Cetirizine hydrochloride (zyrtec) from online pharmacy?
hi...i used an online pharmacy to buy 180 10 mg cetirizine hydrochloride pills (generic zyrtec...for allergies)...normally they are oval but the ones that came in the mail are round and unmarked. they came packaged in little boxes labeled cetirizine hydrochloride and it has all the info on the boxes and also the bubble packs but ive never seen them round and unmarked before. i just want to make sure that i didnt get ripped off and that they are in fact 10 mg of cetirizine hydrochloride. any help is appreciated. thanks!

  generics never look like the brand name pills.

if you are concerned, call or email the pharmacy and double check that you got the right med, but if the package has good labeling then you should be ok

what is stronger 25 mg of diphenhydramine hydrochloride or 10 mg of cetirizine for insect bite type rash itch?
I have the cetirizine, but if the other would work better, I'd go get the Benadryl

  Zyrtec - second generation anti-histamine. It doesn't necessarily relieve nasal congestion but prevents allergens from causing a release of local inflammatory mediators thus preventing the congestion from happening. The best short term solution would be a nasal corticosteroid for your symptoms but if you have a fever, then a nasal sympathomymetic such as neosynepherine might be better.

Hives... how can I treat this?
As a child, I didnt have hives. 5 yrs ago, I experienced my first hives "attack". It's just my body gradually became itchy... it was so itchy that I had to continuously scratch all over my body. But the more I scratch, the worse it got... in the end I just jumped to the shower and turned the temperature to max. It was so hot but at least it took away the itchiness.

For a while... after I stop showering, I felt the itch again. Anyway where I live, we dont usually go to doctor. We just go to pharmacy and ask for medicine. That's what I did and I bought medicine that treats itchiness. It works.. but do I have to keep taking this medicine for the rest of my life? I take this medicine every 2-3 days otherwise everywhere my body will come itchy and I wont last an hour..The medicine is Cetirizine Hydrochloride.

Also, not sure if this is related... but my skin has become ultra-sensitive since 5 yrs ago.

What can I do?

  Cetrizine is Zyrtec. Benadryl treats hives better than Zyrtec. Benadryl does make you drowsy.
You have some kind of allergic reaction. You should go to an allergist. Sometimes, they can give you shots which will help with the allergy. Also, you can find what you are allergic to, and can avoid it. Whether or not you'll have to continue to take Zyrtec depends on the allergy.

How do make a sudden rash (hives/urticaria) go down as soon as possible? Urgent.?
My prom is on Thursday, and I've never had problems with my skin before. All of a sudden this rash has come up within the last week and I'm currently on a steroid cream and tablets called Cetirizine Hydrochloride which I have to take twice a day. The doctor advised me not to have my spray tan which is booked in for Wednesday evening, however I am wanting to go ahead with the spray tan, as I feel more confident and beautiful with a tan.
Are there any ways that you guys can advise to help my rash go down as soon as possible?
Thank you xxxxx

can i take cetirizine hydrochloride with inderal medicine?

  Yes you can take it. However, there is a minor interaction. You may notice that when you take both of these medications, the cetirizine may make you more drowsy than usual. Be cautious with this for the first few times, to see how it will effect you.

The way that this works, is that cetirizine usually does not make you drowsy because it does not get into your brain. Once cetirizine tries to get into your brain, there is a pump that pumps it right back out so it doesn't make you drowsy. However, inderal can make this pump not work as well, so more cetirizine can get into you brain without being pumped back out.

This is not something to worry about, but just be aware that it is possible that cetirizine may make you more drowsy when you take them together.

This may not be an issue for all people. Just monitor yourself, but everything should be fine.

Any effective home remedies for hives?
I have chronic hives due to allergies, and I'm undergoing allergy shots. I take antihistamines daily (Claritin), and at the advice of my pharmacist, use Ivarest for a topical lotion. However, I'd like a homeopathic treatment for hives. I've tried oatmeal baths, cold wet washcloths, and numerous other ointments with no real relief. Any other EFFECTIVE ideas?

  Try applying a clay mask on a section of skin, then let it stay there for at least 4 hours. Do not use Aveda clay mask, they put so much oil in it that it has no way of drawing oil out of your skin. Try to get a mask that has as little extra stuff as possible.

I won't guarantee this will work, but you can try it for cheap, and there is no way it will hurt you. I get patches of eczema (which is an allergic reaction)and the patch will come back over and over again until I put a mask on the spot.

is it ok to take hydroxyzine and cetirizine together? hydroxyzine at night and cetirizine in the morning?
i was prescribed hydroxyzine for a rash on my skin that has developed (probably from contact with poison oak) and that just seems to knock me out at night. In the morning my grandmother gave me some cetirizine which is also used for allergies, but im not sure of the health effects of having both drugs in one's system. If you know anything about it, please share some information with me. Cheers!

