Antihistamine drugs interactions

Common Questions and Answers about Antihistamine drugs interactions


Avatar n tn One thing that doesnt necessarily interact w/paxil, but will affect your absorption rates is bicarbonate of soda. A lot of these drugs have fuood interactions that doctors dont even realise. They do the best they can, but no doctor could ever keep up w/every med on the market. Yer best bet is to make friends w/yer local pharmacist. And read up on it yourself! I and my brother both have been on various diffferent meds most of our lives, and i have learned this well.
Avatar f tn Alot of other symtoms I have been having might be explained by possibly being allergic to advil and or interactions of the 2 drugs. Big issue....cannot lose weight no matter how hard I try. One more situation that I am confident I can fix removing myself from my medications. Keep in mind I did talk with my doctor to let her know what I wanted to do and she is on board. Any thoughts or words of wisdom is appreciated!
Avatar n tn Hi, Claritin is a antihistamine used in treating allergy symptoms, while prednisolone is a steroid. There are no reported interactions between these two drugs on concomitant use of these drugs. Use of drugs like erythromycin, ketoconazole, amiodarone and cimetidine with Claritin should be used with caution as they inhibit the elimination of Claritin and increase it’s activity. Hope this helps. Best.
1322157 tn?1279660281 , of the School of Nursing at the University of Rochester Medical Center, an expert on drug interactions, explains that grapefruit juice is one of the foods most likely to cause problems with drugs, because it is metabolized by the same enzyme in the liver that breaks down many drugs. The cytochrome P-450 3A4 enzyme breaks down grapefruit juice into useful components for body, just like it breaks down dozens of medications.
Avatar n tn The night time cold medications are only combinations of either Tylenol or Ibuprofene (nsaid) and anti-histamines, which help you sleep by making you drowsey, but you can avoid the nsaid, by just taking a 25mg of Benadryl, which contains 25mg of antihistamine and a little Acetaminophen, the same ingredient of Tylenol. You can check interactions and side effects of drugs at www.drugs.
Avatar f tn Just because they are natural does not mean they can be safe with other interactions with other drugs, no matter how harmless. Second, when you have a stress induced or as with me, stresses induced a manic depression, the naturals, no matter how great during the regular times is completely ineffective but for the sleeping, on controling the disorders problem. I am at three months now, husband had accident, bad and no surgery yet, mother died in my arms, one daughter is not speaking to me.
Avatar f tn I wonder if any of the meds are causing a reverse reaction to sleep instead of the drowsiness they usually cause. I checked drug interactions and it says that Trazadone and Zoloft have major interactions, & trazadone and vistaril have moderate interactions. I imagine for that it's because of inducing drowsiness & what you said about competing for the same receptor sites etc.
142526 tn?1397094272 Humm I didnt find it with the link alll I got was "Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist. " I was able to search for it and did find it that way Grapefruit juice: Dangerous medication interactions But I don't see anything about Sovaldi.

Some of the new drugs, Incivex as an example, applify other drugs...up to 75 fold...meaning some of the side effect drugs you may be given will get rid of your side effects...because they will KILL you. Any drug which hogs all the bandwidth as some of these chemo drugs do, can cause other drugs to not clear, or be applified to the point of one dose being fatal. http://www.medhelp.
574118 tn?1305138884 Seraquell is also a mood stabilizer.
12832842 tn?1448732401 I would ask a pharmacist about possible interactions with NyQuil. Perhaps a short term course of zopiclone (prescribed) would be helpful to you as your body adjusts to your new treatment. If side effects really aren't tolerable, let your neurologist now.
Avatar f tn Calling his findings merely the “tip of the iceberg,” Bailey expressed confidence that more research will reveal more interactions between drugs and the liquids they are taken with.
685562 tn?1447158831 Also, her knowing that I take Klonopin, and that I might Have a few left, never said anything about the SEVERE interactions between antihistamine and benzodiazapines, like DEATH! And to top it off, she said "I know what your going through, my 2 sons have ADD, ones on ADDERAL and ones on ridalin, and it was hard for them at first too"????? THEN SHE KNOWS SOMETIMES A PERSON NEEDS A "narcotic" FOR MEDICINE.
Avatar f tn Interactions between your selected drugs prednisone ↔ telaprevir Applies to: prednisone, Incivek (telaprevir) GENERALLY AVOID: Coadministration with telaprevir may increase the plasma concentrations of systemic corticosteroids. The mechanism involves telaprevir inhibition of CYP450 3A4, the isoenzyme primarily responsible for the metabolic clearance of most steroids.

