Zantac and benadryl together

Common Questions and Answers about Zantac and benadryl together


I am currently on allegra and zantac when I first wake up, 2 doxepins mid-morning, two zyrtecs and another zantac after dinner and yet another 2 doxepin at bedtime. The hives are still breaking through despite all of this medicine. Frequently, I wake up with a swollen eye, or a fat lip. I am scared to death and sleep with an epi-pen on my night table. I pray and hope that maybe one day for me, they will just disappear.
These are the big ones that don't itch as much as they hurt. I have taken Benadryl and Prilosec which is a histamine 2 antagonist. I have 10 mg Prednisone tabs with me but the directions are to take 40 mg for angioedema and gradually decrease dosage. I know that if I take this dosage I will be up all night but am really uncertain about how much I should take. Using Aveeno to sooth the welts with minimal effect. I empathize with anyone going through this experience.
Every once in a while I will take 1 claritin and 1 zantac together but only if I am having a bad hive breakout. Usually once every few weeks if that.
I have recently worked my way up to children's ibuprofen and that seems to help, but I took a zantac the other day and had the same awful reaction of sweating, seriously low blood pressure, vomitting and then went into chills. It's so scary. I had a little bit of anesthesia for an endoscopy and the nurse said I was the first person in 30 years to throw up like I did.
I have seen a Dermatologist who says I need to accept the fact that I will not know what is causing the hives and to treat the hives (allegra and zantac) I have seen the Allergist who wants to check for an autoimmune disease which I don't understand because Hashimotos is an autoimmune disease or problem I thought. My thyroid doctor says there is no link between the thyroid and the hives and has taken a leave of abscence from his practice.
I can sympathize with you all. I myself just recently started experiencing dizziness associated with allergies. I turned 40 this year, and I have suffered from seasonal allergies for about ten years now, but it has never been accompanied with dizziness. I reside in NY and we have been having lots of rain lately, and for the past two weeks I have been experiencing dizziness.
i do not sleep around, nor have i had many sex partners, so i am wondering how the hell did i get herpes. my boyfriend and i are always together, so i hope this man has not cheated on me and brought something back to me. he has no symptoms of herpes, nor does he have these fissures. however, i will take the advise of a someone who posted their comment, how their doctor prescriped clobetosol cream .5%. i actuall use clobestol on my eczema that is on my hands and fingers.
The foul, sulfuric rotten egg/bad red wine burps and flatulence (and diarrhea) are mortifying. I have studied the entire human body (in my profession), and have close friendships with several internists. However, I have no health insurance. Based on what I've studied and have been told, the most likely culprits are gastroparesis (very slow emptying of the stomach) OR gall bladder disease.
He is still scratching and bleeding, but he is doing MUCH better (50%) just on Zithromax so we believe most of the severity was a secondary infection even though we were using tea tree oil, neo and polysporin, and bleach baths (1/4 cup in whole tub for antifungal antibacterial effect). We are weaning him off prednisone and added Zantac which our doc says is a histamine blocker that blocks what Atarax doesnt. We just started so we have not noticed a benefit yet with it.
I'm a stay at home mom with a similar (but not exact) experience to your daughter, so take my suggestion for what it's worth. I had chronic hives since childhood. It was undiagnosed until my 20s. My new allergist said people with dermagraphism (my form of chronic hives) was frequently a side symptom of an auto-immune disease. He tested me for 6 different ones, and I came back positive for Hashimotos (my immune system attacks my thyroid).
I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
I had done both before without incidents. I used Benadryl together with Zantac for relief. Now, I am down to one outbreak a day after I get up in the morning before eating anything. I take my two medications and I am OK till the next morning when I get up. Then I start all over again.
Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
So I went back in and they gave me an IV of benadryl, zantac, and steroids. The swelling went down and I went home. This morning (Saturday) I woke up with both eyes really itchy. I have continued the zantac, benadryl and steroids along with my usual zyrtec and now it is Saturday evening and my eyes are even worse - really welted and pink and yellow underneath and my eyelids are also itchy.
The allergist said stay on the Benadryl, but also take daily loratadine (10mg), Xyzal (levocitirizine, 5mg), Singulair(Montelukast Sodium, 10 mg), the prednisone, and Zantac to calm the stomach from the drugs and it also has an antihistamine in it, and use the albuterol inhaler when needed. And to gradually reduce the Benadryl (which is mind numbing).
My daughter was diagnosed with allergies 07/01/2008 with allergies to mold, cats, dogs, pollen, trees, dust mites, etc. She started with Extendryl, now have added Singulair and today Zantac for welts. Her allergies manifest in her skin. 6 months ago we thought she was austic because she only said 50 words (she turned 3 this September) and now she is much better. Go to a pediatric allergist.
It is 4 a.m. and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
Has anyone been able to heal their duodonal ulcers with Zantac and if so, how large was your dosage? Side effects? I realize I'm about 15 years older than last time I used Zantac so side effects may get me this time but it's something I've at least had success with in the past. these PPIs are about to kill me.
In addition to 4 Epi-pens I carry claritin reditabs, primatene mist, Prednisone, and Benedryl liquid caplets. I also take, daily by prescription, H1 and H2 blockers (Zantac, doxipen, Singular, Claritin x4, & Hydroxizyne), these meds have helped tremendously to keep the episodes down to only a few a year! Keep your head up, it does get better with time, patients, great doctors and great support.
Nitric oxide is lethal to bacteria and viruses and is also known to increase oxygen absorption in your lungs from 10-25 percent. This is why it's important to inhale through your nose, especially when you are exercising. Your smell and taste buds are connected. If you can't breathe well through your nose, then your sense of smell will suffer, which means that your sense of taste will be altered as well. This can lead to appetite and weight issues.
I plan on taking an extra Clonopin and Benadryl......
Hi and welcome to Part 50! Wow part 50. Please make yourself at home. Snuggle down. It'll be a bumpy ride but I know you Tramadol Warrirors can do it!
I had them about 7 years ago, they lasted about a year. I'm taking Zyrtec (once a day), Zantac (2 / day), Doxepin (150 mg @ bedtime), and Benadryl as needed. I had been on prednisone on and off since July but my doctor has taken me off of it (for obvious reasons). Unfortunately nothing I've taken other than prednisone has worked. My hives are particularly associated with pressure (underwear) - Since September i have worn a tank top under my clothes due to hives associated with wearing a bra.
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. 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.
My son is also having a similar reaction, after 7 days of Amox. and 1 day on Keflex. Even though I'm giving Benadryl he is still reacting once the Benadryl wears off. He's on Z-pak now & I have my fingers crossed that the hives will stop. My Dr. said it may get worse before it gets better...I guess it is doing just that. Hope your baby is better soon!
These are the big ones that don't itch as much as they hurt. I have taken Benadryl and Prilosec which is a histamine 2 antagonist. I have 10 mg Prednisone tabs with me but the directions are to take 40 mg for angioedema and gradually decrease dosage.

