Zyrtec dosage for 2 year old

Common Questions and Answers about Zyrtec dosage for 2 year old


Avatar n tn I had them about 7 years ago, they lasted about a year. I'm taking Zyrtec (once a day), Zantac (2 / day), Doxepin (150 mg @ bedtime), and Benadryl as needed. I had been on prednisone on and off since July but my doctor has taken me off of it (for obvious reasons). Unfortunately nothing I've taken other than prednisone has worked. My hives are particularly associated with pressure (underwear) - Since September i have worn a tank top under my clothes due to hives associated with wearing a bra.
Avatar n tn My 2 1/2 year old dd has been doing the same thing for a week now. only at night or in the morning. i took her in to the pediatrician on friday and they said it is "going around" (here anyways) they said it was viral. so there was no medicine. the first 4 days she has diarrea. she has been sipping on pedialite and it on the "b.r.a.t" diet. (bananas,rice,applesauce,toast) that is what my doc said to do. so far no vomiting today or tonight. good luck everybody!
Avatar n tn Yes. In the drug book I have, it lists benadryl as an anti-tussive (cough suppressant). There are sooo many drugs that are given for other reasons (allergies, pain meds, anti-nausea, etc) that are cough suppressants as well. i/e hydrocodone (one brand name is lortab) is also a cough suppressant, phenergan (anti nausea) is also a cough suppressant...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.
1251333 tn?1445221815 The Rituxan comes in 500mg packaged ampules only which have to be made up in a bag of saline fluid before administering. The dosage is typically 2 x 500mg ampules (or) 1000mg in a single dose for an infusion / treatment. This is the repeated again 14 days later exactly the same. My prescription displays 2 x 500mg ampules = 1000mg dose as well as one repeat. I hope that makes sense :-) Karry.
Avatar n tn It reminds me of a pain during one of my pregnancies years ago. (I have an 18 year old and a 14 year old, I am on my 2nd marriage and my husband has no siblings.) ANYWAY, the pain I had experienced was "round ligament pain", it was an intense pulling, muscle cramp kind of pain. I wonder if hormones can trigger these, because nothing has changed from a week ago and they just started the day after the transfer. Sorry to ramble.
Avatar n tn It has been like this now for about 2 weeks. I have not been sick for a least 5 months, No sinus infections or colds. Not swollen or red just feels like needles when I squeeze it or press on it. What the heck is it. Please let me know.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am a 59 year old women in the UK who has suffered this unbearable itching on both arms (alternately) for about 10 years.it has worsened with each attack and I have currently had it for about 7 weeks..all day..every day. My doctor told me about 3 years ago that it was Hives,so I have been taking anti histamines,these have gradually helped me less and less..I have only just discovered this site and am amazed to discover that my symptons are BRP and not Hives!
Avatar n tn I caught 2 colds again this year, with no congestion, just a raggedy throat and cough for 2 days, and no hawk spit Snot Demon.
148057 tn?1231430591 I started having this about 5 years ago but the first two years I just experienced the roaring in my ears, it would last for about 2 weeks and then just go away. The third year, in mid October I again got the roaring in my right ear (always the right, never left), it lasted about 2 weeks and then in the middle of the night I awoke with severe vertigo and then started throwing up immediately.
Avatar m tn My wife has been experiencing an outbreak of chronic hives for almost 2 years. It started after she broke some bones in her foot and in using crutches she got a pressure hive outbreak. We have tried controlling with H-1 antihistamines. They exacerbate her condition rather than control it. We recently tried hydroxychloroquine with adverse side affects. We have tried L-thyroxin treatment as well but the hives did not go into remission.
1964826 tn?1326327020 I started out on generic levo, but immediately noticed itching and burning skin, so after 2 weeks I requested the brand name. I've now been on Levoxyl for about 6 weeks. I've had to request full labs including Free T's since this first one last week he (ofcourse) only asked for TSH, which was .93. I admit-I feel pretty good. BUT, about ten days ago insomnia hit full force. When I first started the generic two months ago, I experience some slight insomnia for about a week.
Avatar m tn I am a 50 year old male, who for the last few years, seems to have violent coughing/ gasping for breathe when encountered with: stale air (eg. Closed cars) or strong odor (eg. Car exhaust). I have been tested to be allergic to dust/ dust mites. After a couple of minutes of coughing and spiting out and having a tablet of Benadryl allergy medication, things are pretty normal. The above mentioned reactions happen mostly in morning.
Avatar n tn I'm a 52 year old maile who is athletic and in good shape. 3 years ago, I went through a period of approximately 2-3 weeks in which I felt fatigued, throat wasn't sore, but felt a little irritated, and had some sinus pressure. I had assumed it was some type of allergy, which I had never had in my life. Things got back to normal and I didn't think any more of it. Yesterday, I started feeling the same way.
959034 tn?1253675076 Respiratory support should be available, and the dosage should be increased stepwise as tolerated (approximately 5 mg/day of prednisone or equivalent at 2- to 3-day intervals until marked clinical improvement or a dosage of 50 mg/day is reached). Dose reductions of the acetylcholinesterase inhibitor may be required as symptoms improve, which often may be delayed and gradual.
