zyrtec

Avatar f tn I noticed for the past year or more that his growth has not been the same as when he was an infant/toddler. A friend had told me that she saw online somewhere that Zyrtec can suppress growth in children. Maybe when used for a long time? Does anyone know about this? Is this true? Or is this a possibility that Zyrtec taken for allergy could suppress growth in children?
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.

This too is generally regarded as safe but is recommended to only be used 2 months out of the year unless your doctor has said otherwise. It's a nasal steroid. These have been associated with usually insignificant slowing of growth. https://www.post-gazette.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and gain weight very quickly. The last few months I have experienced lip swelling a day or so prior to my cycle starting or during my cycle. I also experience hives that itch badly. I also experience extreme fatigue during a lip swelling episode where I can sleep 18+ hours. I am a mother of four and no one can figure this out. Help!
460830 tn?1347219306 ), but I never have had any problem with taking a normal dose of Zyrtec...if I go ahead and take a Zyrtec, and it turns out that I did already take one, would it do any harm?
Avatar n tn there are many stories of families whose children suffered many behavior problems from taking this medication. i hope this helps you.
Avatar m tn 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. I went to the emergency room and they put me back on steroids and benadryl again. 3 days after my steroid dosage had ended my hand and foot only on the left side started swelling to the point I couldn't walk. Got put back on steroids and zyrtec and some antacids.
850029 tn?1238857820 Does anyone know if you can grow resistant to antihistamines? I've been on Zyrtec for a year and feel like it doesn't work as well as it used to. I know that I have more allergens around me but would think I still should be getting relief. I spend at least $100 a month trying to get some relief. I'm thinking with nothing working I should just save myself $100:) the only time I feel someone what better is taking Advil Cold and Sinus, the Zyrtec seems to do nothing......
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 f tn what medicine and dosage is safe to take?
2169449 tn?1358489923 Benadryl is safe, but just a normal dosage and it's better to wait until after your first trimester to take meds...
Avatar f tn My doctor said I culd take Zyrtec as long as I wanted, so far for the past 3 Weeks ive taken one everyday
Avatar n tn My 11 year old son is currently taking Dexadrine. He has slowly increased to 20 mg in the morning. His teacher and myself (my son too) have noticed a postitive change in his work output at school and during homework sessions. Two of the side effects are of great concern to me. My son can't sleep until well after 10:30 pm. (we are trying Melatonin, but haven't found the right dosage). The other side effect that is most troubling is the loss of appetite.
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 For sure. Cats are at least 10 times smaller than a SMALL adult human female. What is given to us is too much for such a small animal. For example: 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.
503607 tn?1275671579 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?
Avatar m tn I am concerned about the weight gain everyone talks about.
Avatar n tn If you look at the label on cough syrup for children, even those typically recommend for age 6 and up (at least the brands I have seen.) When my 2 1/2 year old has a cold with a cough I give him milk slightly warmed with honey in it. I have also given him a teaspoon of honey on it's own. It works extremely well.
Avatar n tn Amoxicillin is available in a number of oral dosage forms to help parents administer it safely and effectively to their children. Pediatric Drops According to PubMed Health, a website of the U.S. National Library of Medicine, amoxicillin is available in a pediatric drop form for infants. Each ml of this bubble-gum flavored liquid contains 50 mg of amoxicillin, states Rx List. Babies under the age of 3 months receive 30 mg of amoxicillin each day for every 2.2 lb.
Avatar m tn Have you tried claritin? I started using that to combat my allergies with perfume, but found that zyrtec worked better. I'm not sure about other allergy meds though, have you tried nasal sprays? Benadryl knocks me out in seconds so I understand not wanting to take it all the time- have you tried using the tablets and cutting them in half? I found a 1/4 of the adult dosage works well enough on reactions my Zyrtec isn't good enough for without causing excessive drowsiness.
Avatar m tn While an initial dosage be weight based, the ending dosage shouldn't be based on either. It should be based on FT3 and FT4 levels, as well as symptoms. You should not be worried about your TSH, you should be worried about your FT levels.
