7945295 tn?1397658820 Do any of you lady's take zyrtec for allergies? I don't like taking anything period but my allergies are sever. I claritan with my son but I feel like zyrtec works better. I was told its just as safe but figured I'd see what you lady's take.
Avatar m tn If these are both same as zyrtec, I've been prescribed zyrtec for allergies on a daily basis
Avatar f tn Check with the doctor but he will more than likely firmly recommend Claritin and warn against Benadryl. keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I've been on Claritin/Zyrtec my whole pregnancy. I know Claritin is approved, I believe Zyrtec is fine too.
Avatar f tn HORRIBLE ALLERGIES! it depends what works for you. My doctor has gave me the okay on zyrtec, benedryl, and claritin. Claritin doesn't work for me so I take a zyrtec EVERYDAY morning, than about 6 at night when it start wearing off I have to take a benedryl. Hope this helps. & hope you feel better.
Avatar f tn Anybody suffering with skin allergy during pregnancy?? Its driving me mad and no idea whats its from!! I have red spots covering my ribs and back ... yuk!!
Avatar m tn You may also want to consider taking one of the over the counter allergy meds such as Zyrtec or Benadryl. HOWEVER, do not take ANYTHING without checking with your doctor first, especially if you are already on other medication or under a doctor's care for anything. You sure don't want to end up with an interaction between meds. Best of luck - I know how it is with cat allergies - mine are HORRIBLE!
Avatar m tn Never was able to find a cause but my doctor had be start taking an everyday allergy medication like Zyrtec or Claritin. Once I started that the hives went away and haven't came back. I would first see if you can find a common irritant you can eliminate. If not try taking Zyrtec or Claritin.
Avatar f tn Can I take allergy medications?
503607 tn?1275671579 That was a bit weird I think. There must be something you can use? I guess it depends on the arrhythmia. Some of the allergy meds (especially the old, non-selective ones such as terfenadine and hydroxyzine) can prolong heart repolarization (QT time) and cannot/should not be used with antiarrhythmic drugs or certain antibiotic drugs, or if someone has prolonged QT time on EKG. The sedative allergy meds are most likely to cause tachycardia (I think.. my knowledge about this is a bit low..
Avatar f tn Hey ladies anyone of you on allergy medication. I ask because today getting my 5 year old ready for school I made a mistake of taking his allergy medication (singular 4 mg ) insted of my prenatl pill. know I'm waiting patiently on my ob to call me back...
Avatar f tn started getting hives and an increase in my asthma symptoms in sept 2010, no explanation for this that i am aware of, tried benadryl seemed to make it worse, lortadine didnt help either, the itching, burning, stinging was unbearable. started taking zyrtec, seemed to help a little but starts up again so i also started taking zantac along with the zyrtec. i am still getting some hives and itching but now for about the past 3-4 wks now i'm also getting nausea, please help!
Avatar f tn My 12 year old daughter was just diagnosed today with this. I read the other posts relating thyroid problems with autoimmune urticaria. Since I have hypothyroidism, I'm guessing that she should be tested for this at her regular doctor's office? Right now all I can afford is the double dose of Zyrtec, but with everything else she's allergic to (7 types of trees, 3 molds, ragweed, cat, feathers,dust mites & roaches of course) the allergy shots would be better for her, right?
Avatar f tn It's allergy season over here and mine are in full effect today and I'm miserable :( I'm not taking anything until I talk to my doctor at my next appointment, which is tomorrow thank goodness, but I was just wondering what you ladies take for seasonal allergies? I remember my ob with mylast child said it was safe to take anything but Allegra, but I'd still like to know what other mommies to be are taking for allergy relief. Thanks!
Avatar f tn It's not okay pretty much the only think u can take is tylenol . There's others that you can take tho for allergy . The reason I know is because my doc gave me a list . For allergies take either claritin or benadryl thosecare safe for you and your baby. I hope this helps :) if u need any more help on Meds that are safe to take just ask . By the way congrats on your pregnancy.
Avatar f tn I want to know, is there any alternative if you have to take allergy medication? The only reason I ask is because my eyes swell, I sneeze non-stop, and if I get over heated I weeze and cough a lot. I was thinking maybe a allergy shot could be a alternative to oral medication and nasal spray.
Avatar f tn You can take Zyrtec allergy. Just not Zyrtec D. It really helps!
850029 tn?1238857820 Have you switched to a different antihistamine? I thought about doubling my dosage but that will cost me $60 a month on top of the nasal sprays etc. My doctor put me on it last year when I started breaking out in hives all over. I realized I had the fragrance allergy. I can control the fragrance part of it but had chronic sinus infections due to my other allergies after I took myself off it.
Avatar f tn If you are not confident about this Doctor then I would say get another opinion, hes your child... it does sound like allergy and this has been a bad year ..so take a second opinion ..zyrtec seems to be prescribed willy nilly ...he may need something different .
Avatar f tn I'm taking Zyrtec 10mg prescribed by my OB. My allergies are 100 times worse when i'm preggo. Check with your doctor but I had Zyrtec this pregnancy & Claritin with my first. I have to say Zyrtec works best!!!
Avatar f tn You can only take benedryl, nothing else.
Avatar n tn I asked for help on here a couple weeks ago for my alcohol intolerance/allergy. The first couple of times I ever drank I my forearms would swell up and break out in hives and itch very badly. I haven't gotten the hives in a while but my forearms still swell up and itch. Someone on here told me that I should take an antihistamine such a levocetrizine or cetrizine. I took 1 Zyrtec and I felt fine for a couple of hours but my arms eventually swelled up and started to itch again.
Avatar n tn could you have bed bugs in your house? other then that - it sounds like an allergic reaction to something...have you started eating anything new? different? any ingrediants changed? How about soaps and detergents? I was highly allergic to my bar soap but, it wouldn't bother me until 3pmm or so when your body temps are at the highest and I'd be all itchy...have you tried Zyrtec? It is now over the counter!!!!! ((just became OTC 2-3 weeks ago!
Avatar f tn Has anyone experienced severe itching problems when they stop taking Zyrtec?
