Why take allegra d on an empty stomach

Common Questions and Answers about Why take allegra d on an empty stomach


Avatar m tn What I do know is L-Glutamine 2 or 3 x a day on an empty stomach does have a strong healing quality about it. Again these are my suggestions from what I am familiar with and I do believe there could very well be additional problems here, but this is what I know.
Avatar m tn The only other things I have going on that MAY be related, is an upper back pain/numbness... unknown cause. Been going on for years though. No diagnosis. So basically I'm out of ideas, and about to go insane. It's terrible at night not being able to sleep because of that feeling, and not being able to sleep with my girlfriend because I keep her awake with my constant moving around and itching...
Avatar f tn I'm trying to detox from effexor after being on it for several years with the last 7 months at 150 mg. After getting down to 37.5 every other day and feeling okay I stopped and started my new prescription, Wellbutrin-- well, for two days now I'm nauseous, shaky, hot/cold sweats, feel like my eyes are vibrating somewhat when I make too fast of motion with my head. It's as if I have symptoms of Vertigo and can't fix it.
Avatar n tn Having stopped Allegra-D, and begun taking Prevacid on an intermittent basis, the GERD has all but gone away, and the motility has improved. Endoscopy in 2 days - we'll see.
Avatar m tn I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
Avatar n tn I'm off it now, but I still have a finicky stomach (never did before, but it apparently hasn't fully recovered.) Acetaminophen is fine to take with an upset stomach, but nothing else is. I keep a bottle of Prilosec handy just in case things get wierd again, but I'll tell you, that stuff is too rich for my new health insurance and if ever I have to have it again it'll cost me another $50. When you're in serious pain though, you'll pay that and more.
Avatar m tn If you have one of the other forms of sinusitis, your doctor can take an x-ray of your head, and the infection may show up as an opaque area on the x-ray. Of course, you don’t really want to get an x-ray of your head unless you really have to, so it’s better to get a CAT scan of your sinuses, which is the more accurate way to diagnose the specific form of sinusitis that you are suffering from. Sometimes, however, you can have a sinus infection that won’t show up on a CAT scan of your sinuses.
Avatar m tn She put me on a antibiotic for 2 weeks and allegra-D. I never had a sinus infection until I went on the lexapro. I think there is a connection with all of this. Sinusitis is listed as one of the possible side effects of lexapro. All that I want is for these crickets to stop churping in my ears. Oh-I also started taking the vitamin supplement lipoflavinoid. The ENT Dr. gave me some samples, says it might help with the tinnitis, but she says she doesnt have much faith that it works.
Avatar n tn Debbie: thank you so much for all of your very helpful info!! I am now strongly considering going back and asking the Dr. to perscribe Elavil for me. If it works, than it must be shingles, right? (because I to have been convinced that it's somethaing gastrointestinal but they find nothing.) Would you mind answering a few more questions about the Elavil? -- Do you take the it as needed or on a regular daily basis? -- Again: how long before you experienced some releif from taking the Elavil?
Avatar n tn My ear/nose/throat, of course, laughs at this, convinced its my allergies, of which I have an allergy test appointment on Jan 10. All he has told me is to take some Claritin-D (which helped for a few days, but not anymore), cover my bed with hypoallergenic ****, and to wait and find out about my allergies, and then get the allergy shots. I also saw an acupuncturist who worked some magic for about 48 hours as well, but that was all.
Avatar n tn I had stones, which showed up on an ultrasound by a surgeon in his office. But as another person said, you could have a nonfunctioning gallbladder without stones, and to diagnose that you'd need a HIDA scan. But abdominal pain is notoriously difficult to diagnose, as many here on these boards are experiencing! I'm doing better after getting my gallbladder out, but still having days with discomfort and lack of appetite and difficulty putting weight on.
Avatar n tn I get them on my palms, tops and bottoms of my feet, stomach, face, neck, arms, legs, and even on my scalp. The strangest thing is that I am trying to get pregnant (with little success) so I started clomid and gonal f. I tell you that I didn't have a single hive the entire time I was on them (14 days). It was wonderful. Can't tell me that these things are "stress" when I didn't get them during one of the most stressful times I've had.
Avatar n tn I believe your symptoms could be due to an intolerance or allergy to wheat products; maybe other foods as well and that is why my physician put me on the diet I suggested earlier. Here's a helpful link: http://allergies.about.com/cs/gluten/f/blniaidceliac2.
Avatar n tn Take one dose per day, first thing in the morning on an empty stomach along with a B6. Try 1500mg and see how you feel. You can take up to 4000mgs but many find it works best at a more moderate dose. It will give you back your mental and physical energy. Do some aerobic exercise, too. Anything that gets your heart and breathing rate up like fast walking, jogging, bicycling, stairmaster, etc. I'd also suggest taking a mega-mineral supplement with lots of magnesium, zinc and phosphorous.
