Antihistamine and heart

Common Questions and Answers about Antihistamine and heart


Avatar n tn if you have high blood pressure? I went to the doctor and I was given an antihistamine called Cetirizine. I told the doctor about my high blood pressure and he said that it wouldn't affect it. I looked at one website that said it did, and another that said it didn't. Would anyone know from their experience if it does or not?
Avatar m tn I am on currently on antihistamines and zantac and I got a steriod shot a month ago and took prednisone for 6 days all prescribed by an allergist. It is better than it was in the begining but anything I touch (desk, purse strap, clothes) causes me to get welts and then it breaks out into itchy bumps. Benadryl doesn't seem to help but I do sleep well when I take it. Someone mentioned H pylori so I'm wondering if I should see my GP. Thanks for the advice.
Avatar f tn I have allergies when ever there is a weather change and my heart flutters now and then, just wondering if anyone has this happen?
Avatar m tn I am patient of hypertension, allergic asthma, mild ischemic heart, anxiety and gallstone.
1415174 tn?1453246703 On Saturday my palms of my hands turned blue for about 15 seconds. I have gone to my GP and had a 12 lead ECG and the doctor said my ECG was normal and the heart sounds very strong. I understand a PVC (periventricular contraction) may not be seen on an ECG. I did see irregular heartbeat as a serious side effect of flexeril. I'm going again tomorrow to perhaps get off of flexeril and maybe get a monitor to take home. Has anyone had this happen to them when on Flexeril?
Avatar n tn Hi, Dayquil doesn’t contain any ingredients which can harm in any way. It doesn’t contain antihistamine which can cause sleepiness and it doesn’t contain pseudoephedrine which is now banned and instead contains phenylephrine for the nasal congestion. Hence, you can safely use it without any worry. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
Avatar m tn For some reason, though I could not fall and stay asleep. My heart was beating really hard and every time I fell asleep I woke back up immediately with my heart beating like mad and an extreme feeling of disorder. I tried for hours to go to sleep with no avail. It was somewhat similar to the way I was feeling back in September. I went the entire night without sleeping because of it.
Avatar f tn Balance your input and increase your output to lose weight and for healthy living. Monitor your heart rate and follow up with your physician if required. Take care!
Avatar f tn How exactly did an antihistamine work for you and was that before or after your surgery? What were your symptoms ? An antihistamine was suggested to me by my cardiologist in 2011 and again it made me drowsy until 1pm when taking before bed so I would take it periodically...most recently she said to try Allegra instead. I also have rx for Singulair. It is supposed to work in a different way ???
Avatar f tn Blood pressure was normal, and I felt fine but I didn't know why my heart rate was so high because I was sitting the entire day and even went to the doctors and I looked at my blood pressure/heart rate and my HR was 103 and my blood pressure was 123/93 I do not know if what I am experiencing is just the result of wearing my body down and being tired and taking stimulant medication around the clock or if this is something heart related that I should check into further.
Avatar n tn I sleep on my most acute ear and thought it must be coming just through the pillow reverberation, but I lifted my head and the sound became louder making me realize that I was hearing the heart sound coming to me from outside my own body. I repeated lifting my head several times and it did the same thing. With my head lifted, the sound finally faded and became inaudible. This episode took about one or two minutes. I have had three catheteritizations of my heart over the last 10 years.
Avatar f tn Walking long distances is good for you and relieves stress as well as calms the adrenal gland down that can create rapid thoughts and too much energy to go to sleep at your usual time. Could indicate heart problem if your heart is radcing when doing something quiet or can't walk far without being breathless for a short time. five minute walk your out of breath that indicates a problem Depending on your age (40 and over), you might consider getting a blood test.
Avatar m tn I asked my doctor if there was anything natural that would help my heart irregularities and he said he knew of some that would make it worse...that was my clue to stay away from herbs. On the pulse issue...I can see my pulse in my neck, my wrist and my abdomen. That used to freak me out, so I started watching to see if I could see my husband's and kid's, and sure can see it. I also feel my pulse everywhere...even the bottoms of my feet.
Avatar m tn This morning I took the biaxin at 6am. It's been about 8 hours and my heart has sped up from about 70 to 85-90 for about an hour and won't come down. I'm afraid to take my next dose of prednisone but I've been on short bursts before with no issue. Is a resting heart rate around 90 something to be worried about? I do have a history of general anxiety so I'm wondering if I'm just getting worked up. Any thoughts are appreciated.
Avatar n tn And next time, you can ask them to give corticosteroids beforehand, instead of the antihistamine, to try and lessen the reaction.
