Xyzal and hair loss

Common Questions and Answers about Xyzal and hair loss


Avatar n tn yesterday my dosage was increased to 75 mcg. I wanted to know if the hair loss/itching and burning scalp is a symptom of Hashimoto's, and if it is, will it ever stop? I was prescribed Xyzal 5mg for the itching, but it does not work. I have been concerned with further hair loss as a side effect of synthroid, and was wondering if it is possible to treat Hashimoto's with just cytomel. I would be so grateful if you could give me some insight and advice to my problems...
Avatar n tn The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue. It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned.

Avatar n tn I went to the doctor and he told me I was allergic to my pets. My house is so clean there is not one ounze of dog or cat hair and my car is clean also. I starting taking nasacort, sudafed and he gave me an inhaler. Nothing works. I have shortness of breath, I can't hardly breath. I am so depressed and tired I can hardly go to work . I am experiencing the same things as you.
636562 tn?1223671045 I have seen 4 Allergists and 3 of them said I had the most allergies they've ever seen. Previously I have been on Cingulair, Zyrtec (and later Xyzal), Albuterol, and Flonase for my allergies and asthma......due to my ADD and other random factors....I have a hard time staying on my meds. Starting in mid-September my hair suddently began falling out and continued to fall out until just a few weeks ago when it stopped.
Avatar m tn Thanks. I did go for a MRI a few months back and it did not reveal any tumors. The report said: "An axial flair and T2 weighted sequence was obtained. A coronal flair sequence was obtained. A T1 weighted sagittal sequence was performed. A post contrast series was obtained. The FLAIR coronal sequence demonstrates an area of gliosis within the parahippocampal gyrus. There is also an increase in the signal intensity within the fusiform gyrus on the right side.
Avatar n tn Hello, my mom was allergic to the components in her knee replacements. She ended up having them removed and redoing the replacement with titanium so that all the symptons would go away hopefully. They did, not even an hour after the surgery her hives,redness,everything was gone.The doctors will tell you that your not allergic to the replacement. But, my mom was within an hour after surgery. red all over,fever. have an allergist do a skin and patch test for metals & cement.
Avatar f tn It is 4 a.m. and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
535089 tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
Avatar m tn Hair Loss DPERRY - Did you get used to the wigs at all? Mostly at first I copied my hair pretty well so nobody really noticed - day blonde, one day red, one day brunette - curly, straight, funky..... I tried to put some streaks in my hair last night and well - let's just say virgin hair didn't react the same way my old beat up hair did. I ended up looking like the red headed step child of David Caruso and Carrott Top...back to the pharmacy for some color...and back to my wigs!
648155 tn?1238200957 Most of those areas have not depigmented, so i wonder what is really going on. I was prescribed Xyzal antihisthamine for the itching, and Vanos topical cream for the areas. I just read yesterday that VAnos should only be taken for two weeks and I have been using it almost daily for about 4-5 months. i also have bad facial hair...some dark, some which lacks pigment, but all of it is course (yuck) In the past several months i have noticed SIGNIFICANT hair loss, and can see my scalp.
1457077 tn?1297225907 I have missed 2 weeks of work last fall because I can't stand to wear clothing against my body when my outbreaks are bad. Evenings are the worst. The itching, burning, swelling and aching is sometimes unbearable for me and I have had suicidal thoughts while laying awake at night unable to sleep b/c of hives. I see an allergist who is very knowledgeable of Dr. Alan Kaplan's suggestions, and also a dermatologist. I have even been to UC Davis and seen Dr.
530191 tn?1214166411 For a few weeks now I have woken up with hives on my legs, arms, stomach, and so on. I've tried zyrtec and claritin and neither has really helped. Xyzal seems to work the best. The keep putting me on prednisone, because it is the only thing that will make the hives go away.....I am younger then most of you as I am in middle is so frustrating because I am missing so much school.....any advice???
176741 tn?1295237589 It itchs like crazy and I was just diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and weight gain, I have noticed minimal hair loss but a small amount and also purple dots on my upper right arm and some muscle fatigue and general fatigue every day at 3 pm I crash hard usually. Did anyone find relief form the itching or get weight gain with hyperthyroidism undercontrol? and yes I mean HYPER thyroidism. I get all the draw backs with none of the perks.
