Allegra and dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Allegra and dogs


Avatar n tn The two other most commonly prescribed antihistimines are Allegra and Claritin. Different meds are effective for different patients, so you & your docs may need to experiment to find out what works best with the fewest side effects. Another consideration is possible allergy shots, which might help reduce your sensitivity to docs. This would be something you would need to discuss with an allergist.
Avatar f tn It's sweet that you don't want to upset your daughter but I have the same types of allergies and I just had to move my dogs outside. The longer I kept them in the house the worse the symptoms got. I don't know about how Allegra would help your skin, it is an antihistamine though so it would probably help with it minimally. I would suggest you get an emulsifying ointment from your pharmacist though.
Avatar f tn Doc put me on Allegra in the morning, Doxepin at night and supposed to start 20mg of Prednisone tomorrow morning. Good luck to all and try to remember, it doesn't matter what they think of your spots, we all have to go through something like this at one point of our lives. Cheers.
Avatar f tn I'm just wondering how many of us are agoraphobic and to what extent. I know that I am and fight it all the time but make sure that I do leave my home most days. I have a very dear friend who hasn't left her home in almost 7 years. She has had all kinds of therapy and has tried SSRIs and other meds but is now VERY meds phobic and even with the CBT she finally gave up and just stays home. I'm wondering if there are others on this forum who are like her or are the majority like me.
Avatar n tn The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and 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 Having been in almost perfect health until then, I stared getting severe allergy symptoms including eye allergies,fatigue, dry cough and wheeze .,esp during spring.Time coincided with my oral surgery.Penicillin, bruofen, and Allegra took a toll on my stomach this time, I believe.Ended up having dyspeptic attacks.My physician disagree that the medicines caused it, and swears it is the stress.She wanted me on antidepressants.
Avatar m tn I started a daily regimen of Allegra 24 hour 180Mg which stopped the itching of the eyes and swelling, however, I don’t want to take it the rest of my life. So the question is there any way to figure out what is causing the reaction? Or is there a natural antihistamine that I can take to stop the reaction? I tried not to take Allegra for a few days while switching to Benadryl before bed and it seemed to have subsided the swelling around my eyes until 2 days later, so now I'm back on Allegra.
Avatar n tn I have been dizzy now for almost 2 months, and my doctor has given me nasonex and allegra. I haven't started the allegra yet, but my symptoms are getting worse. The dizzyness is almost all of the time, and especially bad if I move to quick and from sitting to standing. Headaches are getting worse, hard to get rid of. I have had blood work and an exam, and all the Dr. noticed was that my nasal passages were extremely dry. Everything else has checked out great.
Avatar n tn I have been taking Flonase and Singulair for over a year. Recently, I was put on Allegra D and I just finished my antibiotic (doxycycline) prescription. I have dogs, but my allergies seem to worsen at work or when I do heavy cleaning and dusting. (I have had dogs for the past 11 years with no problems) I use a vaporizor/humidifier. I keep a clean house. I use a HEPA fan at work and home. I guess I'm just frustrated. I can't make plans in any season without worrying about getting sick.
318628 tn?1211850094 I recently was tested for allergies because of recurrent sinus and wheezing problems. I am allergic to trees, weeds, molds,grass, dogs,cats and dust mites. My doctor put me on Avelox, Allegra D, Symbicort and Prednisone. All of this for 10 days. He also wants me to get the Allergy shots for 6 months and states that I would feel better around then. Is this a waste of money and time or do these shots work? I have had a rough 2007. Never have I had such a problem.
Avatar n tn In Jun, I was sick with extreme fatigue, headaches, and dizziness. Saw a doctor in Jul and was given OTC headache meds. They did bloodwork that came back normal. Since that time I have had daily head pressure and tinnitus. The tinnitus comes and goes and can be really loud and annoying. Visited another doctor in Sep who thought it might be an allergic reaction and was given zyrtec for a month. No change with the head pressure.
Avatar f tn 1) KEEP the dog out of your bedroom. We put a baby gate up in our door way when we got the puppy. I knew I was allergic to dogs and had just been diagnosed with asthma. Keeping the dog away from me was a priority. The dog rarely comes past our daughter's door. He is now 10. 2) Wash your hands well after handling the dog. 3) Vacuum and clean regularly. Bathing the dog often will help keep pollen off of his coat from bothering, but really does little for true dog allergy.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone, I have been having this problem for the last 4 years and still didn't find a solution for my problems. It started with ear pressure and my ears feel clogged and full all the time and I keep trying to pop them every day. I keep opening jaw and pushing through nose to try to keep them open but with no longterm success. This has been happening on a daily basis for the last for 4 years and it is really hard to live like this.
Avatar f tn Im allergic to the horses the dogs the cat the hay my rabbits...
Avatar f tn BUT as to now there r simple things u can do 1st, for seasonal geta 25$ kenalog shot takes few days to work and lasts 4 months claritan is available generic and is cheap for 24 hr NON DROWSY antihistamine effect STAY AWAY FROM dirty little animals like dogs and cats and if u touch them , wash your hands immediately to keep from rubbing in your face allergy shots work wonders if u r inclined and u don't need to take them long (ignore what they tell u) as to heart problem, KEEP AN EYE ON IT bu
Avatar n tn I guess if there is a certain kind of pressure and rubing againist the hands they start to bother me and usually cold water or ice, anything cold makes it feel better. I had experienced a migraine a few days ago but I get those normally so I dont know if that has something to do with it. Any ideas on what would cause this kind of itching on the palms of the hands and feet under the skin??
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
1008544 tn?1256102688 I am seeing an allergist and am allergic to trees, weeds, grass, dogs, cats and cockroaches. I have seen 4 doctors about this breathing and coughing issue but all of them have said that I do NOT have asthma but I am still convinced that I do. I have bad anxiety so I know that sometimes my breathing issues are anxiety attacks, but other times I will be happy and laughing alot and all of the sudden my chest will become tight and will not relax for an hour or so.
3539331 tn?1347558007 I have tried Benedryl (for us both) and Allegra, Claridon, etc. and none of them have helped either of us. My Vet gave her some that didn't help either. Does anyone know of allergy drug that I could give her to help her?????
Avatar n tn They cause less drowsiness and can work just as well. These medications include fexofenadine (Allegra), and cetirizine (Zyrtec). You can also use nasal corticosteroid sprays like nasocort or flonase. Decongestants may also be helpful in reducing symptoms such as nasal congestion, but they should not be used for long periods. Cromolyn sodium is a nasal spray (Nasalcrom) for treating hay fever. If the symptoms are intense then you can go in for immunotherapy Hope it helps.
Avatar m tn I am exposed to Dogs and Cats on a daily basis, could this be Toxocariasis? I haven't had a fever but do have a dry cough. The only meds I am on now are Allegra, Zantac and just ending a four week round of Minocycline. If this is possibly from Minocycline, how long does it take for a drug induced rash to go away?
936133 tn?1244832491 For instance, red wine will precipitate migraines in many people, and chocolate, nuts, hot dogs and Chinese food triggers headaches in certain cases. I generally don’t advise omitting all of these foods, unless you notice a pattern where these foods are causing headaches. 8. If I give you a prophylactic medication for headaches, you should take it daily, as prescribed. If you have trouble tolerating it, please let me know and we can consider using something else.

