Common Questions and Answers about Zyrtec and anxiety


Avatar f tn   I have tried Prilosec reglan Zantac Zyrtec     At one point was out back on Paxil then tried Lexapro.    This began again 2 weeks ago and I have lost 16 lbs with no appetite and inability to eat a whole meal.  I go to bed fearing that the cycle will return again every morning and sure enough it does.  I have considered going back on Lexapro or paxil so I can maybe eliminate the anxiety    It feels like I have awful epigastric pain that awakens me with the trembling usually around 3am.
358304 tn?1409713092 I bet your neck and back hurt because you were tightening your muscles without even knowing it. I always do that when stress and anxiety hits.... And I swear the last 3 summers I've gotten so dizzy and light headed i swear one time it felt like I was drunk. I noticed the pattern of it being in the summer this year finally and assumed it was allergies.
1606324 tn?1298297471 I will get these headaches, but they are not the fantastic type that just blow you away, i have gotten those when i was younger and would have to sleep them off, but they are just headaches, i would notice my vision would get blurry before it would happen, and the headache would come, and its just a general feeling of unease. it lasts short time, or a long time, usually when im stressed yes but couldnt it just be allergies contributing to all of this.
Avatar f tn i started on wed night and by Saturday the tightness had eased up but not completly gone i also to naproxin (aleve) which also helped to but i would still worry as to why its not gone yesterday i started feeling as if i have a hair in the back of my throat and the tightness and pulling is starting to relax but i still have that feeling as something is there i went back to the dr who seem not to care at all and said that it will go away and just left I am happy that its starting to ease but i ju
Avatar n tn Diagnosed me with idiopathic hives/angioedema. Prescribed Zyrtec and Axid, suggested anxiety. I am only taking Zyrtec, hives stopped. Now I am having alternating constipation/sometimes diarhea immediately after I start eating. Happened twice after eating tomatoes. Is it possible to have anxiety about eating? Or is this an overlooked allergy. I am afraid to eat. I have been under alot of stress due to marital problems.
358304 tn?1409713092 I tried getting up, and not worrying about it. I did a crossword in the living room, i started shaking with anxiety... then i looked at the clock and it was 5:35am. I was not getting sleepy... so I broke down and took 1 unisom. I think I finally fell asleep around 6:15am, and woke up at 8:40am. I'm an anxious wreck this morning. I think my biggest fear is, that "WILL I EVER SLEEP AGAIN WITHOUT HAVING TO TAKE SOMETHING?" I know that that thought is causing anxiety...
358304 tn?1409713092 b/c that is me letting my anxiety get to me! I have to realize this is ALL anxiety related and more than likely JUST ALLERGIES! Can post nasal drip do this? and cause these kinds of feelings? Should I just get it over with and go see a DR for peace of mind? Just so he can say "No, it's not cancer". I hate it when I do this to myself!!! I've done SOOO good for a long time... now this. I hate it b/c I've become OCD with my darn throat...
Avatar m tn i m an anxiety patient for past four years, now a days i m facing the exact symptoms as you are facing,my left side gets stretched specially brain and heart ,fash heart rate, nausea , diziness anyone????
358304 tn?1409713092 a week ago asking him about my muscle tension and stuff, he assured me over the phone that it was just anxiety and nothing to worry about. I told him about my vision too, and he said that that can be normal too with anxiety. Crazy thing is though, is that I DO NOT FEEL ANXIOUS!!! AT ALL. I thought about getting my eyes checked out. Need to get an eye exam anyways. I havent been to an eye Dr. for a checkup even since I was probably 10 years old. I've always had good vision.
358304 tn?1409713092 27 male. Anxiety sufferer. For 3 years I have taken ativan on and off as needed for anxiety spells. Some spells last days, weeks, and some even a month or so. But I always wean off the ativan (usually .5mg, sometimes 1mg if severe) This year I was doing fine, then had a really bad anxiety spell, that was just a huge downward spiral... my ativan wasnt even working. I had to take three .5mg tablets one night just to relax. I called my Dr. who unfortunately was out of the country for 2 months!
2005453 tn?1328242171 I have been suffering from severe anxiety for over a year. It started October 2010 with a severe dizzy spell where I ended up in the E.R. for them to tell me it was high blood pressure and to get some bloodwork done. The bloodwork was normal. Then it got worse over the holidays to where I would feel off balance and like I was about to lose consciousness at any moment. My primary care doctor finally decided it was anxiety, end of January 2011. He started me on Cymbalta but I couldn't handle that.
784382 tn?1376934640 i have been dizzy for 4 months now and its been a nightmare! been to GP, ENT,ER a few times, and neurologits, blood test,hearing,allergy,ENG and 2 catscans later all came back normal. the ENT seems to thinks it allergies, and i have been started on allergry shots (havent started working yet) i will be getting an MRI to rule out a acoustic neuroma (scary) a benign tumor in the inner or middle ear i believe has anyone ever had any problems with dizziness and allergies?.....
Avatar f tn Once the breathing is slower , you should feel more relaxed and can work through your issues better and your anxiety should be at a more manageable level.
358304 tn?1409713092 25mg once before bed bc my anxiety has been up a little, and I stress on the word little. Not bad anxiety at all. Well here's what's been going on. The past 2 weeks I've been very tired EVERY DAY! my eyes feel like they want to close, I feel heaviness between my eyes, and forehead. I have some delayed vision: example: I was changing a lightbulb tonight looked down for a sec looked back up and I felt like my vision was delayed, like the walls moved for a second. My neck feels tense.