  Your best (and safest) bet would be to ask a pharmacist if there are any interactions listed between the drugs you're wanting to take. Doctors and pharmacists both have access to a database of drug and supplement interactions and they can tell you quickly if you can safely take them together or not.... anyone here will just have a best guess from searching on the internet (which isn't always accurate, as we all know) ;-) Good luck!

What could be causing his hives?
Our 14 month old son had some type of allergic reaction last Saturday. We gave him a cracker with peanut butter on it (first time he'd ever had it) and he wouldn't eat it. Within five minutes of touching it, his face was red and he had hives. He did not have any other symptoms, so we washed him off and gave him some Zyrtec. His face returned to its normal color and the hives went down. On Sunday, the hives were back and he had a diaper rash (he's never had diaper rash before), with no other symptoms. We called his pediatrician on Monday, and they got him in on Tuesday. They gave him a dose of oral steroids and said this would calm everything down. They also diagnosed him with a peanut allergy, prescribed an epi-pen, and referred him to Children's Mercy for allergy testing. Today is Thursday and his hives are still present and seem to be getting worse. When I called the doctor's office, they didn't seem too worried and told me to just give it a day or two, that the hives would go down. My husband and I are racking our brains trying to figure out what is going on. We go for testing tomorrow, but now we're wondering if its a peanut allergy or if its something else. He just started eating a new kind of ham this weekend as well. It has honey in it. Has anyone ever heard of a honey allergy? Does anyone have any suggestions on what this could be? Thanks for your help! : )

How to get hive relief?
I have had hives since April 13th now. On Tuesday it will be 5 weeks. I saw an allergist at 3 1/2 weeks. I was so reactive off of the antihistamines he couldn't do allergy testing. Since going to the allergist I have been taking Zyrtec twice a day, Pepcid twice a day, Benadryl two tabs every 4-6 hours, last 4 days on Singulair before bedtime. I also read fish oil and antioxidants may help so I have been taking those supplements once a day. I have tried oatmeal and cornmeal baths. I fear I have what is going to be chronic hives. I know of a few people that have had to deal with hives for years. I have had back problems off and on since November of 2007. Had a microdisectomy in 5/08, reherniated my disc 5/09, spinal fusion L4-L5 1/12/10. Everything is going fine and my stress was getting better around the time i broke out in hives. A week before I broke out in hives my doctor released me and said everything was going great and I could return to work. So more then anything I was relieved to start getting back to a normal life. I've had a long couple of years and would like any suggestions. I have taking Prednisone which helps but my hives instantly come back after going off of it. I have been using calamine lotion, gold bond lotion, ivory soap, benadryl cream. I have mold in my apartment and am moving in 3 weeks. Could this be the culprit?

Hives on back of head very itchy!?
I have recently broken out with a rash/hives all over my body. It seems every time one spot seems to clear up I start getting red itchy somewhere else...I am on prednisone and generic zyrtec and at night I have been taking benadryl. But the back of my head is always itchy no matter what. Its hard to get a cream of any kind on there because I have somewhat long hair, any suggestions for relief would be greatly appreciated.

Four month case of hives ... please help!?
I have had hives for four months. I have done everything I know possible, short of visiting an allergist (I've a feeling they will just tell me what I've always been allergic to). I've been on two rounds of prednisone, two Zyrtec per day plus two-three Benadryl at night, applying all the allergy creams possible, and no relief. It is particularly bad at present on the tops of my feet, my back, and my scalp. I've changed over to fragrance/dye free detergents, switched back to shampoo, body wash I know I am not allergic to, and nothing has changed. I've eliminated things from my diet - no help.

I don't really see what else an allergist could do for me that I'm not doing for myself short of putting me on shots, but should I just suck it up and see one any way? Are there any herbal supplements I should try in the meantime (I won't be able to see an allergist until June)? I have been so miserable for the past four months - horror stories about chronic hives are just making me paranoid.

What are some reasons a that a person constantly breaks out in hives?
For about 6 years, ive been constantly breaking out in hives and weps. I developed an allergy to dust so i would take Zyrtec for them. But i feel as though there is a greater reason behind the hives. I heard someone say once that the hives can be your body telling you something is wrong.
I do have a constant fatigue and most of the time it takes a lot of effort to speak. My joints are stiff and it often causes pain.
I'd really appreciate your help.

  More than likely you are eating something that is causing a dysfunction in your body somehow. I had hives for 10 years and they went away after I switched to a gluten free diet. Celiac disease and dermititis herpetiformis are two conditions that involve being intolerant to the gluten found in wheat, rye and barley. A doctor can test you for these conditions starting with blood work and usually followed by biopsies. If the tests are positive, go on a gluten free diet and I would expect the hives to go away within a couple of months. If the tests are negative, then try the diet anyway to rule out non-celiac gluten intolerance or an allergy to wheat, rye or barley products. The fatigue and joint issues can also be explained by celiac disease.

Another possibility if the gluten approach doesn't work is to see if you have a problem with the nightshade vegetables which include potatoes, tomatoes, peppers to name a few. These veggies have a lot of different compounds in them that people can react to and one of their side effects can be skin issues and joint pain. This is less likely than the gluten problem but thought I would mention it.