175861 tn?1428186013 Things that were different were that I had been seeing more people then and I had visited my dad in the hospital and used a hospital bathroom. Maybe I caught that there. This time, Ive only been seeing my dogs and my parents, and going to the store.
Avatar f tn i have been experiencing this about every other week and it scares me so much that sometimes i'm afraid to try to sleep. i have no idea what it is but all of the descriptions under this question match almost exactly what i've been getting... i'll be trying to fall asleep and then all of the sudden i hear something frightening .. sometimes it happens multiple times in a row before i can actually peacefully sleep.

Avatar f tn However, I am still on a steady regimen of Temaril-P because when I try to wean as recommended, she end up scratching herself in the aimpit area and developing bumps which she scratches on her hind legs and feet to the point of bleeding. She also scratches her neck. The other symptoms I notice are red hot skin and watery eyes and swollen pink eye lids. When she opens her wounds I end up on a round of Cephalexin.
Avatar n tn It turned out I was not allergic to any foods, but I had severe allergic rhinitis and am allergic to dogs, trees, dust, weeds, grass and **** roaches. I went on weekly allergy shots, take singulair and allegra daily, and within a few months of starting the treatment, my horrible symptoms went away. I'm on my 4th year of treatment and it works fine as long as I get the treatment.
Avatar m tn The only sad thing is I think I figured out what triggered all of this - our dogs. I'm allergic to dogs and we had one but it looks like adding a playmate caused too many particulates to be thrown into the air. The flushes are clearing out the infection and I made two "no pet" zones in the house with air purifiers. I've been sticking to those areas of the house and since then the swelling is gradually decreasing each day.
548980 tn?1214826012 I eat well, I drink lots and lots of water, I dont drink alcohol, I do smoke-which i know i need to stop, and im on Nasonex spray, Astelin Spray, Allegra, Antivert (take as needed), Klonopin and Paxel (sp?). The Klonopin and Paxel are for the anxiety... Thanks in advance.
