Antihistamine and thyroid

Common Questions and Answers about Antihistamine and thyroid


Avatar f tn That really made me think a lot about my condition. In case it is something related to water retention (I have hashimotos and take the thyroid hormone) or anything related to puffiness despite me not being overweight, is there any medicine for that or could that be an obstruction for any future eye surgery?
Avatar n tn We did have success through a doctor who runs a hyperbaric chamber and homeopathics. However, I've met two other people who continue to take antihistamine to prevent 'hives' and the cause has not been diagnosed.
Avatar f tn Diphenhydramine and promethazine both can induce psychosis.

Avatar f tn He is taking Prednisone. Finally an allergist did blood work and found his Thyroid Peroxidase was 80 and thyroglobulin antibodies were 411. Dr told him to follow up with more blood work in 1 week. He's in agony, he doesn't want to wait another week. I have some questions: 1) what do these results mean? 2) why is the Dr waiting? 3) what can be done to get these number down? 4) could these results be what is causing his symptoms? 5) Is it serious?
Avatar n tn I returned to my FNP and she put me on a different antihistamine and steroid pack, and said to give it two weeks, then maybe she would send me to an arthritis doctor. My big question is does snyone know of a correlation between throid problems and cold uticaria and if so, any hope of curing it? It is really bothering me, and I am afraid it may continue to elevate into more severe reactions. Any advise out there?
Avatar m tn My Thyroid has taken on an Itch Allergy now which goes if I put antihistamine cream on my neck where my thyroid is. I also take liquid antihistamine which helps with my throat. I do wonder if there is a correlation between Rapeseed and all these allergies. Rapeseed is grown all year round so for those who suffer all year round is it possible the link is Rapeseed?
519473 tn?1212068171 , and Feb.. The results of the bloodwork, suggest my thyroid is over produceing. T3 and T4 are high...and TSH is low. He discussed the results with my endocrinologist... and they decided to start me on 10 mg. of Tapazole. (2x/day), and increase my Toprol to 75 mg. That same bloodwork, also suggested I'm very Anemic, and we don't know yet what is causeing that. My question is... can the anemia be related to they thyroid issues... and are the headaches, as well.
Avatar f tn I experience generalized feelings of itching and burning with every form of thyroid supplementation. My allergies have gotten worse lately - experienced the same sensations with an antihistamine prescribed by an allergist. Anyone heard of anything like this and what to do? I need to take the thyroid medicine indefinitely.
Avatar n tn I had to wait 3 months to see and Endocrinologist, I went in and he informed that according to the blood test I am hyper-thyroid and is going to do a thyroid scan and blood test. I am 237lbs, I thought when your thyroid was hyper you were skinny? I am not sure what is going on with me, but this is no quality of life. I am misreable. I am a mother of four and have no energy to keep up, I work full time and by the time I get home I am exhausted and ready for bed. Please help me.
Avatar f tn I have also had variable orthostatic intolerance, muscle spasms, tremors, and fasciculations, widespread peripheral neuropathy, brain fog, hypoglycemic episodes (with LOW insulin levels), elevated LH and testosterone, allergy symptoms, and intermittent, severe, exercise induced vasomotor rhinitis that will not respond to any type of antihistamine. I also have GI symptoms with alternating constipation, diarrhea, and bloating.
Avatar f tn She was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism at the age of 3 months and receives a small daily dose of Eltroxin to supplement her own thyroid production. She recently had a very severe allergic reaction to some shellfish (prawns) that she ate. Her face swelled terribly and her left eye was swollen closed. She need antihistamine treatment to relieve the swelling. Could the allergy have anything to do with her condition or her treatment?
Avatar n tn Though plenty of people who don't have a thyroid condition also rely on Acid Reflux medication and Fiber. Perhaps when you get your thyroid leveled out, you will not need the other non-thyroid medication. Next time, press your Dr. for answers to all your questions and don't hesistate to ask them...or let him leave without getting them in;-) There will be a few women here who can help you out with this (I am searching, not diagnosed). Best to you!
Avatar f tn I had the same symptoms with inability to concentrate, (or feeling like I was in a box), cold hands and feet, palpitations and flutters in my chest with some anxiety. My TSH was 6.3 with normal thyroid panel results, otherwise. I am very healthy and athletic and it hit me 3 weeks ago. I was put on a low dose synthroid of 50 mcg and have taken it for 2 weeks. The strange thing is that my labs were repeated a week ago and I had a normal TSH level.
Avatar f tn There should be no problem at all taking a decongestant or an antihistamine if thyroid levels are normal and in balance. This is true even though the package insert says it should be avoided by people with a thyroid disease. A patient whose thyroid levels are too high will be oversensitive to decongestants. The combination of too much thyroid hormone and decongestants might cause even more tremors, more nervousness, and more shakiness. They might make the heart beat faster.
Avatar n tn Since you have never had the problem before, if the problem continues you need to see your doctor to determine the actual cause, ensure there isn't something else causing it and receive treatment if needed. You might want to try an antihistamine like Sudafed to see if it stops the problem. But be aware if your work requires random drug tests an antihistamine can cause you to fail it, so make sure you let the tester know you are taking it. I Hope This Helps Good Luck.
Avatar m tn I have a bottle of Unisom and the ingredient states it contains Diphenhydramine (An Antihistamine) not Doxylamine.
460348 tn?1213455922 I didn't feel good until just recently and I think that was due to a dosage change on my thyroid meds. I am due for a blood test so maybe I am leveled a bit. Go ahead and try the tylenol PM - it will not interfer this your thryoid meds. I really feel - and other may disagree - especially if you are symtomatically insomniac- taking your thyroid meds at night could pose a problem.
Avatar f tn Important Safety Information In animal studies, Victoza® caused thyroid tumors—including thyroid cancer—in some rats and mice. It is not known whether Victoza® causes thyroid tumors or a type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) in people which may be fatal if not detected and treated early. Do not use Victoza® if you or any of your family members have a history of MTC or if you have Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2).
Avatar n tn I think you are right, I have been off of the flonase for 4 days and although swelling in my face (moon shape) has decreased, my appetite has only slightly decreased. All and all I do feel much better with my reduction in medication and the swelling in my turbinates has significantly gone down too. I guess I'll have to try a little more self control.
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.

