Allegra vs allegra d

Common Questions and Answers about Allegra vs allegra 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 Since mid-December, I've had PACs and have been subsequently diagnosed with ectopic atrial tachycardia. The problems started when I had a cold and took allegra-d. I had a lot of premature beats which disappeared within 24 hours. The problem has been reoccurring in spite of my elimination of caffeine and other stimulants. I also had a couple episodes of tachycardia that would last for a few seconds, stop, start again and thus resulting in a pretty chaotic heartbeat.
Avatar n tn ::: vent :::::: along with your post ... I used to be able to take pediatric dosing of Sudafed + Tylenol with a cold/sinus and now all the otc meds have this other drug in it caled phenyl...... (not sure on spelling) and it makes me VERY VERY TIRED and jittery .. nice, huh? If you cannot use Afrin what about one of the nasal sprays that are prescription like Flonase or Nasacort . I know they are steroids but for use when ill may work .. they do help my daughters with severe allergies.
Avatar n tn moist het/and/or cold packs; steam inhaler; Allegra or allegra D; Nasonex; Rhinocort; antibiotics; saline nasal wash; MRI of the sinuses. Don't know where you are but hopefully the sinus problems are being agravated by the allergy season which eventually will be over. Stay the recommended 40 week course as best you can. But since you're a stage 2, you've got lots of wiggle room.
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.
Avatar m tn I Switched from Allegra-D to plain allegra, the decongestant was causing me to feel jiterry and I was up all night the first day that I took it. I still hear crickets in my ears. The only thing that drowns them out is when I take my dog fo a walk in the woods. The crickets outside are louder than the crickets inside. That's so nice!
Avatar m tn one person I talked to with asthmatic bronchitis has a supply of prednisone to stop bronchitis from developing. I take singulair for my asthma and also Allegra D now. I want to take advair but the docs always put me on symbicort for some reason?
530191 tn?1214166411 I was on that for seven years and finally got a sensitivity to it and it was no longer effective. With autoimmune urticaria vs. chronic idiopathic urticaria (which they said was what i had for eight of the ten years) I couldn't use antihistimines at all with effect, doxepin was the only one! Plaquenil is our next option. However using synthroid (synthetic thyroid) daily has done more for my hives than anything used thus far.
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.
97615 tn?1212682189 Initially, most anti-histamines were not effective at treating it but in later years I found Fexofenadine hydrochloride 180 mg (Allegra/Telfast) prevents attacks. There is plenty of good literature available online on Cholinergic Allergies (try searching in Basically, the average time you will suffer is 7 years, although people can suffer on and off for 30 years. I am sorry to tell you this but apparently there is NOTHING you can do to get rid of it.
Avatar n tn I have been having PAC's since 12/01. They began while I was taking Allegra-D, but did not stop when the medication was stopped after only about 8 pills. I have seen my PCP and a Cardiologist who did blood tests for anemia,electrolytes and thyroid - all were normal. A 24 hr. Holter monitor and an echocardiogram documented the PAC's at 1100+ per 24 hrs, plus a few PVC's, but showed no other abnormality. I do not smoke or drink alcohol, and have cut out caffeine with no effect.
179332 tn?1273250959 My doctor told me to stop all BP meds and just do exercise and salt-free diet but my BP shot up without the meds, felt dizzy and wobbly. I take Allegra for the allergy during the day and Benadryl at night. It took a month and a half for my allergy sympton to clear, the hives and swelling and burning feeling. Because of this I am stressed out and anxious, adding to the high blood pressure. Any solution to this problem anyone? Please share!
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 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 m tn -Variable penis texture and weight (flaccid+firm vs. lighter-than-normal vs. almost normal, etc.). -Occasional itching on the left and right side, near the base. -More visible veins throughout the penis. -Left-side vein prominence. One left-side vein is much darker than I remember, and stands out the most amongst the aforementioned prominent veins.
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 (only one I have found that has no digestive upsets). Im lactose intolerant, vegetarian, IBS-D and some sensitivity to some forms of gluten. I have tried dairy free BIO-K, and Dairy Free Good Belly but didnt find much relief from them. Any suggestions on a "dairy free/lactose free" probiotic I can try...or any other suggestions...?? Its hard to get the physical results I want without being able to reall incorporate a heart healthy cardio routine.
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 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!
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 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 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 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.
