Zyrtec side effects long term use

Common Questions and Answers about Zyrtec side effects long term use


Avatar m tn Have you discussed long-term use of Nasonex or a similar mometasone steroid spray? They tend to work, are often used on an on-going basis, prescribed for infections and allergies, and provide effective relief. As for your question about Zyrtec - talk to your pharmacist (and your doctor - a couple opinions do not hurt) about the dosage you are taking and what the long-term side effects are.
Avatar n tn It works very well (I feel about 90% better) and I have no side effects. It says it is effective against hives as well. Also I saw these advertisements: www.hivotin.com and www.hivotab.com I really hope your problems will improve. Good luck.
Avatar f tn These include hot or cold weather with low humidity levels, long-term use of air conditioning or central heating, and washing or bathing too much.Apply hypoallergenic moisturizer to the body part where you itch.application of calamine lotion is also helpful.It soothes the skin. Other conditions cause itchy skin as well.
Avatar f tn His symptomes were severe but he is slowly getting better. What are the long term effects of this disease on a young child?
Avatar n tn Since many of us are finished with therapy, or close to it, it would be nice to compare short and long term after-effects as we proceed along the path to recovery. It sounds like most of us are experiencing at least some noticable symptoms after tx. My biggest problems are skeletal: joint pain in neck, back, hips, and recently in small joints: fingers, elbows, ankles, etc. I also have shoulder pain and numbness, similar to peripheral neuropathy.
Avatar f tn And it is safe, not a cause of significant liver disease, and not associated with other side effects, deemed serious. To the best of our current knowledge, the long term use of a nasal steroid, as directed, does not pose a problem. However, if your symptoms diminish during certain seasons, you may not and should not take the drug during those times. Singulair and inhaled steroids are complementary in the treatment of asthma.
Avatar f tn My doctor told me I should use Pulmicort indefinitely. When I've asked if there are any side effects or risks of using it long-term, he said no and was rather dismissive of my questions. I can't afford to pay for another office visit when I know he will just insist that I keep using the full amount. However, I'm wondering if I should not be using fully concentrated Pulmicort at such a high dosage.
Avatar n tn as sweet as sugar, but no surge in insulin; as sweet as sugar, but no side effects or long-term health damage has been reported. Whereas few very rare side effects has been reported like dizziness and numbness, diarrhea, swelling, muscle aches, headaches, intestinal cramping, bladder issues, and stomach pain in those who are allergic or sensitive to the sucralose molecule. Whereas your case seems to be chronic rhinitis or allergic rhinitis wherein excessive mucus is produced by the sinuses.
Avatar m tn I always try to find alternatives to long term steroid use due to the potential side effects. Good luck.
Avatar f tn If it were my children, I would look at each of these drugs, and I would google side effects from long term use as well as withdrawall and I would try a more gentle natural way. Some docs work with diets instead of meds when possible. I hope you can figure things out.
Avatar f tn Could this be a result of a medicine I am taking? Coinsidentally, 2 years ago I started taking ADHD medicine which has side effects of dry mouth (leading to bad breath?). I guess I am wondering what steps I can take to get rid of the white coating and bad breath? I do not have poor hygiene-again I brush at least 2 times a day,use tongue scrape, mouthwash, and obsessively chew gum/mints. But after brushing my teeth the white coating/breath issue is not solved.
Avatar n tn The respiratory risk is both immediate -- poor control of asthma and long-term -- the progressive loss of normal lung function. Seriously consider smoking cessation. You may want to look at our Quit Smoking Topic Center at http://www.nationaljewish.org/topic/smoking_cessation.html for ways to help you quit smoking. Also check with your doctor for other quit smoking resources in your area.
Avatar f tn I have a cat on .25 ml drops every other day. It will most likely be long term. Should I be concerned....I like my vet, but am very leary about drugs. He has a crippled front leg and has walked forward for his entire life....he is 13. He has developed gingivitis and cannot have any work on his teeth or any type of procedure requiring anesthetic. His internal organs have all come forward and are pushing on his lungs and heart.
Avatar f tn okay went back and did some hunting. this is a quote: "there are many side effects with using pain meds for cats however based on all avail info at this time the ones with the fewest side effects and safest for cats are the following..... Buprenorphine(buprenex) Butorphanol(torbutrol, torbugesic) Tramadol(Ultram) Fentanyl(duragesic) probably the worst one I've read about is metacam, this one can cause blindness among other problems...beware, many Vets still use it!!
Avatar f tn With this drug there can few side effects like excitation, irritability, nervousness, paradoxical excitement, restlessness etc. You can go for the long term therapy; side effects will not be matter of concern except for mild sedation and sometimes headache. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist for more info and prescription. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn Anti-histaminic and/or Leukotriene Receptor Antagonist (may be added if not controlled by antihistamines) will help to relieve the symptoms. You can go for the long term therapy; side effects will not be matter of concern except for mild sedation and sometimes headache. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist for more info. Take care and regards.
1684282 tn?1505701570 Some patients in intractable, chronic or cancer pain need to be on long term opiates under close supervision of a physician. However, pharmaceutical companies have been successful in persuading the FDA in not scheduling tramadol, also known by its brand name Ultram, as a non-controlled substance. Its mode of action is often described as "unknown", even though it is already well know that it acts on μu receptors just like any other opiate drug.

