711326 tn?1297868510 They have me on mobic, zyrtec, zantex and ultrium for pain. Embarassed to say but lately it seem like I am dried up and not able to produce any CM even when it comes to BD'ing. I've read great reviews on it but wonder if anyone has tried it here and had any luck.
Avatar n tn ve taken antihistamines such as Claritin and Zyrtec as well as decongestants like Mucinex. If those did not help, you should consider allergy testing to see what you are allergic to. If severe enough, your allergist can start you on allergy shots.
Avatar f tn Need advice, anything to help the congestion. My nose has been stuffy for a good two weeks. I have awful allergies, so I've been taking zyrtec. After that didn't help, I talked to the doctor, they told me to take mucinex and sudafed. Took those and still stuffed. Took antibiotics thinking it was an infection and I received no results. I am 5 weeks pregnant since yesterday and wondering if it has anything to do with the pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Sometimes I use plain Sudafed(no antihistimine in it) and plain Mucinex together when I am out of Mucinex D. Every time it takes 2-2 1/2 weeks to recover, but I am able to recover with no dr. visits. I have done this for a year now with good results. Now that I am well again, I am back on my zyrtec and regular medicine regiment.

Avatar m tn It does sound like allergies to me. Try an antihistamine such as Zyrtec, Claritin, Allegra, or Chlor-Trimeton. You can try Benedryl but it tends to cause drowsiness more than the others I mentioned.
Avatar f tn My docs list says one benadryl a day is safe.. also you can take sudafed, zyrtec or claratin also. If you get a lot of mucus you are allowed to take the plain mucinex. I've personally used mucinex and zyrtec. Also, only regular tylenol is safe. I hope you feel better!
1524212 tn?1291837200 My doc said to use zyrtec for a cold if you have afib, which I do. Most antihistamines will up your blood pressure causing worse fib action. Have you ever had shock treatment? I'm thinking about it.
Avatar m tn Suggested I try Claritin or zyrtec to see if allergies are triggering all of this. Claritin is helping a lot with the post nasal drip, but now the junk in my chest seems tight and I have a dry, unproductive cough. Should I try mucinex to loosen up the chest and continue with Claritin?
Avatar m tn You may be able to use a once a day antihistamine like claritin or zyrtec which have fewer systemic side effects. Also guifenasin (robitussin or mucinex)which loosens the secrections in throat and chest can be helpful with colds without affecting dry eyes so much. Just some general comments - discuss situation with your doctor to see of claritin and mucinex might be something that you could possibly take without affecting dry eyes too much.
1663704 tn?1302912377 I have had fluid behind my eardrum since September 2010. My physician looked and saw fluid behind my eardrum and said it's caused from allergies or sinuses. I do have allergies and postnasal drainage. I was prescribed Flonase for 30 days, which didn't work, then prescribed a 7 day steroid medication, this didn't help either. I have tried Allegra D, Mucinex D, Mucinex, Sudafed, Sudafed PE, Afrin, etc. I am currently trying Zyrtec.
Avatar m tn Been treated for sinus infection with antibiotics, Nasonex, sinus rinses, Zyrtec, store brand mucinex. Run humidifier at night and gargle with salt water. Desperate!
Avatar f tn He gave me 875mg of Amoxicillin-twice a day for 10 days along with ZyrtecD and Mucinex. I finished the antibiotic and one of the others at the same time. Two days later, I was still coughing--post nasal drip. I had finished all the meds so I bought some more Mucinex and started that again. In another 2 days I was still had post nasal drep so I started Claritin. I have been taking the Mucinex and Claritin for a week now and still can't get rid of the post nasal drip.
Avatar m tn t know right now I take both zyrtec and singulair in the evening. I think I will also try the Mucinex to see if that helps. I do get some relief from taking Tussionex cough syrup. Kind of strange but opiates tend to thin the mucus production and it seems to numb my throat where I don't feel the PND or whatever it might be.
Avatar m tn m allergic to Allegra-D, and Zyrtec makes me feel like a zombie. Hot water with lemon seems to help my throat, but it seems the condition just doesn't want to go away, no matter what I do. Is there any medication that actually works reducing swelling, inflammation, etc..... All suggestions/experience appreciated. Oh and allergist told me to take aspirin when my throat swells, but aspirin doesn't help either.
Avatar n tn I have had post nasal drip as long as I can remember. I am a 52 yr old mail, 5'9", 195lbs. My PND gummed up the back of my throat enough in July of this year to wake me everytime I nod off. I am now on sleep medication, clonazepam, Lunesta, now but which is barely working, Atavan is better and I can sleep but sedatives cannot be taken forever and this PND doesn't seem to be going away.
Avatar n tn I stay away from most allergy medicines which are drying and take Mucinex which thins mucus. I also drink a lot of water or tea. I think the nerves in my head get set off more because of my MS so when my sinuses get set off it starts a whole thing ( but that is my theory not medical ).
Avatar f tn Mucinex, Sudafed, claritin, benedryl and zyrtec are the allergy and cold medicines my Dr has listed on the paperwork he gave me about medication that is safe to take while pregnant.
Avatar n tn I can not breathe out of my nose and when i can its only out of one nostril, and sometimes it switches, well i have tryed everything, all the sprays, pills like zyrtec, allegra, claritan, back in september i went to an ent specialist, he said i had a deviated septum, so i had the surgery, well its februaary now and i still cannot breathe, I even tried a neti pot, i do not know what to do, in my nose theres like nothing there no mucous or anything like that, but most of the time it is breathing
Avatar m tn I went to an allergist and found out I have allergies ( to pollen, grass, dust, and pets) so I began taking Flonase, Zyrtec, and Mucinex D, but this did not help either. Upper GI tract test came back normal. Thyriod gland test came back normal. Chest x-ray came back normal. I'm otherwise healthy. Please someone help!!!!!!! What else could be causing my throat problems and what should I take for it??????
Avatar f tn I'm taking meds for the same thing. Talk to your dr, my dr says mucinex and zyrtec and tylenol cold and flu is ok and doesn't harm fetus. But everyone is different so check with dr before taking!
645800 tn?1466860955 My insurance will not pay for Singulair at all. Rinsing my sinuses with saline and taking Mucinex. I take a lot of Mucinex this time of year. I used to take Benydrl and Chlortrimeton but they dried me out and impacted the mucus. I now hardly even need my Symbicort much less Albuteral. I used to have to sleep in a recliner. Eating was a bear because of choking. Now I can't recall the last time I choked. I still have a lot of symptoms this time a year just not the coughing.
