two weeks. I had been taking singulair and zyrtec but I stopped until I can clear it with my doctor. Are these medicines safe and if not is there a safe one out there?
Various treatment options that are available include - special diets, steroids, mast cell inhibitors, antihistamines and leukotriene antagonists.

As to the claritin...that is an antihistamine. Singulair is one also; so you would be double treating one symptom. You should not take OTC meds when you have asthma without a doctor saying it is OK. Also a humidifier is contraindicated for people with asthma as it puts too much moisture in the air. Ideally you need 40-45% humidity, which is easily achieved with a central home heating and air system. Hope this helps.
4- cirrus for nose allergy also. 5- seretide 500 as a prevent remedy. 6- singulair for prevent also. 7- ventolin for attacks. now I have been very well, but still use numbers: 3,4,5,6. My asthma is controlled, but I always feel dizziness and want to sleep, especially when I walk in the neighborhood with my friends (for 30 minutes) and they always asking me: why do you walk slow? what is your problem? Really I'm very sad because I feel unnatural boy! can these drugs cause dizziness?
I was on symbicort but that made me to anxious. Singulair made me too anxious too. My daughter takes singulair every night and still has asthma and allergies flare ups. Veramyst nasal spray works best for me and nasonex is ok. I don't know which antihistamine medicine works best, I've tried them all too and they all have a side effect,.
First, spend the money on CeraVe' Soap, it's at the drug store, for your hands and the shower... Also, a 24 hour antihistamine, Allegra is the best then Zyrtec then Clariton, take any of the 3 that you can tolerate. Also, stay out of the heat, bright light bulbs, cover your self with a light shirt and pants.... a hat but you do not need to get heated like sweating.... Also, taking, comfortably cool showers, not hot or cold, will help but wash with the CeraVe to rehydrate your skin....
Sometimes my brain fog increases when I smell certain chemicals or when the air is humid. I have a prescription for singulair, claritin, saline rinse, and astelin. The claritiin seems to help a little with my brain fog, but I'm not sure if this is all in my mind. Does this sound like I have allergies? I can ask my PCP to see an ENT doctor. I've done a lot of research on the brain fog issue and want to try a gluten free diet. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I should proceed?
One year ago I had a serious attack of facial angioedema while vacationing in Ireland. A doctor there prescribed a antihistamine, and the attack subsided. Upon my return to the US, I had subsequent attacks. My allergist had me take every available test, but could not determine the cause. My first prescription was for daily doses of Zyrtec, but the attacks continued. My allergist that put me on daily doses of Singulair and Fenofexadrine.
On Saturday night I slept over at a friend's, she has a rabbit and I vaguely remember someone telling me I might be allergic. However, I've been taking my meds (Singulair and anti-histamines) and I didn't notice any symptoms or discomfort while I was there. That being said, I'm a 23 year old male with no real medical problems except for allergies/asthma and a back problem. Can anyone give me a clue here? Much appreciated!
This year it seems that my symtoms (sneezing, itchy throat and eyes) were persisting, so my doctor suggested to also take Singulair once daily, before bed, as it causes drowsiness and a heady feeling. However, after taking it, I can't get out of bed in the morning for an extra hour or two due to feelings of exhausten and dizzynes.
(I've had itchy burning hands and soles of my feet) First, I'd spend the money on CeraVe' Soap, it's at the drug store, for your hands and the shower... Also, a 24 hour antihistamine, Allegra is the best then Zyrtec then Clariton, take any of the 3 that you can tolerate.

What antihistamines have you used? It wasn't an antihistamine with a decongestant or Benadryl was it? Singulair can be used for Allergic Rhinitis like you have, however, this is usually prescribed for someone with Asthma issues secondary to Allergic Rhinitis. What nasal steroid are you using? Most of them can be used long term.
I went and seen a doctor about this and was told I have allergies, I was perscribed the generic for singulair for 10 days, and zyrtec for about 2 weeks to see if I got better. I opted to take the medicine at night (tonight)...and i can't sleep and my throat is so dry even after water. I really dis like medicine...I get anxious...what are some other options to feel better?... HELP!
A combination antihistamine/decongestant may help with all of these symptoms. When these symptoms come and go the medicine is taken only when the symptoms are present. When these symptoms are always present, the medicine is generally taken on a regular basis to keep the symptoms under control. Your sinuses can be very important to your sense of smell. When they are blocked, you may lose your sense of smell.
