Zyrtec for cat allergies

Common Questions and Answers about Zyrtec for cat allergies


1232362 tn?1333135406 I figure if people can build up resistance to antihistamines that it would be reasonable to assume that the same thing can happen to the cat. I generally give her the Zyrtec when the allergies are bothering her the most so that I don't give her too much.
7165624 tn?1395647767 I have allergies im wondering if i can buy certain pills or what do you do when u get them??

Avatar m tn Best of luck - I know how it is with cat allergies - mine are HORRIBLE! I can only manage to be in a house that has a cat for about 5-10 minutes before I start itching and having an asthma attack - even if I'm not anywhere near the cat itself!

326352 tn?1310994295 Well, it's not just the one child, they both like Tony, our cat. He's 14. We did try to find a home for him, but have had not takers and neither of us is willing to have him put down. And we (my hubby and I) also are rather fond of the rascal, even if he's a pain sometimes. Our oldest daughter is still rather confused as to what happened with Cleo (who died a few months ago in our home). She's 3, though. Thankfully the younger doesn't really remember.
Avatar m tn I'm allergic and I know it! I've been allergic ever since I was a little boy and I've learned to live with that. My problem is that during the last couple of years, I seem to get more and more sensitive to the allergens that trigger my reactions, as well as more prone to have shortness of breath as a primary reaction! This year, although spring hadn't affected me so far, I happened to catch a cold (whether it was the flu, a cold or bacterial infection I don't know!
Avatar f tn Zyrtec and benadryl. Zyrtec doesn't work for me, and benadryl makes me so tired. So my Dr gave me flonase and said to take the benadryl at night.
Avatar f tn For ladies with Allergies what are you taking or doing. Claritin just doesn't seem to be doing the job. I am a stuffy, sneezey mess with watery eyes half the time. And I need to function so Benadryl is not an option unless I am able to sleep all day.
Avatar m tn In the past I have taken Zyrtec, Claritin, and Xyzal....Zyrtec seems to work best for me. You can get both Zyrtec and Claritin over the counter, and both come in a generic form (I take the generic form of Zyrtec). This helped my allergies tremendously, I would recommend taking one daily while your symptoms are in full-force, and then backing off to just whenever it's needed when your symptoms settle down.
Avatar f tn What do you all do for allergies my nose is stuffy then runny and really itchy..So are my eyes!!!
Avatar f tn Nothing works for me, but Benadryl. My doctor said Claritan and Zyrtec are safe, they just don't work for me. I started taking either half of a regular Benadryl during the day (so I won't get sleepy, haha) or children's Benadryl (it's about the same as half of a regular one). That seems to make my allergies tolerable throughout the day.
Avatar f tn The reason I know is because my doc gave me a list . For allergies take either claritin or benadryl thosecare safe for you and your baby. I hope this helps :) if u need any more help on Meds that are safe to take just ask . By the way congrats on your pregnancy.
Avatar f tn I am a major allergy sufferer! Clarifying and Zyrtec are safe to take. However! Do not get the ones with the "D" added onto them (claritin d) because that is either not studied enough yet or not recommended. I take claritin as needed. "They" say it might be bad for allergies this spring with the late start. Exercise indoors. Take care and hopeb this is helpful. We are also allowed Benadryl but that you would need to call about. ...
11803947 tn?1430842645 I have really severe allergies and benadryl is not doing it for me. Today I woke up with a bloody nose. My eyes are so itchy and watery. My throat hurts a lot and etc ... I dont like taking anything while pregnant but I can't handle this anymore. Any natural remedies ?
681148 tn?1437661591 She said that what I had read online about giving oral Benadryl to cats for their allergies is correct, but my instincts to not give it to her without talking to the vet first were right on, too. She wants me to use Zyrtec for the cat right now and told me how much to give her. Since this seems like the conservative approach, I trust what the vet says, although I do think I'll hold back on giving her any oral medication 'til I see how well she does without it.
Avatar f tn I agree about the steroids. My cat's vet insists that cats process steroids differently than we do. Well, anyway, I couldn't afford to take the cat back to the vet check up that is required to get the prescription refilled. I do think my cat is better off with me just giving her 1/4 tablet of Zyrtec in a day when her allergies are bothering her the most. So, I'm not even giving it to her everyday. This is in line with what I do for myself with the antihistamine I use for myself.
689528 tn?1364135841 10mg every day for the first five days and then every other day for the next five, in addition he gets a generic Zyrtec everyday. Now he just gets a zyrtec every day, and if his allergies act up beyond the zyrtec'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!
Avatar m tn t been able to keep me off of antihistamines long enough to do a skin test. The allergist took lots of blood and all of the main 30 allergies they checked for were negative. It has been 2 years since all of that happened. I have been feeling much better on my vitamin D and zyrtec regiment. Here we are 2 years down the road and I woke up in the middle of the night with the left side of my cheek swollen up. I went to urgent care center in the morning and took 2 Benadryl before I went.
Avatar f tn I have allergies, dust, hay fever, cat hair ect.... not life or death type allergies, but sneezing, itchy nose and eyes, headaches. I take a one a day antihistamine to deal with it. .. but it says on the box not to take if pregnant. Im only 7 weeks, and have stopped taking them... but my allergies are horrible at the moment. All the sneezing is not helping with my morning sickness. During my last pregancey my symptoms actually went away but not this time...
Avatar f tn My allergies are driving me crazy. Is there anything my doctor can suggest to help with them?
531835 tn?1215615037 I am also not getting rid of my cat. Other than Zyrtec, are there allergy shots covered by insurance that I could take, or other allergy medications that are prescription? My insurance company stopped covering Allegra, which was perfect (bummer). Thanks for your help in advance.
Avatar f tn What can I take for my allergies they acting up real bad ! I know u can't take stuff while u pregnant but what can I take ??