I take a zyrtec and zantac each morning and a allergra and draxapan (sp?) each night. I don't want ot know what would happen if I wasn't taking them. This past week my blood test finally came back with something to follow up on: h. pylori. This is a stomach bacteria and I was actually tested for this back in Nov. when the chest pain started. I am now taking a Prev pack 2X daily for 2 weeks to kill the bacteria. Unfortunaly, the swelling and hives have not subsided.
I tried benadryl and claritin and those didn't work. Last summer I was on Allegra and it was wonderful for 6 months then stopped working. I just recently started doubling the allergra dose, but it is not working. I am sooo sick of not being able to excercise. I will get in great shape and then I can't work out for weeks and have to start all over again! My doctor told me that certain people react to antihistmines differently than others, so maybe try all.
antibiotic overuse and misuse pollution and environmental toxins stress and emotional state genetic makeup lifestyle nutritional status The order here is significant, in that if they are listed in the order of least to greatest significance; meaning: your nutritional status and lifestyle override your genetic makeup. Good Luck!
and the hives persist. It seems I'm in the auto-immune urticaria group. Currently Xyzal and Zantac combined at off label dosing is working pretty well, some wheels every day, but manageable. I guess my family and I just really had our hopes up that there would be a tangible cause and a resolution treatment. From reading some of the other blogs, it seems I may have to expect maintenance at best?? Is this right? I may need to be on these meds indefinitely?