Avatar n tn The symptoms are back now and after doing some research, I am taking allergy medications (last year the allergy specialist told me I was allergic to practically everything and put me on several medications....Allegra in the AM, Singulair at night, Advair and Flonase as needed), the blood pressure medication, OTC medication for acid reflux (read that this might could cause it though I only have it maybe once a month), and taking the Ambien again at night.
Avatar n tn So, long story short, I did not take the Singular. I know have an appointment with the head ENT doctor at the hospital in my area, next week. I'll put up another post after I see him. Thanks for all your advice and concerns.
Avatar n tn She had a UTI and a upper respitory infection this past week and she is on an antibiotic so I thought this would take care of the problem but 5 days on the med. she is still doing this. Should I have the doctor do further tests on her?? I'm more concerned now because she hasnt been wanting to eat. She never was breast feed and I did take fertility to finally conceive her. I guess Im just tring to say Im just as concerned as this other mom. Please I f you find help let me know.
97615 tn?1212682189 I plan to also do some experiments with antihistimines (I've even read about Pepcid working), running in hot vs cold weather, and running on an empty stomach - to help determine triggers. Anyhow, I wanted to share my story for those with similar running-related itching, and also share the best links I found. For anyone with exercise-related hives, it seems important for you to distinguish between Cholinergic Urticaria and Exercise-Induced Anaphylaxis (EIA).
Avatar n tn Hi, Please remember not to exercise on an empty stomach and make sure to maintain hydration. A multivitamin supplement should help.
Avatar n tn nothing but PACs, i had a breathing test and all normal so why do i still feel the need to contstantly take a deep breath or yawn to get it. is this happening cuz i am thinking about it too much?? how many deep breaths a day is normal... if anyone has any advise please let me know and good luck volsy i hope we can get an answer...
Avatar n tn But once or twice a month, I sneeze uncontrollably, hundreds of times, all day long, and nothing, not Allegra-D, not Claritin, not Benadryl, will stop it. And the weird thing is, this sneezing is NOT accompanied by the usual itching. When I have a "sneezing day," I am nonfunctional. All events are canceled. It is absolutely exhausting. I sometimes wonder if it has anything to do with weather or barometric changes; it seems like it rains or there's a temp.
Avatar n tn However a person with severe uncontrolled acidity or when such a person is hungry or his stomach is empty except for the acid, he may feel dizzy. Also presence of an ulcer in the stomach or weak esophageal sphincter can complicate matter. I would recommend you to see a gastroenterologist (a specialist who looks after the diseases of our digestive system). The second possibility is that you have a TMJ disorder that precipitates dizziness once you start chewing. This is most likely cause.
436516 tn?1382388265 On the bottles of Prevacid from the pharmacy it doesn’t tell you to take it on an empty stomach to give it a chance to shut off the pumps. So for the last two weeks I’ve been taking it 30 to 60min before a meal. And guess what…..In the last two weeks I’ve hardly had any attacks, only minor ones and none while I’m sleeping. So this is something you may want to try if you take Prevacid or Prilosec since it’s not on the instructions (at least not with the national chain pharmacy I go to).
Avatar n tn Once you get an infection, all the bacteria,viruses,allergens,and toxins take on a life of their own. The cure is to get rid of the pustulence, with surgery--no way!--or advanced saline sinus flush. I got a Snot Demon for 7 yrs, teaching grade school/germ factory. A cold in the fall, then sinusitis, lost smell then taste, Cipro, hawk spit cough, sore throat, partial recovery in summer. Then I heard about a saline flush, like the one mentioned above.
Avatar n tn If I am eating something (especially salty foods) and swallow, if a grain of food gets on the area I start to cough. If I lay on my right side and have sinus drainage, I cough. I have an appointment with another ENT tomorrow and plan on crying, kicking and screaming to get something done because at this point everyone wants me to just keep using Nasonex and Allegra D which only makes the cough drier rather than helping.
Avatar m tn It's clear the problem is there's no bloodflow, but the question is why. I have noticed there seems to be two thing going on, not only does the internal penis shrink but the skin sometimes tightens up and I also get a sort of restriction just below the gland where it becomes even thinner. If it is in that state and I somehow manage to get an erection the tight skin remains squeezing the shaft at that point until I get a full erection and it disappears. Looks very odd.
Avatar n tn The smell is strong. I used to notice it about a half hour after taking my Allegra-D 12 hr. tablets, but now I smell it much more often. Am I going crazy or is there something to this I'm not aware of. Has anyone else experienced this? Please help?
Avatar n tn I noticed many people talking about taking Metformin BEFORE they eat to suppress appetite and then report stomach issues like vomiting. Metformin is very hard on your empty stomach and must be taken WITH food for that very reason. I wonder if eating something light and low calorie like carrots or something, and then taking the metformin, well before meals, would solve that problem?
Avatar n tn Also, the arches on each side of my uvula are uneven (one hangs really low, one is raised). I have an appointment on November 2nd with an ENT. However, in the meantime...I had a CT scan on my ribs for an unrelated issue. The tech scanned a little higher than required...which happened to be a good thing. She scanned my thyroid which showed nodules. I have been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. Not sure if that may be part of the issue as well.