Avatar n tn Sometimes they are red splotches on my skin, other times they are thick welts, both itch unreal. My eyes, lips and feet swell also. My eyes and lips swell till I look like someone has beat me...Any sugestions???
Avatar n tn Prednisone is a drug no one should use the reactions can be long term,My hives arrived Mid May and I am trying to do my own research,Anti Histimines made me ill and I was also given a steroid topical cream, then my hair started to come out. I have stopped that and the Hair loss stopped aswell.I think they are advised by the drug companys to give Xanax and Lexapro, Xanax is addictive so then they switch to Lexapro, which is given for Depression,.
Avatar m tn Sometimes my feet swelled so much I could barely walk. I live in The Bahamas and the local doctors here were at a loss to deal with it and the antihistimines were useless after a few days. Then I saw a specialist in Canada who was doing a study and suggested I try Xolair. Like magic the hives went away for up to 90 days at a time. I pay $540 per shot as a co pay. The total cost is $1800. I just got a shot this evening....
Avatar n tn My body was determined to sweat, and sweat it did. I was always washing clothes, washing my hair, washing bedding. The sweats always came on in the 2nd half of the night (early morning) And I was not too hot when they happened. They seemed to happen sometimes if I didn't wear enough in bed and it was a cold night! (go figure THAT one out!) Strangely enough I got fewer of these night sweats at menopause !! Oh yes I got the hot flashes about 7 or 8 of them a day.
Avatar f tn Thinning of the hair, not balding, but i have noticed quite a change in the thickness of my hair and the loss of hair when i wash it. On and off headaches.. sometimes really sharp. A few months back i had severe abdominal/tummy pain for weeks and alot of gas but that has now gone, thank goodness! I used to have alot of anxiety.. which seems to have subsided as well. (fingers cross that never comes back!!) However i do think that stems from other things. Seasonal asthma too...
665881 tn?1248930597 I do have nerve damage in my spine from a epidural 34yrs ago and the result of that was the loss of the use of one leg for about 2 weeks and have suffered since but this sting has only developed in the past couple of years or so and as I said on my right side. I had a Melanoma removed about 16yrs ago, could a nerve have finally 'given out'?. Would be great to know if anyone finds a answer to this as my doctor is stumped as well.
436516 tn?1382388265 Other symptoms that people have (but not necessarily) are fever, weakness and fatigue, pain in the joints, pain in the chest and shortness of breath (causing asthma misdiagnoses) and loss of appetite. Depending on where the lumps are located, you could also have calcium deposits somewhere (I have one on my foot and one on my knee), liver inflamation or kidney issues. According to an article I read, it's rarely diagnosed properly because of a couple of reasons.
Avatar n tn It would leak a clear fluid, then get flakey and crusty, which was particularly gross as it would get on my hair. It was itchy, painful, and embarrassing as it was visible any time I put my hair up, which was a constant necessity as I was an athlete. I endured it for years, trying many different topical creams prescribed to me. One day, in my sophomore year of college, I sat at my desk trying to stop the "weeping" with a paper towel.
Avatar n tn here i for the last 6 months i have had itchy eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
288415 tn?1231634102 I have done the vinegar drops and the hair dryer into the ear. Nothing has given me more than very temporary relief. I just stumbled across this site that looks to have a potential diagnosis/solution. ( They call it Chronic Eczematous External Otitis and recommend prescription ear drops called DermOtic Oil. I have no idea how good the info is, but I'm going to check it out.
Avatar n tn wait there is double vision and loss of muscle strength but I personally write that off as being so tired from lack of sleep and overdosing of benedryl. Good luck everyone and I hope God blesses you with a good night sleep.
Avatar n tn When it happened on my lip, it swelled to the size of a grape and the Benadryl took FOREVER to kick in. Anyway, I went to the doctor this morning and she said swelling like this (tongue, lips) is called angiodema. She said if I continue to expose myself to this allergen (whatever it may be) the next stage could be anaphylaxis. I'm really scared. I have 2 little kids and I'm terrified of something happening. I can't avoid the allergen if I don't know what it is.:( Please help.
Avatar n tn is doing it cause of my loss of smell and taste - he said a tumor could affect nerves that control smell - but he doubts I have a tumor - how nice! He also hadn't heard too much of my smell problem although he came up with the name right away - how strange. After having had this smell for quite a while and the sinus problem along with it - and lack of taste and smell -I can honestly say I think they are all clearing up - the smell is no longer constant -although quite strong at times.