1653132 tn?1301855906 And with the high dose treatment, the long term side effects could lead to some serious health consequences. Not to be taken lightly, specially when you feel this way and you're more vulnerable. Please go to the "ask a patient" website to read some of the comments. My suggestion is to deal with your urticaria from a different perspective. You have done the medical circuit, tried a lot of different drugs. However,Urticarias in general are Energy based conditions.
Avatar f tn It takes care of all of my chronic asthma conditions and I use an emergency inhaler for when I have a trigger that causes an attack. Check your side effects. I know for a fact that Singulair can cause ear ache and chest infection as well as other annoying side effects because I have had them, I got off of the medication because I didn't see improvement, my friend stayed on it and loves what it does for her. My mother in law is on it and loves it.
Avatar n tn However, the dermatologist has told me not to continue the use of these steroids, as they can have serious long term side effects, and my problems has returned again. For one week I have been on a medication called itraconazole but I have not noticed any improvement yet. I have recently noticing a large number of small, red dots at my lower chest and groin area, which gets itchy when my body temperature rises.
Avatar n tn Also some medications used to treat migraines can exacerbate this problem, and you should look up your medications and their possible side effects. The only common cause of painful heartbeats is probably pericarditis, or inflammation around the lining of the heart. It is usually better with sitting forward, and worse with laying back. It is usually benign, and has no long term consequences.
Avatar n tn i was taking clonozapam, wellbutrin and adderall when i found out i was pregnant at 6 weeks pregnant and i discontinued use. i just use breathing exercises to calm myself down if i feel a panic attack. i just focus on my baby. get a new doctor because clearly yours is an *******. i'm now 14 weeks pregnant and i've already heard the baby's heartbeat. my dr isn't worried a bit. i think i'm going to get back on the wellbutrin in my last trimester.
Avatar n tn Yeah I know Predsisone his a horrible drug but only use short time like me 7 days and it help for me, I have a really severe allergy, and I use Reactine and Benadryl, I have no choice because Im allergic to water, how can you avoid water :S I have to use the Epipen too, I have no choice, and Im a nurse and I know the side effects of the Prednisone I gave it to so many patients....
702091 tn?1228423719 My 26 month old has been sick for 6 weeks now, and when I brought her in after 4 weeks of waiting it out and doing everything you mentioned too, I was told it was allergies and to use Zyrtec (even though I had already tried other antihistamines to no avail), and then finally after 2 more weeks of no improvement and a worsened cough, we just now got an antibiotic (Zithromax). Ridiculous to have to wait so long! Anyway, if it hasn't been a week yet, I wouldn't freak out just yet.
Avatar n tn Is this kind of inhaler considered safe and are there side effects for long term use? She is also taking Zyrtec, Sudafed, Delsym, and a sulfer based antibiotic ( I think pedizole). SHe also has a sinus infection. She is only two years old. Are all of these medications safe to take together and are there any side effects? She has rarely been sick with colds, viruses, and has never had an ear infection. She does, however, have these chronic allergic/asthma problems.
Avatar n tn Is there anyway for a two year old to be tested for asthma? Is this kind of inhaler considered safe and are there side effects for long term use? She is also taking Zyrtec, Sudafed, Delsym, and a sulfer based antibiotic ( I think pedizole). SHe also has a sinus infection. She is only two years old.
