Avatar f tn It became the first of four recalls of McNeil products in the past year, including the April 30 recall of 136 million bottles of infant and children's Tylenol, Motrin, Benadryl and Zyrtec, which have shaken consumers' confidence and threaten to stain Johnson and Johnson's brand name.
Avatar f tn Something about how there are histamines in your bladder that can bother the IC, and the antihistamines in Zyrtec reduced that. I can't recall the precise medical reasoning, but I remember she took it for years for her IC, and it never harmed it. She also has seasonal allergies, so it's something she would have taken anyways.
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.
Avatar f tn Like the scratching produces the red spots (what I think of as hives) Have been to the dr. twice. 1st time steriod shot. 2 days later not any better and dr. prescribed Zyrtec, Vistaril & Ranitidine (all antihistimines) Itching only slightly better. Still driving me nuts!!! No new meds, soaps, det., etc. that I can recall. My question is: does anyone experience the itching all over or just localized? Does anyone ever have a rash like hives?
Avatar n tn Finally they treated me with a medicine I don't recall the name of, and I assume it got rid of it completely even though I had to stop early because of the insomnia that it caused me to have - did not sleep for 72+ hours straight while taking it. After taking that, I still have had bad acid reflux and GERD, so the Gastro doctor put me on a few medicines for acid - finally resulting in ranitidine which worked the best. I was around 220lbs at the time, for reference.
Avatar f tn This has always been confined to my neck to start-could this have to do with my thyroid? I do have allergies that runs in the family and I take a Zyrtec every day for indoor/outdoor allergies. I am being hesitant to run to the doctor for testing as I have health insurance but my deductibles are high and the economy has hit us hard as my husband has owned a real estate company for 25+ years. Any advice would be helpful. The swelling is bad enough that I do wear turtlenecks to cover up.
Avatar n tn I recently went for sinus pain and that's exactly what they gave me - Zyrtec plus a $50 nose spray which I used once and threw out because it tasted bad and burned my throat.
Avatar n tn previously I took Trazodone but changed to Remeron about four months ago. I also take Zyrtec, Humibid, and Sudafed for allergies. I am in good health otherwise. I have been experiencing progressively worsening impairment of short-term memory. I failed several college courses recently despite putting in at least 40 hours a week on homework and studying, and I was frequently an honor roll student in high school. Nothing seems to stick in my memory, and I flunked all of my tests.
Avatar n tn 5 mg of benicar, and alprazolam 0.5 milligrams 3 times a day, and mirtazpine 30 mg along with 500 mg magnesium and 3 mg melatonin to sleep. She doesn't take the mirtazpine every day. Otherwise she takes naproxine, extra strength tylenol, occasional cemetidine, and generic allergy pills, which make her shaky so only when she's desperate. About 2 to 3 cups of coffee a day also. She smokes a pack a day right now. I was thinking chantix which is how I quit.
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?
1711722 tn?1356491154 I am stealing a Zyrtec from work. Shhhh! Don't recall how it affected me in the past, so we'll see what happens. Thanks! I am in Week #19 and there is a chance I may have to do 48 weeks. Hopefully not, but things are kinda up in the air at the moment, as I am changing docs.
Avatar m tn NaturalNews) Johnson & Johnson has issued a recall of over 40 Tylenol brand children's products, including Concentrated Tylenol Infant Drops, Children's Motrin, Children's Zyrtec, Benadryl and other over-the-counter products. The recall was triggered by what the FDA calls "manufacturing deficiencies." Douglas Stearn, a senior FDA official, said the manufacturing process was "not in control", which is the FDA's polite way of saying it was "out of control.
Avatar f tn I am hypersensitive and must change my lifestyle too so I don't have to take so much Zyrtec and asthma medication and need to possibly take allergy shots soon, but I went hiking in the fresh air in Georgia yesterday, a contrast to the smoggy humidity of New Orleans where I live in a once mice infested shot gun house and yesterday I felt like 10 years younger.
Avatar n tn I took him to the pediatrician who noticed that he had (seasonal) allergies and he said that it might be his allergies that were causing the blinking. The doctor went ahead and prescribed Zyrtec and sent us to the optometrist as well.
