Common Questions and Answers about Zyrtec vs telfast

zyrtec

Red patches appear as I am lifting. I am taking 10mg Zyrtec everyday. Does seem to make any difference. I also use anti itch cream / lotion from Eucerine. Very frustrating! Before this happened a couple of months ago, I had zero allergies to anything and I am 40 years old.
The most well tolerated initial treatment is the non-sedating antihistamine Claritin. Zyrtec is similar but may sometimes cause sedation. If that doesn't eliminate the hives, a sedating-type of antihistamine (hydroxyzine, cyproheptadine or doxepin) is added at night. High doses may be needed and this will cause sedation. Fortunately, most patients will become less affected by sedation after they have taken the drug regularly for a while.
My pharmacist mentioned it and said some people to better on the natural hormone vs. the syntethic . (Again, the reaction I had to Leveothyroxine was: shortlly after taking it I felt: drugged/intoxicated (so much so that I wouldn't drive a car!!), headache, nausea, burning or warm skin, and diarrhea, all symptoms lasted for 4 hours every time I took the med., even at 25mcg. My TSH is 10. I took the med. for 5 days and gave up because it made me feel so horrible!!
then the allergist said his bloodwork for allergies is normal too. she put him on zyrtec and two hydroxine at night so the kid can maybe get some sleep.. Now were going on 5 weeks he has missed 3 weeks of school and there's still no relief for this poor kid in site. we've tried oatmeal baths, lotion, bactine which has lidocane and still nothing. Can someone give us some suggestions. It's 2007 I can't believe all this modern technology and no one can help itching.
Apart from giving me the above medical term he essentially gave me 3 types of drugs (Claratyne, Zyrtec and Telfast) and told me to go try it out. I'm also trying to see whether there is a Cholinergic Urticaria specialist in Melbourne that can help with this. For the next few weeks I'm going to take regular dosage of Zyrtec (3 times a day) and will test out the effects during that period.
I was prescribed Elidel, which does help after a day or two of use with the swelling and redness Applying a THICK coat of aquaphor at night helps with the drying that comes after the original onset and helps with the wrinkles and or chaffing from itching and heating of the skin from a warm towel This time my itching starting on a Sunday night and I was a full blown mess by Monday - Tuesday. I started Benadryl and then Zyrtec Sunday night as well as the Elidel.