Avatar n tn I did go to the emergency room sunday because i had severe nausea, trembling etc, etc from the percocet and Zyrtec D which are not suppossed to be taken together allong with the sever anxiety. the ER fixed my migrain pain and nausea but I left there still in a paniced state.
Avatar n tn Try to just go with it, understand that it is anxiety and that it will pass with rest and the halting of releasing more adrenaline into your system. Am here to talk!
Avatar f tn So you see, I dropped the only medication I was taking in that class of my own accord... I am on meds for allergies and asthma (Zyrtec, Singulair and Advair) and more recently to try and help with the current problems, I am taking Neurontin (900 mg per day - I cant take more makes me too sleepy to work) and Darvocet, which I take about 2 pills a day. I try not to take more, makes me itch if I take too much of it.
519035 tn?1348279373 Now going on week 9 of synthroid. Symptoms are leaving me. Acid isn't as bad if I don't try and burp up my lump. It has gotten a lot smaller but still there. I am draining from my ears. That swelling was pretty fierce. I had no idea it was linked to the ears. My poor parents even put tubes in them, but they fell out. Glad I know its linked to thyroid so I won't have to. Anyway. I am taking zyrtec for my dry skin, any other ideas???
358304 tn?1409713092 I don't know the cause, but what might help is magnesium supplements. Magnesium relaxes the muscles, and both anxiety and medication for it interferes sometimes with its absorption (besides which most Americans often get too much calcium which leaches magnesium out of the body, usually by drinking milk instead of getting calcium and magnesium in balance from deep green vegetables). Might help you sleep as well.
Avatar f tn I almost guarantee that your having anxiety and it *****. Seek help from a therapist about generalized anxiety disorder, and possible panic attack disorder. I wish you the best and hope you get to feeling better soon. By the way I take celexa(citalopram - generic) for depression and xanax for panic attacks. works really well and i also have a fear of taking prescriptions. I will get a panic attack thinking of what a new drug will do to me. Sounds silly but it is true. take care.....
358304 tn?1409713092 You'd think I'd had them all by now. lol. I go through anxiety FUNKS. Meaning, I can go months without a drop of anxiety, and then BAM, I'm hit, and the anxiety can last for weeks. But then I manage somehow to get over it. And it passes. March 12th is when mine started. I was fine before then. Appetite was strong as ever. Was chilling with the family, having fun with life. Then BAM, had a BAD BAD panic attack...
358304 tn?1409713092 27 Male. Anxiety sufferer, off and on. I usually suffer from health anxiety. I lost my grandmother to cancer 3 years ago, and this is when I started getting health anxiety. But I have gotten better at dealing with it, so I thought. Then this bought of anxiety came and it's just driving me SCARED. You see, this ALL started with a minor sore throat due to allergies. I'm good at turning molehills into mountains.
Avatar n tn One day i felt short of breath off and on. I also took a Zyrtec. I almost went to the hospital because i felt bad and felt like my allergies/ sinuses were causing it. I also have anxiety. I see my Doctor next week but my questions are: Could that have been Allergy induced Asthma? Could it start now even though i am 26? And how common is Multiple Chemical Sensitivity? And can Perinnial Rhinitus Allergies get worse with time?
369861 tn?1306279286 This all started with my potassium being low and being hypoglycemic. The endo doctor took me off all diuretics so that i could take the renin and aldesterone tests. Does the potassium have anything to do with the thyroid and why did the endo take me off all diuretics to take the two tests. Doesn't he realise that my body would retaing the water and the result of edema? Just wondering?
Avatar f tn I doubt it stops any of us from using them, but drugs are always going to present possible problems, and docs and pharmacists are pretty clueless about them. There's just too many of them, and most only happen to a minority of users, sometimes a small minority.
Avatar f tn I can feel the heat rise in my body. First my nexk and chest turn red and blotchy. If the situation or anxiety passes, it will go away pretty quickly. If I cannot escape the stressful situation, I start to realize that I'm getting blotchy and the redness gets worse. The blotchiness creeps up to my face and cheeks. That's usually a worst case situation. I usually don't blush or get blotchy in the face. It typically stays on the neck or chest.
1768199 tn?1323621536 So I'm not crazy? :) At times I feel close to my normal self and at times it's a roller coaster. Focussing at work is especially hard. I work in a lab and have to be exacting in my work or I get erroneous results. Today I couldn't remember what I fed the cell culture I'm growing. I guess it'll either hang in there and live or croak and I'll start it over. Thanks, dixiechicdana.
Avatar f tn Because my asthma is so bad, I still had to take the prednisone, albuterol in the nebulizer, the rescue inhaler and zyrtec. My baby girl came out healthy with all her fingers and toes, and smart. I breast fed for about 6 weeks, not the best idea because it seemed like my baby never slept because of the prednisone. I'm not saying that taking meds and having a baby at the same time is a good thing, but it did work out ok for me.
Avatar n tn I visited several doctors, who all prescribed different antihistamines (Allegra, Hydroxizine, and Zyrtec) to treat the itching. After a while, the itching spread, and I eventually stopped sweating -- instead, I felt the "prickly" sensation whenever I would normally have broken into a slight sweat. Three weeks ago, I became convinced that I was actually allergic to Zyrtec and quite possibly the other antihistamines. I stopped taking everything.
1460021 tn?1445739558 I'm not trying to make excuses, obviously because i have made this post and i can see that i am abusing it... Oddly enough i take Xanax for my anxiety...but i only ever take it when or if i need it and i don't exceed my perscribed dosage. As you all know it Xanax can be addictive and abused...i don't abuse that, but i take phenergan? I'm not going to head down the path i did with Codine...I won't.
