Why take allegra d on an empty stomach

Common Questions and Answers about Why take allegra d on an empty stomach


What I do know is L-Glutamine 2 or 3 x a day on an empty stomach does have a strong healing quality about it. Again these are my suggestions from what I am familiar with and I do believe there could very well be additional problems here, but this is what I know.
The only other things I have going on that MAY be related, is an upper back pain/numbness... unknown cause. Been going on for years though. No diagnosis. So basically I'm out of ideas, and about to go insane. It's terrible at night not being able to sleep because of that feeling, and not being able to sleep with my girlfriend because I keep her awake with my constant moving around and itching...
Having stopped Allegra-D, and begun taking Prevacid on an intermittent basis, the GERD has all but gone away, and the motility has improved. Endoscopy in 2 days - we'll see.
If you have one of the other forms of sinusitis, your doctor can take an x-ray of your head, and the infection may show up as an opaque area on the x-ray. Of course, you don’t really want to get an x-ray of your head unless you really have to, so it’s better to get a CAT scan of your sinuses, which is the more accurate way to diagnose the specific form of sinusitis that you are suffering from. Sometimes, however, you can have a sinus infection that won’t show up on a CAT scan of your sinuses.
I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
I'm off it now, but I still have a finicky stomach (never did before, but it apparently hasn't fully recovered.) Acetaminophen is fine to take with an upset stomach, but nothing else is. I keep a bottle of Prilosec handy just in case things get wierd again, but I'll tell you, that stuff is too rich for my new health insurance and if ever I have to have it again it'll cost me another $50. When you're in serious pain though, you'll pay that and more.
She put me on a antibiotic for 2 weeks and allegra-D. I never had a sinus infection until I went on the lexapro. I think there is a connection with all of this. Sinusitis is listed as one of the possible side effects of lexapro. All that I want is for these crickets to stop churping in my ears. Oh-I also started taking the vitamin supplement lipoflavinoid. The ENT Dr. gave me some samples, says it might help with the tinnitis, but she says she doesnt have much faith that it works.
The symptoms are back now and after doing some research, I am taking allergy medications (last year the allergy specialist told me I was allergic to practically everything and put me on several medications....Allegra in the AM, Singulair at night, Advair and Flonase as needed), the blood pressure medication, OTC medication for acid reflux (read that this might could cause it though I only have it maybe once a month), and taking the Ambien again at night.
Debbie: thank you so much for all of your very helpful info!! I am now strongly considering going back and asking the Dr. to perscribe Elavil for me. If it works, than it must be shingles, right? (because I to have been convinced that it's somethaing gastrointestinal but they find nothing.) Would you mind answering a few more questions about the Elavil? -- Do you take the it as needed or on a regular daily basis? -- Again: how long before you experienced some releif from taking the Elavil?
My ear/nose/throat, of course, laughs at this, convinced its my allergies, of which I have an allergy test appointment on Jan 10. All he has told me is to take some Claritin-D (which helped for a few days, but not anymore), cover my bed with hypoallergenic ****, and to wait and find out about my allergies, and then get the allergy shots. I also saw an acupuncturist who worked some magic for about 48 hours as well, but that was all.
I get them on my palms, tops and bottoms of my feet, stomach, face, neck, arms, legs, and even on my scalp. The strangest thing is that I am trying to get pregnant (with little success) so I started clomid and gonal f. I tell you that I didn't have a single hive the entire time I was on them (14 days). It was wonderful. Can't tell me that these things are "stress" when I didn't get them during one of the most stressful times I've had.
I had stones, which showed up on an ultrasound by a surgeon in his office. But as another person said, you could have a nonfunctioning gallbladder without stones, and to diagnose that you'd need a HIDA scan. But abdominal pain is notoriously difficult to diagnose, as many here on these boards are experiencing! I'm doing better after getting my gallbladder out, but still having days with discomfort and lack of appetite and difficulty putting weight on.
I believe your symptoms could be due to an intolerance or allergy to wheat products; maybe other foods as well and that is why my physician put me on the diet I suggested earlier. Here's a helpful link: http://allergies.about.com/cs/gluten/f/blniaidceliac2.
Take one dose per day, first thing in the morning on an empty stomach along with a B6. Try 1500mg and see how you feel. You can take up to 4000mgs but many find it works best at a more moderate dose. It will give you back your mental and physical energy. Do some aerobic exercise, too. Anything that gets your heart and breathing rate up like fast walking, jogging, bicycling, stairmaster, etc. I'd also suggest taking a mega-mineral supplement with lots of magnesium, zinc and phosphorous.