Avatar f tn Hi Everyone, I'll try to make this as short as possible. I'm a 27 year old female. For my entire life I've been blessed with good health and no known illnesses, problems, or allergies. For the past six months I've been suffering from chronic hives. The first time I broke out into severe hives was July 2013. Prior to this, I've never had hives or been know to have any allergies. I saw the doctor a few times and the dermatologist.
Avatar n tn He has gotten better with age and we have never considered surgery since heis well contolled with meds. Gary was on Prevacid from 2 years old until last year. Last year our insurance stopped covering Prevacid so we had to switch to Prilosec which they cover 100% It has worked well though the dosage is higher. When GW is doing well he takes breaks from the meds. This is mostly in the summer since he is less stressed when school is out and eats better.
Avatar f tn The DR put him on keppra (in which had too many side effects), then Topamax and valium, in which he stayed on for 2 1/2 months. He continued to have the seizures, sometimes 4 a day, and sometimes 3 days in between them. At this point he was 17 months old, and after researching the effects of topamax online myself and no seizures for 4 weeks, I slowly and correctly weaned him off of the medication all together. He has had no seizure since then....
1933354 tn?1323366434 EKG was all good, however when I take the 25 mg lopressor, for about 2-3 hours after I take it, my hands are cold, and it's hard to breath. I am super sensitive to all meds it seems, whats low dose for some is high for me. Should I try and cut it back to 12.5 mg??
Avatar n tn My 3 1/2 year old is being tested for cystic fibrosis this week. I'm really scared and about at wits end.
Avatar m tn I am an 18 year old female. I have a couple of health concerns that are stressing me out. I have narcolepsy and was just diagnosed a few weeks ago. I have had digestive issues for around 8 years. It kind of comes and goes. It usually lasts like 3 weeks then comes back after a couple week break. It can be diarrhea, constipation, having 6 or 7 bowel movements a day.... I have never had normal periods. I have been on birth control since I first had my period in seventh grade.
1684282 tn?1505701570 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? These doctors seem to forget their pharmacology training. They also forget to use their independent thinking and ability to look up information for themselves.
Avatar f tn I am a 32-year-old woman, otherwise healthy, but I have had nasal allergies since I was a child. I have tried tried various treatments including Singulair, Claritin, Zyrtec, Allegra, and Nasonex. I am just starting my second year of allergen therapy injections, which includes dust, cat dander, and pollens. About six months ago, I had a CT scan and was diagnosed with severe nasal polyps, which explained my loss of sense of smell several years before.
Avatar dr m tn Not breathing well through your nose can alter your heart rate and blood pressure, as well as to increasing your stress response. Your nose makes about 2 pints of mucous every day. If your nose isn't working properly and mucous isn't cleared, the stagnant mucous can lead to infections such as sinusitis or ear infections. Lastly, not breathing well through your nose can aggravate snoring or obstructive sleep apnea.
Avatar f tn I have taken advair, albuterol, xeponex, prednisone, singular, ventolin, have a nebulizer and nothing helps. I have been hospitalized 12x in the last 2 years I have been in the the ICU on several occasions. I have seen a pulmonologist but I cant seem to get my asthma under control in the year 2010 I have bronchitis 6x. I have 2 kids and it seems like it is getting worse every month. I change my filters in my house evry month. I vacuum every other day. I dust every other day.
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.
209591 tn?1267418314 Hi, I am a 26 year old female from Southeastern Georgia, who has been experiencing some pretty unrelenting symptoms for three years. My doctor's have tried to pinpoint a condition that could be causing these symptoms. Looking at my laboratory testing done on December 4th, I see that my Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, Erythrocyte, Potassium, and Creatinine levels are all low, this has not been a problem up until now. Each of which seems to decrease in value each time I have labs done.
Avatar n tn Hi! I am a 41 year old female who after 2 months of a massive respiratory infection this winter and 28 days of Levaquin, came out of it with adult onset asthma and multiple allergies. I did the whole scratch testing thing in May, and my allergist wanted me on allergy shots, Symbicort, Singulair and Zyrtec. I was allergic to everything except birds, rats and cockroaches. A weird thing happened with the scratch test in that for molds, I tested 0 in the office, and so it was marked.
610453 tn?1259108322 I have most or all of the symptoms everyone is discussing & I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto's as well, although my thyroid is functioning ok (they just see the presence of antibodies). I am curious if any of you are extremely active & eat well.
Avatar f tn however, the diet had a considerable effect on my symptoms. I had been taking the same dosage of Zyrtec and Zantac before and during my nutrition plan, but the difference between the severity of the hives before and during were pretty impressive. Since then, I have re-introduced honey, unbleached whole grains, and organic dairy back into my diet with no problems. Another important tidbit is that I am a 20-year-old female.
530191 tn?1214166411 My name is Megan and I'm 30 years old with one 2 year old daughter. I have posted about her just recently, but wanted to post about my current situation to see if anyone had some ideas. When I was in high school I noticed that I had white little patches on my hands. I wasn't sure what they were at the time. I found out when I was about 24 that it was vitiligo. It has spread over the years and has taken control of much of my skin.
