Zantac and benadryl together

Common Questions and Answers about Zantac and benadryl together


Avatar_n_tn I am currently on allegra <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> zantac when I first wake up, 2 doxepins mid-morning, two zyrtecs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_f_tn These are the big ones that don't itch as much as they hurt. I have taken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>benadryl</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_m_tn Every once in a while I will take 1 claritin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 1 zantac together but only if I am having a bad hive breakout. Usually once every few weeks if that.
Avatar_n_tn I have recently worked my way up to children's ibuprofen and that seems to help, but I took a zantac the other day <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_f_tn I have seen a Dermatologist who says I need to accept the fact that I will not know what is causing the hives <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> to treat the hives (allegra <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_n_tn The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> occasional moments of nausea <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue. It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned.
Avatar_n_tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_n_tn The foul, sulfuric rotten egg/bad red wine burps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> flatulence (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_n_tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_m_tn 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).
Avatar_n_tn I think everything is over <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I clean up. I walk out of the toilet <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_m_tn I had done both before without incidents. I used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>benadryl</span> 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.
544292_tn?1268886268 Hi <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
Avatar_n_tn So I went back in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they gave me an IV of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>benadryl</span>, zantac, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> steroids. The swelling went down <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_f_tn The allergist said stay on the benadryl, but also take daily loratadine (10mg), Xyzal (levocitirizine, 5mg), Singulair(Montelukast Sodium, 10 mg), the prednisone, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Zantac to calm the stomach from the drugs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it also has an antihistamine in it, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> use the albuterol inhaler when needed. and to gradually reduce the benadryl (which is mind numbing).
Avatar_f_tn It is 4 a.m. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_f_tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_n_tn Has anyone been able to heal their duodonal ulcers with Zantac <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_m_tn In addition to 4 Epi-pens I carry claritin reditabs, primatene mist, Prednisone, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Benedryl liquid caplets. I also take, daily by prescription, H1 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_dr_m_tn Nitric oxide is lethal to bacteria <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> viruses <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
535089_tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its cannabinoid test <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
Avatar_n_tn A year later, I had extensive reconstructive surgery (thanks to a bad delivery 17 years before that should have been a C-section) along with a vaginal hysterectomy. Once again, I developed the hives <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> itching. They were controllable with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>benadryl</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Zantac, and the symptoms lasted for 4 weeks until the sutures had completely dissolved. (My surgeon was supportive and helpful in our discussions on this matter).
Avatar_n_tn I plan on taking an extra Clonopin and benadryl......
544292_tn?1268886268 Hi <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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!
Avatar_m_tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> out completely for 10 to 15 seconds <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar_n_tn 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), <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>benadryl</span> 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.
Avatar_n_tn My son is also having a similar reaction, after 7 days of Amox. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 1 day on Keflex. Even though I'm giving <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>benadryl</span> he is still reacting once the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>benadryl</span> 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!
Avatar_f_tn These are the big ones that don't itch as much as they hurt. I have taken <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>benadryl</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Prilosec which is a histamine 2 antagonist.

97615_tn?1212682189 I tried <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>benadryl</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> claritin <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> those didn't work. Last summer I was on Allegra <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
530191_tn?1214166411 and the hives persist. It seems I'm in the auto-immune urticaria group. Currently Xyzal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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?
