zyrtec

Avatar m tn Hey everyone, About 2 years ago I was having problems with severe allergies. One night I woke up and the left side of my cheek was swollen. Then it spread to my lips. I went to the doctor and she put me on steroids and benadryl. We determined that it was an allergy to hookah. I took my dosage and quit hookah. 3 days after the steroids had ended I woke up in the middle of the night with the left side of my tongue swollen.
Avatar n tn Of course the examples I gave are rx and not recommended for children. benadryl would be fine, just give the recommended dosage for their age/weight. It would probably be 1/2 tsp for the 2 year old, & 3/4 tsp for the 3 year old. I would double check that to make sure.
351317 tn?1204751871 t just use a pill splitter and cut tablets in half. I had to ask for a lower dosage for my Benadryl myself for the same reason. This is also what I read that I needed to do with kidney function issues. Mine are capsule form that I buy behind the pharmacy counter as a prescription. The insurance still won't cover them, but they're still cheaper to buy this way than buying them OTC.
460830 tn?1347219306 Hello, Antihistamines are pretty benign. I take more than the daily recommended dose per doctor's orders every day. Unless you are taking Zyrtec-D, which it sounds like you know not to do, it won't be a problem. I would go ahead and take a plain Zyrtec. God bless.
Avatar m tn Alright thanks,and no i take plain zyrtec,not zyrtec d,it doesnt contain pseudoephedrine....i called up my psychiatrist,he said its nothing to worry about,its common with all the medicines im taking,im meeting my physician later this week,and he can then recommend a cardiologist for me....

Avatar f tn It only is in the system for a short time based on its half life. Children can take this usually without incident. However, once stopped, some allergy sufferers are uncomfortable. Perhaps this is what is going on. Again, please talk to his doctor. Why did you discontinue it? Was there a particular reason? It's an antihistamine. Sometimes weaning down on the dose can help with that occurrence of increased allergy symptoms upon discontinuation.
689528 tn?1364135841 s control, like this time of year ,he gets a prednisone per day for 3 or 4 days and then every other day for two or until things calm down. Zyrtec can be expensive, but we actually found a generic brand at the dollar store! $1. for 14 pills, so we clear their shelves! Our poor boy suffered until we found this new vet, every other night, we would do oatmeal baths, benedryl cream, benedryl pills, alcohol rubs, ice.. it was heartbreaking. We can totally relate.

503607 tn?1275671579 The did not take the Zyrtec-D the regular does not have the pseudrine(sp?) I have been having issues for a few days but yesterday it got bad. I came home from work early. I am writing it off from the Zyrtec, I felt like I could pass out at anytime exhausted and dry mouth from the Zyrtec. I will be sticking to Claritin. Anyone find these issue get worse when its really humid and hot out? I try to keep hydrated but palps even increase during the summer?
326352 tn?1310994295 I thought they already had a formula of Zyrtec for kids? My boys started zyrtec when they were 6 mos old. It was a liquid. Ds had to stop the zyrtec after a while b/c it made his eczema flair as it dried him out way to much. DDAVP is desmopressin acetate sometimes it's rx'd for bedwetting or nose bleeds. Ds had his rx'd for both. He started his shots this past Nov. and he turned 9 that Sept.
Avatar m tn Is it safe to take both Allegra-D and Zyrtec. In short, I suffer from allergies. I find that I feel best when I take a single pill of Allegra-D in the morning and a single pill of Zyrtec at night. In part, I have been doing this because I haven't had to go to the doctor (or Canada) to get more Allegra D so I can take it twice a day. I was wondering what the possible side-effects, besides fatigue, are of the regimen I'm taking? I've felt much better since beginning it.
Avatar n tn During the first six months of life, infants should not get more than 1,000 IU of vitamin D daily, while the daily dosage of vitamin D for infants up to 12 months old should not exceed 1,500 IU. The tolerable upper intake level for vitamin D for toddlers younger than 4 years old and young children between 4 and 8 years old are 2,500 IU and 3,000 IU, respectively. Anyone age 9 or older should not get more than 4,000 IU of vitamin D in a day. Read more: http://www.livestrong.
Avatar n tn t know of any problem with taking Zyrtec-D with Plavix. You can also read your medication leaflets with the medications to check or check with your pharmacist. If you are being treated for high blood pressure or heart disease/vascular problem, I would NOT recommend taking the Zyrtec-D WITHOUT discussing this with your physician.
Avatar n tn I am 20 weeks pregnant and am getting a sinus infection, I know Zyrtec D works but i dont know if im allowed to take it! Will it harm baby if I take Zyrtec D???
Avatar f tn Benadryl for sure and claratin I think
Avatar f tn I recently developed a cough that contains a bright green mucous. I was diagnosed with a sinus infectiona couple weeks ago and prescribed doxycyline and a z pack. I started feeling better so I stopped taking the antibiotic. I then began to develop fluid in my ears and a stuffy nose. I took a decongestant and stopped taking my daily allegra. I seemed to feel better for a few.days. I've never had a fever or headache with any of this.
Avatar n tn We love Tenex - it was the only thing that worked. My son takes Zyrtec for his allergies.
1161616 tn?1262747549 I am allergic to pcn. I am taking Depo Perva injection, Zyrtec-D qhs, Fluticasone 16GM bid (generic for Flonase,) Nitrofurantion100MG qhs (generic for Macrodantin,) & Ibuprofen 200MG as needed for inflammation.I have been experiencing almost constant swelling of my hands accompanied w/ an intermittent tingling sensation. I have frequent urination, extreme thirst, & bloating. I seem to be exhausted 90% of the time. I also have lots of varicose veins in both my legs.
Avatar f tn The amount of Zyrtec I was told to give to Akira is only 1/4 of the adult human dosage. This is much smaller than the children's dosage, which is 1/2 of the adult human dosage. I would never ever give medications to Akira without her first seeing her doctor. I do know that no one should ever give Tylenol to their pets. Tylenol is definitely toxic to both dogs and cats. In fact, some of us humans can't even take the stuff.
7165624 tn?1395647767 I was told by my doctor that you can take just about anything but to stay away from the d. Take Claritin but not Claritin D, etc... Look for that d word on any sinus or allergy meds.