I hope this helps. I know how frustrating and limiting living with hives can be. If you have more questions about any of this, contact me through here.

How long does it take for hives to appear after an allergic contact?
My grandson has recently had hives appear. They did get a new kitten about 1 month ago. Could it be the kitten or possibly another exposure? He also went to a new baby sitter on the day the hives errupted for the first time. He continues to have the hives now even though he isn't going the baby sitter anymore.

  hives can appear from thirty minutes to 48 hours after exposure, so I doubt it's the kitten, or he would have had the hives a lot sooner. That he still has them suggests that it is something he is being exposed to currently, hives don't last much more than a week unless the exposure is ongoing.

Is there a risk of addiction to the paracetamol tablet under the brand name UNIFLU?
Uniflu tabs contains among others (i) paracetamol 500mg, (ii) diphenhydramine hydrochloride 15mg, (iii) phenylephrine hydrochloride 10mg. It is indicated for symptomatic relief from influenza, colds, nasal & sinus congestions, coughing, fever, headaches, allergic conditions, hayfever, etc.

  There is no physiological mechanism by which anyone can become addicted to paracetamol. There have been reports of addiction to combination products where paracetamol is combined with an opioid medicine, but this has nothing to do with the paracetamol component.
Phenylephrine hydrochloride has had cases of addiction however tolerance is more reported and is recognised in most countries as non addictive.
Im more concerned about diphenhydramine hydrochloride which continuous use of this medication can lead to dependency and addiction.

I suggest you seek medical help if you feel you are unable to stop taking this medication

I have hives...again!?
So I have been randomly breaking out in Hives all over for about 5 months or so now, I went to my doctor and she basically just told me it might be an allergy and is almost impossible to determine to what and to take Benedryl and if that doesn't work to take Zyrtec. Well neither is working at this point and they hurt my body, it hurts to wear clothes and they are warm to the touch where I am broken out. I have also been given a steroid 5 day thing which just made things worse. She said I could have Urticaria, but she didn't diagnose me. I need to make an appointment ASAP as I have had the ones I have today for 4 days straight now with no relief. Does anyone have any insight or can you advise what kind of a doctor I should make my appointment with, dermatoligist?

Strange, sharp pain around my nose?
Since last night I've been getting this stabbing, twisting kind of pain inside the top of my nose, at the sides. I have a slight headache also, and just had a massive nose bleed (but I get them frequently anyway). I'm currently taking anti histamines for various allergies (Cetirizine Hydrochloride) daily.

It hurts the top of my nose when I blow it.

  Hives can happen from sweat or heat. Also friction. Hives are red itchy welts. If you get a red itchy,
but flat and scaly rash instead, think about eczema. If they are hives try a low dose of antihistamine before exercise. Like benedryl.

Has anyone had a long term, chronic, experience with hives -- that has lasted for years?
Two years ago I visited a doctor to complain about the spots on my stomach and chest. He said that it was just hives, and prescribed me some topical steroid medication, and recommended some Claritin D. To the best of my knowledge, the hives went away partially, but there were still several spots left that never went away. However about nine months ago I started noticing brown spots that were developing. This time they were not red like before. I visited my doctor and he said it could be a reaction from a sinus infection that I previously had. But they never went away though, like normal viral rashes do. So two weeks ago, the brown spots were still there. I visited him again, We did lab work and everything came back with nothing significant. We did a skin biopsy that showed that the brown spots were just hives again. The doctor has given me a prescription to now take Allegra 180 MG, twice daily. He also said that some people can have hives for decades. Has anyone experienced hives for this long before? Does it always itch? I am a bit concerned about my physical appearance with hives, especially during the summer.

What is the difference between "Children's Motrin" and "Children's Advil"?
When my children have had a fever the "Children's Motrin" very rarely brings down the fever, and I need to piggy back it with Tylenol. When I use the "Children's Advil" the fever starts to break in 20 min. with no Tylenol. They both are a form of Ibuprofen with the same mls.
Here where we are it is very hard to find the "Children's Advil" in any of the pharmacies or stores.

  You are correct that Advil and Motrin are the same product, just different brands of the generic medicine ibuprofin. However, probably the same as with children’s Tylenol (acetominophen), there are different concentration in different preparations so that dosages are completely different depending on if you are using drops, suspensions, elixir or tablets. The most accurate way to determine the correct dose is by the milligrams, not by liquid measure such as teaspoon unless you are sure of the milligram content in the amount and type of liquid you are using.

But you sound well versed in the use of the medication and likely are giving the correct dose. So the next possibility is that separate episodes of illnes create different levels of illness and symptoms and each responds differently to medication and other forms of treating the illness. So an ear infection may respond differently to the medicine than the flu. There are other variables too, such as how well hydrated the child is, what other symptoms are present that the body is fighting, the length of time the symptoms have been present before the med is given, the level of immunity, etc.

