Allegra and zyrtec together

Common Questions and Answers about Allegra and zyrtec together


Avatar m tn In the first place Zyrtec tends to make you drowsy and Allegra tends to perk you up. It would be pretty weird to take them together. I take Zyrtec daily and when my allergies act up I take a single dose of Benadryl which is short-acting. that works well for me.
Avatar m tn Both Allegra and Zyrtec are 24 hour medications in my area. I have known several people who took 3 Zyrtec in one day, and my allergist says that you can't really OD on antihistimines. You should be sure to drink PLENTY of water and watch for signs of constipation and dehydration. You should make sure that your dr is well aware of how much of these meds you are taking to make sure that they are ok with any other medications you maybe taking.
Avatar n tn After about 2 years and number of doctors, allergists and internal medicine doctors, who put me on zyrtec, zantac, allegra, and singulair, I still was seeing no relief. The steroids worked at first, but when they wear off the symptoms would come right back. I stopped drinking cokes, diet and regular, thinking this may help. I read an article on food additives:
Avatar n tn We visited many doctors and all denied the flu shot was the culprit and no one can tell us when this will go away! He takes 2 zyrtec and benedryl at night. If he misses a dose his eyes and lips swell up and he is covered head to toe. It's annoying that I know what caused this but no one will own up to it.
Avatar f tn Based on my extensive research and determination to find out what was causing it as she cried herself to sleep some nights, I wanted to share my information. First she was taking Zyrtec, this is bad stuff and can cause hives and/or itching as well as eliminate them, feel free to research this stuff on the web...I literally had to ween her from this medication and I am convinced over time it made her extremely itchy and prevented the elimination of hives.
Avatar f tn I saw an allergist a week ago and she put me on allegra in the day time and zyrtec at night, and I'm also on a nose spray called Veramyst. The hives have never gone away completely save for the three days I was on a steroid. Today they are as worse as ever. I just want them to go away forever. And I don't know how to make that happen....
Avatar m tn singular, atarax,, xyzal, Zyrtec, Allegra, Zantac, nasonex , and a few others I can't spell ) many of which would put most people to sleep. The only downside of Zolair has been missing a dose by any amount over 14 days , the hives come back just as before. I hope her allergy history helps a little,as I know this decision is very hard. But has been well worth it for us.
Avatar f tn I have taken Rhinocort, Nasacort, Nasonex, Flo-nase, albuterol inlaler, Xopenex inhaler, Allegra, Zyrtec, allegra- D, Clairitin, Clarinex, Mucofin, Mucofin-D, Mucinex, Mucinex-D, Expectorant store brands etc.etc.....And the whole acid-reflux thing, thats just a shot in the dark. I have had that and it is nothing even close. Nothing worked. I have recently been readin up on Aurveda. Indian medicine. I dont know much yet - but they seem to be on the right track.
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 pdf And just google it for other articles and medical publications. This is lumped together with Fibromyalgia much of the time, which can exist in conjunction with MPD, but is most definitely different, but many people recognize the name "Fibromyalgia". It may help you to find the "right" doctor. Good luck!
Avatar n tn The feeling was not only uncomfortable it was down right scary I thought something was pulling like a vacuum inside my ears and they would pop.
Avatar n tn This is the 5th and longest bout (about two weeks long so far) in 3 months. I have tried antibiotics and it comes back. I am on every allergy treatment -- zyrtec, allergy shots, steriod spray and I got a steroid shot when I was at the doc a week ago. Alll of it has helped in the past, but not since March. I did find a few alternatives on the internet I am trying (out of desperation).
Avatar m tn They cause less drowsiness and can work just as well. These medications include fexofenadine (Allegra), and cetirizine (Zyrtec). You can discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist and get a referral done for an allergist. I hope it helps. Take care and God bless.
Avatar f tn I took a decongestant and stopped taking my daily allegra. I seemed to feel better for a few.days. I've never had a fever or headache with any of this. I have started to take my allegra again and today I started coughing up a little mucous again and my nose is running again. Can someone please tell me if there's an order I need to take these meds in or suggest anything I could do? I also need.
Avatar f tn 3) As the doctor said, Benadryl can be taken as your describe. There are no danger of doing so. I have bad pollen allergies and take several 24 hour Zyrtec a day (Claritin and Allegra did nothing). In the spring I get very itchy with the pollen allergy. I layer on a few Benadryl when it gets unbearable. I hope that helps you and gives you some actions to take so that you can start controlling your reactions better. Oh, I am also allergic to ibuprophen.