My sinuses are really irratated and I am positive it is not an infection. I take Astelin, Nasonex, Zyrtec, and Singulair everyday. I am allergic to pseudoephedrin, aspirin, amoxicillan and erythromycin. I now have build up in my chest and drainage affecting my throat and voice. Besides expertorant and nasal wash, which I have been doing are there any other suggestions.
I have had many blood tests only showing that I am borderline lupas, but not enough that i have to be on any medications or anything. Benadril has stopped working on me, I have tried every antihistamine out there. I am currently taking Ketotifen 1mg 4 times a day, plus four 10mg of Reactine, plus one 10mg Singulair and also four 25mg's of Hydroxyzine. And i still get severe hives everday. I have got allergy tests and it shows i am not allergic to anything.
The conclusion was rare PACS & PVCS sometime correlated with documentation Underlying rythm is sinus rythm I am 38 not history of heart issues or desease in my family. All started 1 month after taking Singulair & Azmanex - Not happening as much now but I am still worried - I did not have any SVT, VT or any other issues on my holter monitor. Should I be concerned and see a Cardiologist? Any reassurance would be greatly appriciated.
I had a hysterectomy five years ago, and it seems like a few months after the hysterectomy I started to have worse nasal congestion. I'm currently on q-var 80 for asthma, singulair, zyrtec, patanase, afrin, and a compounded decadron nasal spray, that I wind up gaining weight from, but when my congestion gets bad, it's the only way I can breathe. I had two turbinate reduction procedures done about a year and a half ago, and they didn't seem to help me much.
my dermatologist just has me on anti histamine drugs singulair etc.. these drugs only aid in the itching part of this. my joints constantly ache feet,knees etc.. some days its hard to walk and makes my job very difficult. i have heard of a medication called Kynatomine which is used for treatement of the liver, but heard good things about it in the treatment for hives. if anybody has any info on this or other treatments that worked for them it would be greatly appreciated. thank you.
I currently take Xyzal and Nasacort for allergies and medication for asthma (Singulair and Symbicort). I'm also taking allergy shots for cat dander and grass pollens. When I go running by wooded areas I get a horrible runny nose. My runny nose goes away about 10-15 minutes after I get inside from my run. I'm wondering if it could be from allergies or if it could be from something else. Thanks.
I have had allergy problems all my life and have tried almost every medication out there (OTC and prescription) until I was prescribed Singulair which worked. But, I lost my health coverage and stopped taking it for almost a year. I was recently put back on it (about a month ago) because I have been quiet sick for over 2 months now. The doctors said it was allergies, but I'm starting to wonder because the Singulair should be working in full by now, and I'm still sick.
Has he actually been tested for food allergies, so you know what to stay away from? Do you have him on any kind of antihistamine? Since his episodes come and go he should also be tested for weed, tree, and grass pollens. It wouldn't hurt to have him see a dermatologist to rule out any other underlying skin problem.
In addition to the oral antihistamine nasal sprays can be very helpful as well - steroid and/or antihistamine. Singulair may be quite beneficial for you as well. You do need to watch for signs of depression with Singulair though. If you don't know what your triggers are, it might help if you keep a diary for a few months to look for patterns. If you do this, include all foods and activities, where you go, and what chemicals you know you have been exposed to.
You may want to wear a dust mask while working with these materials or ask another family member to assume that task. Your message includes no mention of your taking an antihistamine. Granted, Singulair (a leukotriene receptor antagonist) is often effective in the treatment of both asthma and allergic, seasonal or perennial rhinitis, it is not an antihistamine and the addition of a drug in this category might provide relief of at least some of your symptoms.
Other antihistamines and decongestants can work including Allegra-D and Zyrtec. There are also over-the-counter antihistamine and decongestant combinations that help with sinus drainage. These medicines, however, would have no direct effect on COPD – the medicines you are already taking are treatment for COPD. Question: I have emphysema and struggle with shortness of breath this time of the year due to allergies.
neither has treatment with inhaled steroids (Flonase), inhaled antihistamine (Astelin), a leukotriene modulator (Singulair) and a proton inhibitor. A recent sinus scan showed a return of disease (ethmoids completely opaque), which I expect to worsen once the winter viruses set in. Surgery is no longer considered an option; if it gets to that point again, the only treatment will be a course of oral steroids, which provide only temporary relief.