You sound like an observant, attentive parent. Hope you all stay healthy!

Question About AntiHistamine Side Effects of Diarrhea/Abdominal Pain (Claritin & Zyrtec)?
I have a chronic hives condition (called Cholinergic Urticaria).

I have taken Zyrtec before, and it provides a little relief from the itching and hives. However, I have recently noticed that it is causing me stomach pain and diarrhea.

If I try claritin, is it possible that I may not get the same side effects? Or will all anithistamines cause stomach pain/diarrhea?

Thanks

Does cetirizine (aka Zyrtec) allergy medication contain ANY stimulants?
I am an allergy sufferer who also suffers from panic/anxiety disorder. Because of the anxiety I stay away from caffeine and stimulants. In the past I have taken Claritin, but my doctor recently recommended I try taking Zyrtec. I want to be certain that I will NOT be trying any medication that may contain a stimulant. So, can anyone tell me if cetirizine (aka Zyrtec) contains any form(s) of stimulant(s)?

Does Cyclosporine work for hives? If so how long did you have to take it?
I have to take Cyclosporine (which is an immune suppressant used for transplant patients) for Chronic Hives. It is not the healthiest drug out there but it's supposed to make my hives disappear. It would be nice to talk to someone who has or is taking this drug for the same reasons as me.

  How on earth did you get cyclosporine prescribed for hives?! That stuff is so dangerous. I guess if you're saying chronic hives, then you must've already tried every NSAID out there, how about corticosteroids cream (i.e. clobetasol, etc)? They're pretty bad on the long term, too, but have got to be better than cyclosporin. They're amazingly powerful for my eczema that nothing else helped.

Can a fever (or the sensation of a fever) be caused by one of these common drug ingredients?
This morning I sneezed a little, and I took a pill -- Cold & Allergy Relief (by CVS). It contains Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride and Triprolidine Hydrochloride. After a couple of a hours, I started feeling feverish and drowsy, so I went to bed.

I noticed that this has happened to me previously. My question is -- did I really have a fever? And if I didn't, why did it feel as if I was having one? Could it be the result of taking this pill? If I did have a fever, did the pill cause it?

Thank you in advance for serious answers.

  This likely happened from the medication.

Pseudoephedrine is a decongestant that can temporarily raise your heart rate or increase your blood pressure. It was likely an increase in blood pressure that made you feel warm. It wasn't a fever, it just felt like one. If this happens often, try a cold remedy without Pseudoephedrine. Coricidin is one brand name that doesn't contain any decongestants and they market it for people with high blood pressure.

Triprolidine is an antihistamine with a side effect of drowsiness which is why you felt sleepy.

I have a 10 year old bedwetter. The pediatric urologist has prescribed Sanctura.?
From what I'm reading, it says it should not be given to children as adequate studies have not been done on its safety for children. Have any of you given this drug to your children? This happened once before with a drug she prescribed, and when I checked with my pediatrician, he said it's used all the time in children, and it's just a labeling requirement. Any feedback you can provide to me would be appreciated.

  All I would like to say because i am not familiar with this either is that you should monitor your childs intake of fluids from the time he has supper until bedtime. Do not allow him to have sodas and juices and large amounts of water before he goes to sleep. If he goes to bed at 9 p.m. don't let him drink past 7:30 and tell him to use the bathroom before he goes to sleep. Practice this with him every night. I know it's more than just that but it can help, and will help in the future because unless there a medical condition, which there may be, this child needs a strict regiment on his intake of fluids every evening and I'll bet you see quick changes!

Hives????????????????
I got hives 5 days ago and finally got the chance to see a doctor
today, he gave me a cream and said that my hives are fine they'll
be gone soon with the use of the cream. I forgot to ask him if I
should keep taking Benadryl to see faster results. So I have no
idea should I take Benadryl and apply the cream as well? Thnx
It's cause of my dog...

  It's a wonder he didn't give you an antihistamine to take. Were you able to deduct what caused the hives, in case it's something you ate that you were allergic to?

I would keep on taking the Benadryl until they go away. Does the doctor know you are taking them? You should have asked him about that. You could ask a pharmacist.

Unusual rash?
I have a nasty rash which is getting worse.
The rash started on tops of both feet and around my ankles (all my searches for feet rashes come up with rashes on soles of feet).
It has spread up my legs – but the spots get bigger.
It is also on my arms – again the spots are bigger.
They feel a lot larger than they look. They are quite raised but do not look like hives. The rash on my feet looks like a lot of small red raised dots. It is itchy but not intensely itchy except at night when it is worse.

A fortnight ago I was out the back doing a bit of gardening and I sprayed some plants with bug spray – the rash appeared the same day.
I have contacted the makers and they have assured me that their product would not have caused a reaction.
I visited the doctor about five days later and showed him the rash on my foot. He seemed very disinterested. He prescribed a hydrocortisone cream. I have used it all to no affect. I have been taking Piriton – no difference. Today I bought Hayfever and Allergy Relieve (cetirizine hydrochloride) and took it before I went outside.