Avatar f tn I have taken hydo 10-650's for 15 years and 4 years ago i just started breaking out in hives, I have never felt an itch like this before, I WILL just dig holes in my arms, so I went to a dermatologist, my thyroids are down, I don't know yet if it is the narcotic or thyroid yet, nothing helps the itch except running wet wash cloths up and down my arms, I now have to go see and (sp) endocranalogist....
Avatar f tn Behold, she says it could absolutely be related to solumedrol and gave me Rx strrength antihistamine for night and OTC antihistamine for day (got to stay awake at work). She also said, and this is the part I don't like, if this approach doesn't work, she may have to put me on oral prednisone and back the steroids out of my system. So, now I'm 4 weeks out from the solumedrol treatment, still battling hives, but will continue to take the antihistamine and go back on steroids AS A LAST RESORT!
Avatar n tn Since you are having lethargy also, so anemia and liver disease need to be investigated thoroughly. Oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl can be used for itching. You should take a comfortably cool bath and wear smooth-textured cotton clothing. You should choose mild soaps without dyes or perfumes and use a mild, unscented laundry detergent when washing clothes, towels and bedding. Please take a second opinion from a dermatologist if the symptoms persist.
Avatar f tn Sinus infections are common with people with low thyroid. And seem to become less frequent or don't have problems with sinus after the thyroid levels are optimized for the person. My daughter has had and always had sinus problems. Got so bad and so chronic that she now I believe has permanent loss of sense of smell and not best sense of taste. Her grand mother, and mother have Hypo. I recently was able to get her to get a starter dose of Thyroid medicine.