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 especially in conjunction with regular allergies (eye, dust, pollen) and a breathing condition...I know that they all run together and it is difficult to figure out whether or not it's food or environment...argh...
Avatar m tn So, I went to the allergist who put me on anti-histamines (1 Zyrtec AND 1 Allegra per day) for a year. Just awful and it didn't solve the swelling problem. Time to be my own Dr. again!!! I went into major research mode and found out that people with Hashimoto's can test in "normal" range, but still have symptoms and should be treated. I found myself a new thyroid specialist who told me I'd probably had Hashimoto's for 20 years, possibly triggered by the hcv, but never new it.
1646392 tn?1333255493 I can't take allegra and sudafed together so I switched to zyrtec. I am also allergic to IB Profrin and Aspirin.
Avatar n tn It is ONLY on highways that I have difficulty. I believe that speed and visual cues together are somehow causing this. However, when I am a passenger, I really do not have any problems. It is only when I am driving.
Avatar n tn I saw an ENT about 3 weeks ago and had a hearing test - everything was good, and all that I got was some song and dance about it being allergies and to take Zyrtec and Rhinocort. So now I'm taking that, but I have also delved into Colostrum as it is supposed to naturally support your immune system. I have also been taking 5-HTP (50mg) for the insomina/anxiety, but don't go overboard with anything because I have read a few studies that it can backfire if you take too much.
Avatar dr m tn The goal of immunotherapy is to rewire the immune system so it no longer overacts to allergens and causes hay fever. Putting It All Together If you have an underlying sleep-breathing problem such as obstructive sleep apnea or upper airway resistance syndrome then it’s likely that you’ll have some kind of allergies or nonallergic rhinitis, whether mild or severe. Not only will your nose be overly sensitive to allergens or weather changes, it can also be irritated by your stomach juices.
Avatar f tn my son is 2 1/2 and has been on zyrtec, clarinex, claritin, and generic brands of each one and nothing has helped....his alleriges are so severe that it caused his asthma......he has had so many ear, sinus, infections to count....and has had RSV 3 times in 3 months....if anyone comes up with anything please let me know as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn Should I stop cycling all together or just go easy? This is prime riding season and hate to miss training, but sure don't want to make matters worse. thanks!
Avatar n tn Then it may flare up after eating dinner. I have cut out caffeine and soda all together and really limit my beer intake. I've been drinking lots of water too. I know that it is post nasal drip because once it clears up it is completely clear. I have really bad allergies and that is enough to deal with. I'm trying to move up in my company but feel that I'm a liability. I want to move into sales but how can I put on presentations when I'm coughing and constantly clearning my throat.
Avatar m tn I've been taking Allegra and Flonase (prescription) alternately for "allergy symptoms". I have a nagging, wheezy cough that just won't quit, a sore throat, and it feels like someone has their foot on the base of my throat. Nothing really stops it and I suspect it's just the effects of the Riba. My doc did say that if you have allergies, you'll have lots more with the Riba!
Avatar n tn I thought I got a bug bite which caused it. I itched for 24 hours and then finally broke down and took a zyrtec. Next morning all of the welts from my scratching were gone (which led me to believe it was not bug bites, they would have remained). So I have no idea what's causing it. Only new foods I started eating were bananas and yoplait light. Guess I have to live with it. But man it's horrible!
Avatar f tn Whether taking one or the other will suffice, instead of both, would best be determined by trial and error, with you and your doctor working together to reach that decision.
Avatar n tn The best thing I have used for the skin rash is alpa-keri bath oil. I use it in my bath and then when I get out of the tub, while still wet....I pour some in my hands and rub over entire body. It has been wonderful for me. By the way you get this over the counter @ the drug store. Best Wishes!!!!
Avatar f tn Sometimes it settles after a few minutes and sometimes it doesn't, forcing me to sit down again. I'm not on sudafed, I'm on allegra, ranitidine, and zyrtec (I know it sounds like a lot but it was bad reaction - I guess I can talk to my allergist to reduce it). Yes, all of my electrolytes are fine (sodium, potassium, etc.) In fact, all of my blood work always comes back fine. Thyroid has been checked three times and always comes back fine. TSH ranges b/t 0.58 and 0.