I sat outside the back of my house in the sun for half an hour today and it got worse. Not long after I’d been sitting I began to cough and sneeze.

In my garden I have lettuce growing, coriander and mint.
I have some tomato plants in pots (that I re-potted yesterday and the day before and the rash didn’t worsen).

I also have some flower pots with various plants eg daisies, marigolds etc.

First came the hives, a month later the fever.?
My mom has had hives since 4th of july, 3 rounds of steroids, hydro zine, visits to the doctor, and nothing has gotten better.
Actually its gotten worse. There are more hives, from the waist up.
She was taken off all medication and switched back to the old blood thinner, we thought it was the arixtra, but it isn't, nor lunesta or prozac.
But then earlier today, she got a high fever, and now its 3:30 am, still not sleeping and high fever. And her diberticulitus is acting up, which it hasnt done in years. She hasnt been exposed to anything new, nor eaten any seeds or anything now to cause the hives and diberticulitus.

Does she need to go to the ER, or just continue to be misurable and itchy?

Please post advice nurse fone numbers if you have any, or to any advice nurses online.

  There is a genetic link, but the risk to your future children is actually quite low. About 1 in 100 of the population have ulcerative colitis (UC). If you have a relative with the condition, this goes up to about 3 in 100 (3% chance). Even among identical twins (who share identical genes), where one twin has the disease, only 6% of the "normal" twins went on to develop the ulcerative colitis. Most people live reasonably normal lives with UC and surgery to remove the large bowel can cure the disease if it can't be managed with medication.
Primary sclerosing cholangitis is a much rarer disease, but people with colitis are known to be at higher risk. The outcome for this condition tends not to be so good, with most people developing liver failure after about 10 years and needing a liver transplant. The genetic risk of this condition for any future children would be very small but the disease itself and/or the implications of a liver transplant could possibly affect fertility. Hope this helps.

I need relief from my hives?
Okay well I've had hives since December and they go away after 2-3 weeks of hell :( but then after a couple of days they come back and its making me go crazy!! I've gone to a family doctor and I've had a blood test and he says I'm allergic to cockroach eggs, grass (I don't remember the exact names), fungus, and cat hair. He checked foods but not the ones I told him and they all turned out negative and he gave me Zyrtec. Its been one week and I still have the hives on my face(which is getting better as we speak) and I have them on my lips! which bother me the most the and the last few days my mom has told me to try carmex- for cold sores, and I don't know if its really helping, I usually use vaseline and its fades the rash a little and makes it go away after a couple days. Should I continure to use the carmex and if I shouldn't can anyone please give me suggestions Also should I just go to specialist? I really need help people what kind of medications seem to work best? i'm goin crazy!
Okay I don't know if I have cold sores I think they are rashes on my lips my mom just told me to take Carmex- for cold sores but I want to know if anyone knows if that really helps or not. Can someone tell me if Carmex really helps or not and if it doesn't I'll stick with the Vaseline! I have taken Benadryl which was not much help. Should I go to a specialist or should I just stick with the family doctor?? And give me some suggestions for medications please

if you have cat/s you might have to get rid of it
as for cockroach eggs?
take up the carpet in your bedroom
wash the bedding frequently
get the carpet in the house cleaned/sanitized at least every 6 months
carmex soothes the lips but doesnt cure hives or cold sores
apply calamine or caladryl lotion to the hives

Children's medicine and Asthma.?
Is there any reason that asthmatic children should take a certain type of children's medicine for fever and/or cold and cough? I'm sorry if the question seems a little confusing but my fiancee's daughter had a fever and he gave her advil, her mother calls saying that she can only take motrin because she's asthmatic. I know ibuprofen can cause allergic reactions and cause problems like asthma to flare, but ibuprofen is in many children's medicines for fevers and pain.

Which is better for food allergies and eczema? Benadryl or Claritin?
I need to keep a box just in case I get an minor allergy to food (hives), or if I get an eczema episode because of external triggers (soaps, weather, etc.).

Of course I have creams for eczema, but my doctor suggested I use an anti-histamine to help with relief.

  It sounds like you do not take antihistamine on a regular basis but only when you experience symptoms. In this case I would recommend Benadryl as it is a recommended drug for this. Personally, I carry the children's chewables with me just in case I eat something I shouldn't. The chewables can be taken anywhere anytime without water. They don't taste bad either. You need to double the dose for adults. They only problem is that it can cause drowsiness.

Benadryl also makes a cream for hives.

Head pain with allergy medication?
I've started to take allergy medication to combat my allergies. However, ever since I started taking allergy medication I've started to get these weird head pains, which feels like my head is building up pressure. It only happens when I am moving around, like walking. If I am sitting still then I'm alright and my allergies don't bother me. The allergy medication is a generic brand from Target and the active ingredient is cetirizine hydrochloride 10mg. Supposedly its the same active ingredient in Zyrtec. Is this a common side effect? Should I be worried?