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 have been checked out by Neuro, ENT and GP and NOTHING. I'm wondering if I have TMJ but I don't know. Here are my symptoms... Right ear pain Right ear fullness/ringing Pain behind right eye spot headaches on right side grinding teeth at night stiff neck - going into my shoulders I had an MRI/MRA back in Oct and all it showed was chronic sinusitis which I am being treated for by my ENT however he knows the pain is not coming from my ear. I am worried. Could this be an aneursym?
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 The tinnitus comes and goes and can be really loud and annoying. Visited another doctor in Sep who thought it might be an allergic reaction and was given zyrtec for a month. No change with the head pressure. Saw an ENT in Oct who feels that it just a left-over from whatever made me ill in Jun and thinks it will get better with time. I have a slight clicking in my jaw and he thinks TMJ might be a factor but I have no jaw pain. I sit in front of a computer at least 10 hours a day.
Avatar n tn This is the 5th and longest bout (about two weeks long so far) in 3 months. I have tried antibiotics and it comes back. I am on every allergy treatment -- zyrtec, allergy shots, steriod spray and I got a steroid shot when I was at the doc a week ago. Alll of it has helped in the past, but not since March. I did find a few alternatives on the internet I am trying (out of desperation).

Avatar n tn It began with complete ear fullness. Went to internist, and he gave me Rhinocort and said to take Sudafed. It then appeared to go away for 2 weeks. Then it returned, but not to the severity as the first time. I proceeded to an ENT who peformed the test analyzing the pressure in the inner ear canals. Came back negative. I have continued to use the Rhinocort along with Sudafed and Claritin D. I then began to experience slight jaw pain in the area below the ear. Hurts when I chew.
Avatar n tn I still have a little carotid artery pain, but it is very difficult to say if it is the muscles around it because of previous neck problems. I used Zyrtec and Motrin for the past 2 weeks. It had to be something I picked up from the fastfood court at the PX in Ft. Benning, GA. Now, I'm afraid to get any fastfood.
Avatar n tn plastic surgery in July (breast reduction and tummy tuck; high blood pressure and I am hypoglecemic. My PCP states he heard something in my neck and has ordered a Caritoid Ultrasound but I am concern that this is not my problem and it is something we are missing. I am having a low grade headache;some low grade burred vision; dizziness when turning over in the bed and some facial pain behind my eyes. Please tell me if we should be looking at other things.
Avatar n tn Four years ago i started to have servere dizzyness it would last for about 5 to 10 seconds, my ears would feel blocked and my head felt so much pressure and then it would dissapear. I was under the E/N/T specialist for 2 years and had various tests, such as balance, MRI scan and a nerves test and all came back o.k.
Avatar n tn They have gotten so bad that I am starting to lose my concentration, forget what I am saying and doing -- wrong way on the metro, can't recall words., etc. I reduced my Humira from 40mg to 20mg and have found that I am back to having only a two-day headache after injection. But, I'm conflicted since the Humira is working for me. Any suggestions and/or similar reactions would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I was disgnosed last year, take zyrtec daily and nasonex, no help so far. Last night I was breathing through my mouth so much that my tongue swelled up a bit and was painful to get back into my mouth. I cant stand it.. the headches, the sneezing the runny nose, congestion itchy eyes red and swollen. Sometimes it is painful to even sneeze. I cant stand it/ I am sorry to see so many people in this same misery.
Avatar n tn ) I once took zyrtec for it and that helped a lot. I just have a lump which sometimes hurts a lot, sometimes I forget about it. It probably affects me 4 or 5 times a year, but usually after I take a long airplane trip. I also have sleep problems too (I usually sleep plenty and still feel unrested throughout the day. My speech is not very clear either. I never thought that these things were related until tonight while reading this board.
1129774 tn?1279835362 radiated and went into hypo. in 2003 and have been taking .112 of lev. (generic) since. Three months ago I went off BCP, which I was only on for 1 1/2 mo and it has changed my life. I got horrible headaches, chest pain, shortness of breath, chest tightness,extreme muscle fatigue, dizziness, vertigo, blurred vision in right eye.
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.
