Allegra d vs zyrtec d

Common Questions and Answers about Allegra d vs zyrtec d


Avatar n tn I had the allergy tests done about 4 years ago which were reactive to mold, grass and there was minimal reaction to dogs. I tried many drugs on the market. Allegra, Claritin, Benadryl... For last 3 years Zyrtec-D was working fine, not great, but tolerable. After what happened on Monday the doctor put me on Prednisone for 5 days, so inflammation definitely goes away , but palpitations are so intense I can barely go 2 flights of stairs, forget jogging.
Avatar n tn Yes, that is another thing I hate, I also get allergies with nasal congestion and used to take Zyrtec D and Nasonex which helped a lot, but now I can't take that I do not think. I am going to ask my Endo Friday and let him tell me exactly what I can take. I will be so glad to get the treatment on this hyperthyroid rolling and I am even looking forward to RAI if I have to take it. I know hypo is no walk in the park either but I had still rather be hypo than hyper.
10947 tn?1281407852 I was glad to hear of the possible connection to VS bras. I have stopped wearing the VS bras, so time will tell. Perhaps now there will be relief to the possible cause of this irritating problem. Thanks to the media and others for making this problem public.
530191 tn?1214166411 As I said, I've been hive-free for three years, until last week. My allergist said I should take a Zyrtec at night and an Allegra in the morning. Thus far, they've done little, if anything at all, to mitigate my symptoms. This time around it seems like I'm getting more angioedema (disfiguring facial swelling) reactions as well; for the last two days, I've woken up w/ swelling in either my lips or eyes or both. So, understandably, I'm a little concerned.
97615 tn?1212682189 Its not always when I work out but it used to be. Now I am constantly on antihistamines (Zyrtec D by day, xyzal by night). But I am soo tired of the meds. I am irritable sometimes and tired and fuzzy. I am trying to find an alternative. Besides the regular red bumpy hives I have been getting weird splotches in random spots on my hands and arms. Its bizarre and itchy. It makes no sense. They are in no real pattern. Its beyond baffling.
Avatar n tn i recently began to break out in hives nightly when i evaluated all of my foods i thought i was allergic to fish/shellfish eliminated those and finally realized that I was allergic to the blue dye in my thyroid medication levoxyl i changed meds and my m.d. put me on allegra and i haven't had hives since check the labels on all of your medications and food to see if food dyes are a possible culprit.
Avatar n tn we have all tried hot/ cold water. pool water vs chlorine free water etc.... yet we still itch severely. if anyone has other suggestions other than what has been mentioned above.. please feel free to contact at dieselpower313 at a o l *******.....
Avatar n tn we started him on benadryl and calamine lotiong, not relief so the Doctor gave him allegra and cortisone, no relief. Then the dermatologist gave him a shot of kenalog, and prescription cortisone. still no relief after two emergency room visits they gave him hydroxine and blood workups for kidney, liver, and thyroid came back normal. 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..
Avatar n tn But once or twice a month, I sneeze uncontrollably, hundreds of times, all day long, and nothing, not Allegra-D, not Claritin, not Benadryl, will stop it. And the weird thing is, this sneezing is NOT accompanied by the usual itching. When I have a "sneezing day," I am nonfunctional. All events are canceled. It is absolutely exhausting. I sometimes wonder if it has anything to do with weather or barometric changes; it seems like it rains or there's a temp.
Avatar m tn The less inactive ingredients the better. Make sure to slather it on, vs. rub it in. Rubbing is a really bad idea. My wife is a doctor, and she had all sorts of anti-histamine remedies that do not work. This is not a histamine itch. Leaving it open to air makes it worse. Don't know why, but a shirt is imperative to keeping it calm once you get there. Nothing works 100%. You're looking for little things that give you whatever relief you can get.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I first was told to take Sudafed, and then told to take Mucinex-D. After having bad experiences with those, my doctor gave me Allegra-D. Well, after figuring out that the "-D" in these medicines were making me crazy because of the Pseudoephidrine, I quickly got off of them. Every time I took them, I became very "jittery" and felt "hyper" but without the energy.
Avatar n tn Wondering if it could be caused from a) taking a daily allergy decongestant (zyrtec D) that might cause vag drying. Also started taking BC pills about a year ago (yasmin) which can affect hormones that also slightly raise yeast levels - and cause drying. I've been using lubricant, but I'm wondering if even that is irritating me more. Sunday got such sever inner fissures that I can hardly walk. Going to the bathroom brings tears to my eyes.
Avatar n tn There are preservatives in wine - maybe that's what I'm allergic/sensitive to. I have allergies (mold, ragweed, cats, etc.) and take 1 Allegra/day when needed - still taking that. It could also be the black kohosh I suppose or God only knows what else. BUT - I know that since I stopped drinking the red wine and stopped the vitamins, I'VE BEEN ABLE TO SLEEP THE WHOLE NIGHT THROUGH!!!!! That seems to be a miracle to me. I used to wake myself up from scratching. I am still going to the dr.
Avatar f tn but I know something is seriously wrong. Since my surgery, like you, Im on clarinex-D 24 hour dosage, with lunesta for sleep and celebrex for pain. Pre-surgery I was on nothing and worked out pretty regularly, sometimes 2x a day, weights and cardio split. Now, I ache and hobble around.... I think instead of going into a long winded story of what I think is going on with me, I'm just going to start telling people I have heavy metal poisoning.
Avatar n tn For 2 weeks I was fighting the symptoms, with and without the eye drops, Allegra, Claritin and other Allergy and Dry eye relieve drops - none of it worked - none. Lubricants didn't do anything either- my eyes are dry and puffy, red and bumpy. Regardless of whether I use or don't use makeup some days I wakeup and can't even open my eyes. January 2009 I went back to see the allergist and begged him to prescribe Alrex to me.
Avatar m tn For relief from the crawling try an antihistime, something like Zyrtec. It gave me great relief. Still on the trail of the cure for this thing, next is to sprinkle borax on the carpets and leave for a week & repeat. Someone had success with this so it is worth a try.
Avatar f tn (Double and triple blades are kind of like bringing a bull dozer to a delicate garden in need of a small shovel...overkill!) -Try the epilady siggestion to. I might compare using that only vs. following up with a single blade within 24 hrs (much like you do when waxing). The follow up is to avoid or reduce ingrown hairs or skin layer that seem to produce following a wax. What ever works right?? - Good luck everybody!