  Stop taking that medication immediately. The symptoms you are having indicate that you are allergic to something in that generic med (possibly the coloring or other additives). You need to try something else, but in the meantime take a dose of benadryl (50mgs or 2 pills) ASAP to counteract your reaction. If you have really bad allergies you need to see an allergist, you can still take otc meds but you need to find out exactly what you are allergic to in the medication so you don't have a repeat reaction. Good luck!

What can I do to help my allergies? I already get allergy shots, and the medications I have tried don't work?
I had to go to the hospital a few times because of my allergies so I started getting 2 different types of allergy shots...so I have to get over 18 shots a year...not fun. They help A LOT....but I still have bad allergies...mostly runny/congested nose and sneezing...I mean like sneezing fits were I will sneeze 5 times in a row, and sometimes my nose will be so plugged that I can't taste my food and I loose my appetite. I have tried cetirizine hydrochloride and pseudoephedrine but they don't seem to work...and the pseudoephedrine makes me feel really weird. So what other medications should I take? What are some other things I can do? Ohh...and nasal sprays don't work...not even prescription ones...they only make it worse...I have tried at least 5.

  I had the diagnosis of allergies for the first time ever in my life this year. I was given a steroid shot (did nothing) and then told to take Claritin (sold over the counter now). After taking the Claritin for a week and a half, I could miraculously breathe again and felt 100% better. I highly recommend you go buy the generic brand of Claritin called Loratadine at Walgreens or Walmart. I, like you, couldn't smell, was congested constantly, and felt horrible. You have to keep taking it though. It takes at least a week to start working and then just keep taking it. I guarantee this will work for you! I am now allergy symptom free and feeling wonderful.

Good luck.

  Yes, it works just fine. Children's motrin is simply a lower dosage. You may need to take more to relieve your symtoms or you may be fine because you only need a low dosage for your cramps.

  I've had chronic idiopathic hives on and off since 2000. There is nothing that I am allergic to but some things will trigger them. Not all hives will go away forever and my medical team does not seem to know why mine don't. I take a drug cocktail of anit-histamines to keep from having my entire body covered with them, but have some almost daily somewhere on my body. For me, I have been on different combinations of anti-histamines over the course of 7 years that work for a while and then stop. No one knows why the ones I am on are working now, how much longer they will work or whether they will stop working. The combination of the two you are taking are obviously not managing the hives well if you are getting them back the very next day. But, you don't say whether they are returning if you don't continue the medication. I will certainly have a complete meltdown if I so much as miss a dose of any of my medications and will be covered head to foot.

Son has hives everywhere and swollen joints?
I'm at wits end here. First and foremost: My son has an appointment with his pediatrician tomorrow, and has also been to an urgent care center, so please know that I am attempting to get him help! :) And sorry--this will be long.

Three weeks ago, my son broke out in hives and his feet swelled so badly, he couldn't walk. I took him to a childrens' urgent care center, and the doctor said the hives and swelling were an inflammatory result of an illness. Turns out he had strep throat, so he was put on amoxicillin for 10 days, Orapred as needed (for swelling) and Benadryl every 6 hours for the hives.

His strep throat got cleared up, but in the mean time, he has been breaking out sporadically with more hives, and they're everywhere. There's no rhyme or reason to this--nothing seems to trigger it. Last night, he started saying his knee was hurting and I looked at it and sure enough--more hives everywhere, and they spread to his face this time. He had a huge hive on the inside of his right knee, and one large one on the back of his knee. They actually spread to his face this time. This morning, the swelling is gone from his knee, he has just a few hives (mostly on his legs) and he was otherwise fine. I noticed about 15 minutes ago that his feet are swelling again, and he has a large spot on the instep of his right foot. He said he hurts and he has to walk on the side of his foot.

Has ANYONE had anything like this before? I've looked up stuff online, but I'm looking for personal experience. Thank you!

P.S. He's fine otherwise--that's why I haven't taken him to the ER. All they'd do is give us more steroids. He's not feverish, flushed, refusing to eat--he seems normal in all other respects.

  It's NOT liver poison! Childrens MOTRIN is just an ibuprofen syrup. Advil is a ibuprofen tablet.

There is 100mg of ibuprofen in 5mL of the mortin. So for every capsule of advil u would normally take, have 10mL of the syrup. So for example if you take 2 tablets, take 20mL. Make sure you have something in your stomach though, because it can be upsetting to the stomach. If you have taken Advil before with no problems, then childrens motrin should be ok for you.

Sleeping off migraines is often good to. So take your medicine, and then try lying in a dark , quiet room. Migraines can be draining- good luck!

  Tarceva is not a radiation pill. It is a tyrosine kinase inhibitor which is an epidermal growth factor receptor. Put plainly it blocks the ports of certain receptors and will not let them grow. Tarceva is not for women who are pregnant. You should be fine around children but you may want to take precautions as the drug is systemic and may be excreted through sweat, saliva, etc.

