Zyrtec and ibuprofen together

Common Questions and Answers about Zyrtec and ibuprofen together


1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
Avatar n tn If my BP med is causing this, I will quit them tomorrow and face a stroke! Anything to stop this constant post nasal drip and swollen throat. I have been taking ibuprofen for the past few nights and I don't know if it's my imagination or not but it seems to help so my throat must be swelling somewhere or that wouldn't make a difference. Please, does anyone have any answers to this. I'm at my wits end. Also my ENT wants me to have my deviated septum fixed.
Avatar n tn I think I've finally put two and two together. I go through these periods where I dream constantly, all night, and it really bugs me because I feel like my brain can never rest. And I'm starting to wonder if it has to do with the nights I take Xanax. I haven't had the urge to take a Xanax at night in about a month, so I haven't noticed any dream-filled nights.
Avatar n tn pdf And just google it for other articles and medical publications. This is lumped together with Fibromyalgia much of the time, which can exist in conjunction with MPD, but is most definitely different, but many people recognize the name "Fibromyalgia". It may help you to find the "right" doctor. Good luck!
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 The feeling was not only uncomfortable it was down right scary I thought something was pulling like a vacuum inside my ears and they would pop.
903710 tn?1248393412 Now, I take Nexium when needed and Zyrtec every other day since I take enough medicine and don't like it as it is,but what ya gonna do when ur suffering and have no other choice..I wish there was something that would help me like surgery. I am definately ready willing and able as can be...My Neurologist told me @ some ball thing that is attached to ur spine that delivers med. straight way..Ummm..I donno..I am leary of it for some reason.
Avatar m tn Healthy 42 year-old male in Wisconsin. Sudafed and others have not helped, but Zyrtec works well for me and the itch goes away in 30-45 mins. Mine is also only about 11-12ish at night, sometimes on feet, mostly on hands - tonight it's worst on the webs of my hands between thumbs and index fingers. The skin feels hot to the touch, but no physical symptoms on the skin itself. If I can not wait for the Zyrtec to work, I put my feet in ice-water and hold icepacks in my hands.
Avatar n tn I also had a massive ear infection on top of it. I have put together symptoms and realize I have had this a long time. I though it was my neck where I have a herniated disc. On 30 days of steroids, pain meds and sleeping pills. At least I have a compassionate ENT who diagnosed it straight off. I swear he knew before the placed a hand on me. I had been mentioning the swelling just below my jaw and behind my ear for what seems like forever and it was just ignored.
Avatar n tn Lately (the last month or so), I take both one OTC, regular-strength ibuprofen and one OTC, regular-strength aspirin once in the morning and once in the late afternoon which seems to help with the discomfort. Any other advice with this further clarification?
Avatar m tn Muscle spasms seems like it fits the best, the weird thing is that it happens so frequently with me, about 40% of the days in a year and those days are usually grouped together. 90% of the time it happens it's while I'm laying down (and thus, trying to go to sleep) and when it does happen I can stand or sit straight up to make the thumping go away, but once I lay down again it comes back. This has been going on for probably more than 7 years. Is this cause by muscle spasms? Is this curable?
Avatar n tn Since introducing the blood type diet I'm experiencing less stiffness and body pain and have been able to cut back on Ibuprofen. This diet is based on the idea that our blood heritage indicates which foods are beneficial (support the body's natural healing mechanisms) and those which are destructive to a particular blood type. All further complicated by the possibility that premenopause is causing fog and other hormonal imbalances.
Avatar n tn especially in conjunction with regular allergies (eye, dust, pollen) and a breathing condition...I know that they all run together and it is difficult to figure out whether or not it's food or environment...argh...
Avatar n tn It is ONLY on highways that I have difficulty. I believe that speed and visual cues together are somehow causing this. However, when I am a passenger, I really do not have any problems. It is only when I am driving.
959034 tn?1253675076 Theophylline and beta-2 agonists are commonly used together to produce bronchodilation. However, increased or decreased theophylline levels, hypokalemia, and arrhythmias have been reported during their concomitant use. Data have been conflicting. The mechanism is unknown.
Avatar n tn I saw an ENT about 3 weeks ago and had a hearing test - everything was good, and all that I got was some song and dance about it being allergies and to take Zyrtec and Rhinocort. So now I'm taking that, but I have also delved into Colostrum as it is supposed to naturally support your immune system. I have also been taking 5-HTP (50mg) for the insomina/anxiety, but don't go overboard with anything because I have read a few studies that it can backfire if you take too much.
Avatar n tn I thought I got a bug bite which caused it. I itched for 24 hours and then finally broke down and took a zyrtec. Next morning all of the welts from my scratching were gone (which led me to believe it was not bug bites, they would have remained). So I have no idea what's causing it. Only new foods I started eating were bananas and yoplait light. Guess I have to live with it. But man it's horrible!
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 n tn Most recently diagnosed with Angioedema (sort like an allergy, not a heart issue), by my allergist that is an inflammation issue deep in the tissues, normally in the face, eyes, lips, hands, and in my case tongue too. I take Zyrtec and a benedryl at night before bed, it helps with allergy inflammation, but not entirely. Yes, folks, I've been through the ringer. But wait - there's more! I also have TMJ and I've heard that it can cause pain in the neck and shoulders as well.
Avatar n tn It's your life and if you're paying someone to help you put the pieces back together, dangit they had better bring glue and instructions. And maybe you just suffer from chronis sinus infections. I suffer from frequent constipation and there's no underlying cause. I'm just not regular! (: I hope that even if what you're experiencing is not anxiety, you find out what it is. You deserve to be happy and worry/pain-free!
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 Hi my name is Tony and i'm 23 years old.I've been putting together the pieces of this fatigue problem i've had as of recent. For the past three months or so i've been exibiting allergy type symptoms such as: red itchy eyes when i wake up, clear/white mucous from the nose and sometimes phlegm. This has been the 1st year I have had any allergy type symptoms. Preceding these allergies was a year of little sleep, excessive caffeine usage, and some alcohol use.
Avatar n tn antibiotic overuse and misuse pollution and environmental toxins stress and emotional state genetic makeup lifestyle nutritional status The order here is significant, in that if they are listed in the order of least to greatest significance; meaning: your nutritional status and lifestyle override your genetic makeup. Good Luck!
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 dr m tn When you see your doctor, throat redness and irritation and swollen glands are noted, confirming even further that you’re in the middle of a standard upper respiratory infection, or the common cold. Typically, it’ll last anywhere from 3-5 days. A small minority will progress into one of the classic complications of a common cold, such as a bronchitis or sinusitis.
Avatar n tn I definitely understand that if you are in severe pain that is chronic that a doctor that specializes in pain is a must and I understand how important it is to get the pain controlled. Did they actually test you if you were allergic to Ibuprofen and all other NSAIDS( Naproxen generic for Aleve, Advil, Celebrex, and whole bunch of others that are in the same category)?
Avatar f tn Have you ever just taken Sudafed (the red tablets), its a decongestant and a Zyrtec at night. The Zyrtec is helpful because it will dry the sinuses, as we know the sinuses can effect the ears & the Sudafed will open things up (just like the steroids would, but the steroids are better for a short duration). I have a friend who has severe tinnitus and this seems to help him. He blames it on years of loud rock music & drag racing...LOL!

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.
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.