So, long story short, I did not take the Singular. I know have an appointment with the head ENT doctor at the hospital in my area, next week. I'll put up another post after I see him. Thanks for all your advice and concerns.
I plan to also do some experiments with antihistimines (I've even read about Pepcid working), running in hot vs cold weather, and running on an empty stomach - to help determine triggers. Anyhow, I wanted to share my story for those with similar running-related itching, and also share the best links I found. For anyone with exercise-related hives, it seems important for you to distinguish between Cholinergic Urticaria and Exercise-Induced Anaphylaxis (EIA).
She had a UTI and a upper respitory infection this past week and she is on an antibiotic so I thought this would take care of the problem but 5 days on the med. she is still doing this. Should I have the doctor do further tests on her?? I'm more concerned now because she hasnt been wanting to eat. She never was breast feed and I did take fertility to finally conceive her. I guess Im just tring to say Im just as concerned as this other mom. Please I f you find help let me know.
It does have the side effect of making you tired at first and it takes a month or so to really have an effect. But I am now 36, still take 1 Hydroxyzine 25mg a night and I have not had much of an itch for about 15 years. I can tell that I still have the condition and I do itch a bit when the weather seasonally changes (cold to hot, hot to cold) but I often forget that I have the itch at all, for months on end.
nothing but PACs, i had a breathing test and all normal so why do i still feel the need to contstantly take a deep breath or yawn to get it. is this happening cuz i am thinking about it too much?? how many deep breaths a day is normal... if anyone has any advise please let me know and good luck volsy i hope we can get an answer...
Yes HOLY, as we reached the limit on the other thread that's why I started this one, so we can continue our very supportive forum. Thanks guys, and keep posting. Hopefully some day we will find help. Thanks.
It doesn't matter if my stomach is empty or I have eaten. Symptoms are the same and I am getting very little if any relief from the meds. Is there anything that can help or am I in trouble? I am very worried. I don't smoke, drink alcohol or eat spicy foods and always maintained a very healthy life style. I am mainly a vegan and exercise every day. I would so appreciate any advice. Thank you!
And the first time I consumed any in eight years, it was an accident, had half of a mint Brussells cookie, and a stomach ache for a good twenty minutes. Anyone else here that *look* when you tell others you and mint don't get along? Care to share your symptoms? Your coping/mint alternatives?
However a person with severe uncontrolled acidity or when such a person is hungry or his stomach is empty except for the acid, he may feel dizzy. Also presence of an ulcer in the stomach or weak esophageal sphincter can complicate matter. I would recommend you to see a gastroenterologist (a specialist who looks after the diseases of our digestive system). The second possibility is that you have a TMJ disorder that precipitates dizziness once you start chewing. This is most likely cause.
Once you get an infection, all the bacteria,viruses,allergens,and toxins take on a life of their own. The cure is to get rid of the pustulence, with surgery--no way!--or advanced saline sinus flush. I got a Snot Demon for 7 yrs, teaching grade school/germ factory. A cold in the fall, then sinusitis, lost smell then taste, Cipro, hawk spit cough, sore throat, partial recovery in summer. Then I heard about a saline flush, like the one mentioned above.
It's clear the problem is there's no bloodflow, but the question is why. I have noticed there seems to be two thing going on, not only does the internal penis shrink but the skin sometimes tightens up and I also get a sort of restriction just below the gland where it becomes even thinner. If it is in that state and I somehow manage to get an erection the tight skin remains squeezing the shaft at that point until I get a full erection and it disappears. Looks very odd.
I noticed many people talking about taking Metformin BEFORE they eat to suppress appetite and then report stomach issues like vomiting. Metformin is very hard on your empty stomach and must be taken WITH food for that very reason. I wonder if eating something light and low calorie like carrots or something, and then taking the metformin, well before meals, would solve that problem?
If I am eating something (especially salty foods) and swallow, if a grain of food gets on the area I start to cough. If I lay on my right side and have sinus drainage, I cough. I have an appointment with another ENT tomorrow and plan on crying, kicking and screaming to get something done because at this point everyone wants me to just keep using Nasonex and Allegra D which only makes the cough drier rather than helping.
Hi, Please remember not to exercise on an empty stomach and make sure to maintain hydration. A multivitamin supplement should help.
On the bottles of Prevacid from the pharmacy it doesn’t tell you to take it on an empty stomach to give it a chance to shut off the pumps. So for the last two weeks I’ve been taking it 30 to 60min before a meal. And guess what…..In the last two weeks I’ve hardly had any attacks, only minor ones and none while I’m sleeping. So this is something you may want to try if you take Prevacid or Prilosec since it’s not on the instructions (at least not with the national chain pharmacy I go to).