Is it safe to give my 7 month old children's Tylenol rather then infants tylenol?
The only reason I ask is because my 7 month old already weighs 24lbs and that's the weight it starts at with the children's tylenol. Also if that's ok, is it also ok to give her children's motrin?

  You have to make sure you read any and ALL directions VERY carefully. Children's Tylenol and Motrin are not concentrated- like the infant's varieties are, so dosing is very different and important to read.

Also, both Children's and Infant's Tylenol and Motrin are on recall now, so you will not be able to buy name brands- store brands of Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Motrin (ibuprofen) are all that's available now.

Claritin and alcohol, is that a good combination?
I took a children's Claritin, non drowsy, pill 24-hour relief, and a dissolved tablet a few hours ago. Is it safe to drink a couple of beers as long as I don't overdue it? I'm talking about less than a 6 pack of beer, just to kick back and relax. It is 24 hour Claritin.

  Claritin doesn't make you drowsy anyway and its a once a day pill. You can drink a couple of beers if your couple is the same as everyone else's and only 2 beers.

How to make hives that come from the sun go away?
I got overheated, not I have hives or something that looks like it. How do I make it go away or how long does it take for them to go away naturally?

  Hives usually go away on their own within a few days to a few weeks (especially if you can avoid whatever was causing them). If you get hives, taking one of the over-the-counter antihistamines (like Benadryl or Chlor-Trimeton) will help them go away and be less itchy. But beware: These medicines can make you sleepy.

Hives are different from a skin reaction like the rash you might get from touching poison ivy. While that type of rash involves just your skin, hives involves your entire immune system. That's why you have to take a pill to get rid of hives, rather than just putting cream or lotion on your skin. back to top

How severe do the side effects of Lupron Depot have to be before I report it to my Dr.?
I Took My First shot of lupron depot about 3 weeks ago to treat endometrious. My Dr gave me a lower dosage trial month to see if I could tolerate the hormone. So far side effects haven't been as bad as i had anticipated. However, i have had severe aches in what feels like the bones especially in my legs and arms. I have been diagnosed with migrains and have had a light headache everyday for the past week and a half. Also, I have experienced some daily nausea and my moods haven't been all that stable but even that has been at a minimum. I have to decide soon if I should go on the stronger dose for three months or not. I'mm concerned because every other therapy I have tried including diet and homeopathic has not worked. I'm tired of sufferring from this and just want some relief. The only other options I have are live with the pain or have a hysterectomy. I'm only 28. If any one has any insight please let me know.
By the way my Dr. is an ob/gyn and fertility specialist. I currently have two children and am divorced. I am not sure if i want more children in the future. Just tired of the pain.

  First, I'm sorry you have Endo and are dealing with all the Lupron side effects. A few things...

1) A one month dosage will not indicate anything. The patient must go into clinical flare - about the 3rd month - before her hormones are truly suppressed and any benefit the drug might (and I stress *might*) have kicks in. If you are feeling this poorly only after the first shot, it is unlikely your side effects will decrease with time. Many, many women continue to experience negative and long-lasting effects for years after the cessation of therapy as well.

2) The dosages are the same - the difference is they are broken down either to 3.75 mg over the course of 6 months or given as the 11.75 mg dosage, given over 3 months. One is not necessarily more effective or tolerable than the other, and any doctor saying differently is outright lying (or is just one of the many docs on the take from TAP [http://www.jco.org/cgi/content/full/23/34/8894]) - there is no clinical or pharmaceutical data whatsoever to support such a claim.

3) I strongly suggest visiting and reading the following articles, even if you can only relate to them a little bit. The information therein is invaluable to any Lupron user:

http://www.endocenter.org/pdf/PreDiagnosisGnRH.pdf

http://www.endocenter.org/pdf/surgery%20vs.%20gnrh.pdf

4) Hysterectomy isn't a cure, and you have options. Your best bet is to check out a specialty surgery center such as Dr. Redwine or the CEC at http://www.centerforendo.com and http://www.endometriosistreatment.org. There on those sites you can learn about excision, why GnRH and other medical therapy is only temporarily helpful if at all (and potentially harmful) and look into getting your case evaluated by a renowned expert for free. Help is out there and you don't have to live with the pain and subpar treatments being offered to you.

I also suggest visiting http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/EndoDocs and http://groups.yahoo.com/group/erc for information and experiences, ideas, helpful hints and support from others who have been in your shoes.

Lastly, any side effect that is intolerable should be reported to your doctor - there is no schedule or requirement as to how long a patient must wait before she brings such complaints to her physician's attention. If he or she subsequently ignores or minimizes that patient's complaints, that patient should think about finding a new doc.

Good luck and remember you are not alone with this.

PS "fertility specialist" does not = "endometriosis specialist." Most fertility specialists are not interested in anything other than bypassing the Endo to achieve pregnancy, not in actually excising and removing the disease through advanced surgical techniques. Many fertility specialists worth their salt won't even treat Endo, instead preferring to send their patients to specialty Endo centers for definitive treatment first (which often resolves the infertility) before placing their patients on any IVF or ART protocols.