Avatar f tn I don't remember the study well enough to say if that reaction is due to slow metabolism or medication interactions. Apparently there are a lot of side effects and drug interactions with demerol and there are better medications available now. Many years ago I was given oral demerol for post-op pain management following shoulder surgery. I had a Mumford procedure which involves cutting off the last inch or so of the collar bone where it inserts into the shoulder joint.
Avatar f tn This does not mean that ALL dysautonomia patients cannot safely take benadryl (or other drugs in this class such as phenergan/promethazine), but that there is a high rate of adverse and in rare cases even dangerous interactions between drugs in this class and the abnormalities of autonomic dysfunction. Whether or not it will affect a particular person is sort of a craps shoot.
Avatar f tn But the benefit of the story is that there must exist like hummingbirdT said a substitute to man made drugs somewhere there. The indians have old meds as well as the chinese, I don't know ... acupuncture, etc..pdocs in the west always disagree to this opinion. simply because they make a good living out of their pts illness. Of course I am not insunuating that one should stop his med and revert to these methods but I suppose one shouldn't close the door to this trend of techniques. WHO KNOWS.
996830 tn?1252173604 well make sure it doesnt have interactions with anything else you may be taking (are you still taking adderall? I dont know if you can take that along with xanax) I was presuming you had an RX for the xanax and that was bad on my part to assume. Just be safe and make sure it doesnt interact with anything else youre taking..
731160 tn?1297275908 I now take Zopiclone (probably called something different if you are not from the UK) this is a non addictive sleeping tablet. I've also been told that an antihistamine can help with sleep. I am attending a sleep health clinic on Weds so I shall share any nuggets of wisdom I may pick up there.
Avatar f tn All of you with itching caused by these or any drugs (and/or foods for that matter) PLEASE pay attention to your body's reaction...a little topical itching is one thing. But... as a rule of thumb, if you are itching on the outside, what is it doing to you on the inside?? A true allergic reaction can be life threatening. Sorry--the nurse in me just had to say that. And...Best of luck with your pain management!
317787 tn?1473362051 After thinking about this all day I also realize that the nausea was very bad so they put me on anti nausea, then the itching became unbearable (benedryl did not help) I got two or three drugs for that. Very dry mouth, fever blisters, canker sore, maybe the dry mouth added to it. Right before stopping Incivek I was producing no saliva at all.
471113 tn?1245112420 Ask about tylenol as well as any interactions meds you are currently on may have with tx/rescue drugs. Will they do baseline tests before starting tx??? Who teaches u to administer the shots? When is the first appt after starting tx? Eye exam before treatment? Very important apparently. Get copies of all labs. That's it. Just having this in my hand for the first appt really helped keep me focused and led our discussion. I brought it with me to my family doc also.
1571878 tn?1354953383 And when you THINK you're having a blast going to school and work still tripping, you are actually taking a sledgehammer to your life, creating cracks in the foundation and chipping away, until you realize that it has crumbled and there's very little left. Negative interactions with colleagues, friends, guys, and my family all became excuses to use. I would chug a bottle in less than 3 minutes.
200956 tn?1425595139 Systemic corticosteroids are contraindicated given the potential for drug-drug interactions with telaprevir. For severe rash, the management approach is to discontinue telaprevir, continue peginterferon/ribavirin, and monitor patients closely over the course of 7 days. If the rash does not improve or worsens, consideration should be given to discontinuing ribavirin and/or peginterferon.
Avatar n tn Laaz, Have you tried the antihistamine nasal spray called Astelin? It is apparently FDA approved for vasomotor rhinitis.
Avatar n tn Are there side effects or drug interactions. I have ordered some online and it should be here in a week or two. I am willing to try anything that will treat the chronic pain, depression and obsession to use drugs.
Avatar n tn With in sec it started all over again. They check the drug interactions of celexa from the meds I was given in the ER and He was able to quickly diagnos me with possible serotnin syndrome. I was treated with IV metoprolol for the high blood pressure and heartrate and given ativan to help keep me relaxed while we waited it out. I also had hyperreflexia as well. later that night it happened again not as severe and the ativan was repeated.
Avatar n tn Hi, gyps is right - allergy to eggs can cause an allergy reaction - flu vaccine does have egg as one of the constituent. You should try some OTC antihistamine medications and apply local calamine lotion and see if the lesions respond. It would be advisable to consult an allergy specialist for your symptoms. Let us know if you have any doubts. Hope this helps. Good luck.
Avatar f tn and that's the difference with the other drugs you have mentioned. However I am not a pharmacist and that is who I think you should consult. You're welcome and good luck. We're here if you need us.