Avatar f tn I have one question and thought I would share my history and current experience with the triple therapy (Incivek, Interferon, and Ribavirin). I have been having rapid heart beat, and when I bend down or walk up a hill or stairs I get light-headed and my heart feels like it's beating fast. I gave these symptoms to my doctor, but he didn't believe that my lab results warranted any action at this time for those symptoms. Has anyone had similar symptoms? If so, how were your symptoms addressed?
Avatar n tn I started using medication due to high level of acid in stomach /reflux.. that caused my left lung and left side of my heart to fail. The medication was fine the first month and then I started having severe pain in my left side .. "liver area" which the liver started swelling..
Avatar n tn There's so little published about strep and hives, and I hope that my story may offer comfort to someone who goes through this. I also truly doubt that the steroid and antihistamine drugs, aside from the antibiotics, offered any help whatsoever to my condition -- although the epinephrin shot in the ER and breathing treatment did help my system endure the strongest phase of its reaction.
487969 tn?1249316891 Well, maybe the neck inflammation is also causing your low BP, perhaps via histamine that is released from basophils as part of some other associated autoimmunity. And when BP goes low, your body increases heart rate to compensate - to preserve the rate/pressure constant. (You are probably aware of the association between chronic urticaria and Hashimoto's, e.g.) What if you tried an antihistamine like diphenhydramine, just to see what happens to your BP and HR?
351404 tn?1299492730 Had an eczema with itching outbreak on forehead area and took a Benadryl antihistamine pill. Fine for 24 hours, then took another and that night had a three hour AFib episode. I remember about 20 years ago, I last took an antihistamine and got flutters. Is there a connection between AFib and antihistamine, ie have others an opinion or experience of this?
Avatar f tn My mother is 66 years old and she had got her heart bypass done. From the day one she has itching allover the body. When she informed the doctors they said all will get subsidised during the course of time. But still now, after 45 dyas the itching has not stopped. There are no rashes or dryness in the skin. Can you tell what could be the probable reasons for this and suggest some remedy.
1416390 tn?1333905204 The vet put her on heart medication and kept her on the antihistamine and says she has congestive heart failure :( Could the doubled heart be from the stress of the Baytril antibiotic? They did have her straining to pee with a huge need for water? Today was the first day without the Baytril and she seems to be feeling much better... no straining to pee or the great need for water. Please let me know of any wisdom you have!
Avatar f tn Attacks could last minutes or hours and any combination of symptoms would happen. And in between attacks, my heart would regularly do many strange things - tachy, brady, irregular rhythm, extremely forceful beats, 'flip-flopping' feelings, etc. I also sometimes experienced a sensation of the heart stopping and restarting - immediately after the restart I would feel a MASSIVE, uncomfortable surge of adrenaline and the heart would beat very fast for a little while.
Avatar n tn After about 4 weeks on the med, I developed generalized hives which required an antihistamine and prednisone to resolve. Currently I am not on any treatment for my Graves (it has been about two weeks) and my heart rate is beginning to increase (90's) and my anxiety is coming back. I was told propranolol is not an option for me because when I occasionally get bronchitis, I have mild reactive airway disease with it.
182493 tn?1348056515 For the last 4 years I’ve been using nutrition—Intravenous and oral—to rebuild and repair the biochemistry pathways in the body and mind. Over four years experience —this includes heroin, and all other street drugs, alcohol, and prescription medications--has taught me that natural detox works 100 times better than detox formulated and predicated by the use of other mind altering chemicals.
Avatar n tn It helps keep me going, as I do not feel any of the heart palpatations from my mitral valve prolapse, and the medication also keeps me more alert and less tired so that I do not feel as sluggish from my hypothyroidism. What, exactly, is the ingredient or main component in Claritin D that seems to mask the symptoms of the MVP? Is this medication safe for me to take daily with my MVP condition?
Avatar m tn Wondering if sometimes it might be anxiety to an older situation when it was anaphylactic shock. From what I hear anxiety and anaphylactic shock heart symptoms sound exactly the same and indistinguishable with out a blood pressure test on the onset of symptoms. This is really bad because it delays me from treating a real anaphylactic emergency because I question if it is anxiety. So I wait to see how bad it gets so I can be absolutely it is real.

Avatar f tn I have had two separate ablation therapy on my heart now and due to have another in October this year. I occasionally take tylenol pm for poor sleep and backache when I wake. Someone mentioned to me that the antihistamine in these tablets may cause some of the problem?
Avatar n tn Originally my grandmas heart beat was really low about 30, she was taken into the hospital and the dr. pernamently put a heart pacer in her. After that a day later they said they were going to relase her in a couple of days and she was completely fine laughing, smiling and communicating. Then the Doctors made a mistake by giving her a medication she was allergic to named Phenergan. They also made this same mistake in the past.
