Common Questions and Answers about Singulair benadryl


Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. No known interactions occur between singulair and benadryl, so you could give it as convenient, say one hour apart. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
4178478 tn?1350670964 I take Zyrtec for my allergies and Singulair as needed. But Singulair is a script.
4528327 tn?1355945592 I am on Allegra, Pepcid, Claritin, Benadryl (quick relief drug), prednisone 40 mg for 3 weeks so far, singulair, albuterol nebulizer, history of asthma. This CU stared after my anaphylactic reaction from walnuts in October 3rd...prior history-Perfect Health!!!! And Healthy!!! And an Athelete!!! Although, I Do have Herpes Simplex II.
Avatar n tn This is important, since I have MCS. With my insurance, I can't get Singulair. I'm taking prescription strength Benadryl, the generic, which still isn't covered by my insurance, eventhough I still buy it from the pharmacy. It's still cheaper to buy it this way than it is to try to buy everything completely over-the-counter. I've never tried Singulair. I've used Zyrtec, which is now available OTC, but affordability is still an issue.
Avatar n tn I suffered with allergies/asthma horribly while pregnant and I was prescribed Zyrtec, but I too was weary about taking it. My Dr. told me that Benadryl had been around longer and it was completely safe to take so I went with that. I took benadryl everyday of my pregnancy starting at about 10 weeks and my baby was born healthy!
Avatar m tn The so called second generation anti-histamines (Zyrtec, Allegra, Claritin) are better at not causing drowsiness, as they do not cross into the central nervous system as easily as the first generation anti-histamines (Benadryl). If your allergies are bad year round, talk to your doctor and ask if Singulair (Montelukast) can be added to your drug regimen. The two drugs tend to work great when taken in combination at night.
Avatar f tn I was on symbicort but that made me to anxious. Singulair made me too anxious too. My daughter takes singulair every night and still has asthma and allergies flare ups. Veramyst nasal spray works best for me and nasonex is ok. I don't know which antihistamine medicine works best, I've tried them all too and they all have a side effect,.
161427 tn?1229914882 I am 17 wks and started taking it alast week. Also what to you think about benadryl pseudoephedrine?
Avatar m tn Hi, Itchy bumps on the skin after or during an attack of cold could be due to allergy either to change in the environment or to use of singulair. Usually hives or wheals or urticaria occurs due to unknown reason, but in certain cases allergy plays the role. Treatment comprises of antihistamines like cetrizine and for itching benadryl helps. If there severe reaction then epinephrine, corticosteroids oral and topical can be employed under medical supervision. Hope this helps. Best.
Avatar n tn This is my 2nd pregnancy and I've taken my singulair and zyrtec every day for years. My dd is absoltutely healthy and my dr said it's better to be on the drugs than be sick for 9 months!
Avatar f tn He put me on a low dose of steriods at first, eventually moving up to 80 mg a day just to keep me out of the emergency room (anaphylatic). I also had to take 12 Benadryl a day to control the symtoms. Needless to say, my life came to a screeching halt. Even if I could control it, I was so tired all I wanted to do was sleep. We tried about every allergy med out there and finally he saw that my TSH was low. Off I went to an endo and she diagnosed me with Hashimoto's.
Avatar n tn I believe that Benadryl is contradicted for long-term usage in children. I recall my allergist stating that some studies show decrease in school and learning bcz of the drowsiness. Perhaps his doc will switch to Clariten on a trial and add Singulair to the mix to see if maybe that helps ???? Cannot hurt if it's this bad if the Doc agrees a trial. ??? I'm not familiar with Atarax ... really crazy ? here ... does he itch w/o these meds and/or did the intro of one or the other increase it ?
Avatar n tn I have tried benadryl, claritin 24 hrs tablets, zyrtec (also 24 hr tablet), nasal spray (some kind of anticholinergic solution), Singulair and phenylephrine so far. Benadryl doesn't really work for me anymore and claritin and zyrtec are effective for only half the day. I took 2 tablets one day (about 4 hrs apart) and became very drowsy and felt like I was in a fog the whole day.
Avatar f tn What antihistamines have you used? It wasn't an antihistamine with a decongestant or Benadryl was it? Singulair can be used for Allergic Rhinitis like you have, however, this is usually prescribed for someone with Asthma issues secondary to Allergic Rhinitis. What nasal steroid are you using? Most of them can be used long term.
Avatar n tn I know it will improve after a hard freeze , but in the mean time what can I use to at least open my throat? I take benadryl, singulair, entex pse, (which after many trials and tribulations give me the best results). I was using Foradil, with not much change in anything. I am very sensitive to most chemicals including prescription drugs.
