Zantac and benadryl together

Common Questions and Answers about Zantac and benadryl together


Avatar n tn I am currently on allegra and zantac when I first wake up, 2 doxepins mid-morning, two zyrtecs and another zantac after dinner and yet another 2 doxepin at bedtime. The hives are still breaking through despite all of this medicine. Frequently, I wake up with a swollen eye, or a fat lip. I am scared to death and sleep with an epi-pen on my night table. I pray and hope that maybe one day for me, they will just disappear.
Avatar f tn These are the big ones that don't itch as much as they hurt. I have taken Benadryl and Prilosec which is a histamine 2 antagonist. I have 10 mg Prednisone tabs with me but the directions are to take 40 mg for angioedema and gradually decrease dosage. I know that if I take this dosage I will be up all night but am really uncertain about how much I should take. Using Aveeno to sooth the welts with minimal effect. I empathize with anyone going through this experience.
Avatar m tn Every once in a while I will take 1 claritin and 1 zantac together but only if I am having a bad hive breakout. Usually once every few weeks if that.
Avatar n tn I have recently worked my way up to children's ibuprofen and that seems to help, but I took a zantac the other day and had the same awful reaction of sweating, seriously low blood pressure, vomitting and then went into chills. It's so scary. I had a little bit of anesthesia for an endoscopy and the nurse said I was the first person in 30 years to throw up like I did.
Avatar f tn I have seen a Dermatologist who says I need to accept the fact that I will not know what is causing the hives and to treat the hives (allegra and zantac) I have seen the Allergist who wants to check for an autoimmune disease which I don't understand because Hashimotos is an autoimmune disease or problem I thought. My thyroid doctor says there is no link between the thyroid and the hives and has taken a leave of abscence from his practice.
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 do not sleep around, nor have i had many sex partners, so i am wondering how the hell did i get herpes. my boyfriend and i are always together, so i hope this man has not cheated on me and brought something back to me. he has no symptoms of herpes, nor does he have these fissures. however, i will take the advise of a someone who posted their comment, how their doctor prescriped clobetosol cream .5%. i actuall use clobestol on my eczema that is on my hands and fingers.
Avatar n tn The foul, sulfuric rotten egg/bad red wine burps and flatulence (and diarrhea) are mortifying. I have studied the entire human body (in my profession), and have close friendships with several internists. However, I have no health insurance. Based on what I've studied and have been told, the most likely culprits are gastroparesis (very slow emptying of the stomach) OR gall bladder disease.
Avatar n tn He is still scratching and bleeding, but he is doing MUCH better (50%) just on Zithromax so we believe most of the severity was a secondary infection even though we were using tea tree oil, neo and polysporin, and bleach baths (1/4 cup in whole tub for antifungal antibacterial effect). We are weaning him off prednisone and added Zantac which our doc says is a histamine blocker that blocks what Atarax doesnt. We just started so we have not noticed a benefit yet with it.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar m tn I'm a stay at home mom with a similar (but not exact) experience to your daughter, so take my suggestion for what it's worth. I had chronic hives since childhood. It was undiagnosed until my 20s. My new allergist said people with dermagraphism (my form of chronic hives) was frequently a side symptom of an auto-immune disease. He tested me for 6 different ones, and I came back positive for Hashimotos (my immune system attacks my thyroid).
Avatar m tn I had done both before without incidents. I used Benadryl together with Zantac for relief. Now, I am down to one outbreak a day after I get up in the morning before eating anything. I take my two medications and I am OK till the next morning when I get up. Then I start all over again.
Avatar f tn The allergist said stay on the Benadryl, but also take daily loratadine (10mg), Xyzal (levocitirizine, 5mg), Singulair(Montelukast Sodium, 10 mg), the prednisone, and Zantac to calm the stomach from the drugs and it also has an antihistamine in it, and use the albuterol inhaler when needed. And to gradually reduce the Benadryl (which is mind numbing).

Avatar n tn So I went back in and they gave me an IV of benadryl, zantac, and steroids. The swelling went down and I went home. This morning (Saturday) I woke up with both eyes really itchy. I have continued the zantac, benadryl and steroids along with my usual zyrtec and now it is Saturday evening and my eyes are even worse - really welted and pink and yellow underneath and my eyelids are also itchy.
Avatar f tn My daughter was diagnosed with allergies 07/01/2008 with allergies to mold, cats, dogs, pollen, trees, dust mites, etc. She started with Extendryl, now have added Singulair and today Zantac for welts. Her allergies manifest in her skin. 6 months ago we thought she was austic because she only said 50 words (she turned 3 this September) and now she is much better. Go to a pediatric allergist.
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.
Avatar m tn In addition to 4 Epi-pens I carry claritin reditabs, primatene mist, Prednisone, and Benedryl liquid caplets. I also take, daily by prescription, H1 and H2 blockers (Zantac, doxipen, Singular, Claritin x4, & Hydroxizyne), these meds have helped tremendously to keep the episodes down to only a few a year! Keep your head up, it does get better with time, patients, great doctors and great support.
Avatar n tn Has anyone been able to heal their duodonal ulcers with Zantac and if so, how large was your dosage? Side effects? I realize I'm about 15 years older than last time I used Zantac so side effects may get me this time but it's something I've at least had success with in the past. these PPIs are about to kill me.
Avatar dr m tn Nitric oxide is lethal to bacteria and viruses and is also known to increase oxygen absorption in your lungs from 10-25 percent. This is why it's important to inhale through your nose, especially when you are exercising. Your smell and taste buds are connected. If you can't breathe well through your nose, then your sense of smell will suffer, which means that your sense of taste will be altered as well. This can lead to appetite and weight issues.
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 n tn A year later, I had extensive reconstructive surgery (thanks to a bad delivery 17 years before that should have been a C-section) along with a vaginal hysterectomy. Once again, I developed the hives and itching. They were controllable with Benadryl and Zantac, and the symptoms lasted for 4 weeks until the sutures had completely dissolved. (My surgeon was supportive and helpful in our discussions on this matter).
Avatar n tn I plan on taking an extra Clonopin and Benadryl......
Avatar n tn I had them about 7 years ago, they lasted about a year. I'm taking Zyrtec (once a day), Zantac (2 / day), Doxepin (150 mg @ bedtime), and Benadryl as needed. I had been on prednisone on and off since July but my doctor has taken me off of it (for obvious reasons). Unfortunately nothing I've taken other than prednisone has worked. My hives are particularly associated with pressure (underwear) - Since September i have worn a tank top under my clothes due to hives associated with wearing a bra.
Avatar n tn My son is also having a similar reaction, after 7 days of Amox. and 1 day on Keflex. Even though I'm giving Benadryl he is still reacting once the Benadryl wears off. He's on Z-pak now & I have my fingers crossed that the hives will stop. My Dr. said it may get worse before it gets better...I guess it is doing just that. Hope your baby is better soon!
Avatar m tn 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. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi and welcome to Part 50! Wow part 50. Please make yourself at home. Snuggle down. It'll be a bumpy ride but I know you Tramadol Warrirors can do it!

97615 tn?1212682189 I tried benadryl and claritin and those didn't work. Last summer I was on Allegra and it was wonderful for 6 months then stopped working. I just recently started doubling the allergra dose, but it is not working. I am sooo sick of not being able to excercise. I will get in great shape and then I can't work out for weeks and have to start all over again! My doctor told me that certain people react to antihistmines differently than others, so maybe try all.
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.