709834 tn?1229198124 I've recently started using Advair and Singulair, and now my lower lip is twitching. It has never done this before, but I do occasionally get eye twitches. My lower lip also feels numb, and a few months ago, I guess due to my allergies, my lips and eyes swelled up and I looked ridiculous until I got a shot from the doctor and was told to take Benadryl if it happened again. Do you think my lip is twitching as a side effect of Advair and Singular?
Avatar f tn I tried to go the first couple of weeks without any meds... in spring.... couldn't do it! I was miserable. Benadryl is always ok, and my doctor said ok to taking Singulair (that is what I took prior to conceiving) I use my inhaler as needed (once a week maybe) What did you take for allergies and asthma prior to being pregnant? Good luck.
6983197 tn?1386720701 and I've even taken her to the ER at children's. she had both topical and oral steroids, antibiotics, benadryl, claritin, zyrtec, singulair, in many combinations. with no relief. we have changed, soaps & fabrics many times, avoided certain foods. nothing in helping! This "rash" is painfull and itchy. dry, swollen, covers almost her entire body. the pic attached is of her ankle. yes it looks brused in person too. her stomach is more of a pimplie rash.
Avatar n tn No one can figure out what it is. I have taken everything from Benadryl, Xyzal, Zrytec, Singulair, Claritin, and Hydroxyzine. Nothing has worked. They have done blood work for lupus and many other blood tests. All came back negative. They have started taking me off one drug at a time, now I am only on Xyzal, Singulair and 2 Hydroxyzine HCL 25 daily. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I could do or suggest what my doctor may need to test for. The only known allergy I have is fish.
Avatar n tn My allergist - immunologist has attempted to block the leukotrienes, the things that get to the skin that causes the burning sensation with Singulair 4 xs a day with Zyflo CR, I can't take the Zyflo CR, because these meds effect some peoples emotions incl. me apparently.... but taking the higher dose of Singulair has brought some relief.... I'm not a doc but I've been to many trying to get mystery burning of the skin and rashes figured out incl.
219039 tn?1189759421 Is it ok to take Benadryl allergy pill while pregnant? what if have runny nose and swallow snot, does that go to the baby? is it harmful?
Avatar m tn He or she may recommend over-the-counter medications such as Benadryl or prescription medicines such as a daily nasal steroid or a leukotriene inhibitor, such as Singulair (montelukast sodium). Medications can control symptoms, but allergy shots -- if they work in your case -- are a more lasting solution. The AAAAI offers a specialty search service available under the "Find an Allergist" tab on its Web site ( Ref:
Avatar n tn Veramyst Symbicort (2 puffs BID) Albuterol rescue inhaler (2 puffs PRN) Singulair 10 mg SID PM 20mg Buspar for GAD 60 mg Adderall for ADD Birthcontrol *** And anywhere from 4-8 Benadryl for PRN allergy symptoms to get through workday. **** I worked for the company on no allergy meds for 4-5 months prior to testing, but now I can't make it through the day without loads of meds that don;t feel like they do the trick. What's changed?
Avatar n tn My husband hasnt been affected. Is Benadryl affective? I have an appointment in Feb. to the dermatologist. My job is stressful, but the hives occur even when I dont have to go to work. Im concerned, any suggestions?
177465 tn?1288242063 When jonathan reacted to Amoxicillin they gave him benadryl and he was wired for hours! My husband even hears the word benadryl and he passes out! Definitely talk to your doctor. It is cold and flu season, but it could be allergies as well. He/she can help you find the safest medication to alleviate your symptoms.
Avatar f tn Ck with the dr for use of Zyrtec instead maybe? At what age will they allow Singulair for treatment of allergies. Environmental i assume? C~!
Avatar n tn I went and seen a doctor about this and was told I have allergies, I was perscribed the generic for singulair for 10 days, and zyrtec for about 2 weeks to see if I got better. I opted to take the medicine at night (tonight)...and i can't sleep and my throat is so dry even after water. I really dis like medicine...I get anxious...what are some other options to feel better?... HELP!
Avatar n tn Cannot get an appointment with gastroenterologist until May 27 (Allergist is currently coordinating treatment). Currently on Allegra, Zyrtec, Singulair, Doxepin, and Colchicine for hives, Wellbutrin & Topamax for bipolar disorder. Previously on prednisone, up to 80mg/day for 2 weeks, with no relief in symptoms.
Avatar f tn My doctor told me not to take Zyrtec!!! (but said that Benadryl is ok, if necessary) Benadryl just makes me REALLY tired...and my DH doesn't think that it is a good idea for me to take too much of any medication (he also doesnt have allergies and doesn't TRULY understand my suffering!) This is our first child and he is very/overly protective... The good thing is : I showed him all your posts, and I think he realizes that many people take allergy medicines while pregnant!