  You should see improvement in about 1/2 -1 hour of taking claritin (often even less) if its allergies. We use it and zyrtec-there are lots on the market-these two are good because they are non drowsy. Colds can go on seemingly forever in little kids. Why dont you take him back to the Dr for a checkup if youre worried? There is plenty of good advice about for managing allergies but the first step is to get a correct diagnosis from your Dr. You can make life unnecessarily difficult trying to manage 'allergies' that your son may not have.
Good luck-I hope he's better soon.

I got this in an e-mail from a friend. I tend not to believe what has been forwarded to me...but this worries me. Some of these medications are in my cabinet...
I guess I should call the med. companies and inquire if this is true, but I was wondering if anyone else has heard of this recall...
And how seriously I should take it....... I don’t want to over react but then.....maybe I should???
Oh! one more thing.... does anyone know if this 'problem' has already been taken care of?.....

  Some people have success with Zyrtec. The other thing about zyrtec is that Walmart, Sams Club and Costco and most drug stores all carry a generic version of it which is cheaper. You may need more than just an allergy medicine. Some allergists prescribe singulair, and I had success with serevent or advair in controlling my hives. I had hives for 10 years and they went away when I went gluten free. I was on a gluten free diet for a month and stopped taking meds and the hives have never recurred and I have stayed gluten free since then. The gluten free approach won't work for everyone but it does work for some so might be worth trying. Gluten is found in wheat, rye and barley and things made from them.
Good luck.

  Not "addiction" per se. You were experiencing rebound congestion from using it more than a few days.

How long ago did your doctor start you on Claritin and Nasonex? It takes a bit of time for the spray to work.

Give yourself a couple of weeks. If it doesn't work, he will want to give you something stronger, i.e. Zyrtec (which is over-the-counter now), or put you on Allegra (also over-the-counter).

Benadryl is far too strong. Your sinus will clog and you'll fall asleep during the day.

Been sick for a month, taken antibiotics yet still very sick! Help!?
As stated from the title, I have been sick for 3-4 weeks. It started as a simple sore throat and now I'm waking up in the morning with stuffy nose, a runny nose / constant sneezing throughout the day, and congestion at night with on and off coughing.

I went to the doctors about a week ago and today is my final day for taking my antibiotics which were prescribed to me since the doctor claims I have an ear infection. I do not feel that I am getting better at all one bit. He did not prescribe to me any other medication, and I don't know what to do. I have been taking Equate™ severe cough and cold medicine from off the counter for about 2 weeks ever since it started, and stopped after I realized it wasn't really working. I've also been drinking ThermaFlu powder drink medicine for Day and Night, which although provided a little relief, still did not solve the problem entirely.

I also have to add that before I was sick, I was constantly taking Zyrtec off the counter about every other day due to a Chronic Hives condition. What's strange is that ever since I had my "cold" or "ear infection", I have not been getting any Hives breakouts. I usually get raised red itchy bumps all over my body about everyday (without medicine), and every other day (with medicine). I'm starting to have thoughts that my sickness is actually allergies, which I have never experienced before with the current symptoms. I haven't taken the Zyrtec that I use for hives in over 3 weeks and I'm not sure whether or not there is a need to take it.


If anyone has any suggestions or advice for me, please post. I am really hoping forward to ending this terrible "cold" and gaining back some weight and good health. Thank you :)


P.S. : I have also experienced several symptoms during my cold which I have not experienced in the past before. These include :

- Ear feeling stuffy after blowing nose. One of my ears just randomly feels very stuffed, and at times I am unable to hear well.
- Constant , Constant feelings of sneezing. I always have the feeling that I need to sneeze, but am almost never able to unless I stare at a bright light. I'm not sure if this is because of the congestion in my nose, or the mucus inside my nose triggering a sneeze nerve, etc..

  Your problem is that you are taking medicine with fever reducers (Equate and ThermaFlu)

If your body has a fever, it is good in the sense that the fever will kill the bacterial organisms / virus. When you take fever reducers, this prevents this from happening. Fever reducers may be necessary for when a fever is too high, or for when you have to go to work, but you need to let your fever run its course.

  Lincomycin hydrochloride is mainly used for fighting respiratory tract and soft tissue infections.

there's another type: It is indicated for the infections due to Staphylococcus,Streptococcus Pneumococcus and anaerobes. It may cause enteritis of pseudo-menbrane after prolonged administration. Patients with hepatic insufficiency should use prudently.

Lidocaine hydrochloride is used as a pain reliever. Lidocaine (lignocaine) belongs to a group of medicines known as local anaesthetics. Lidocaine acts to block temporarily the pathway of pain impulses along nerve fibres. This relieves or prevents pain in the area where it has been injected. This preparation is injected to provide local anaesthesia for minor procedures, such as dental surgery.

Never had the diarrhea problem with it. You can try your doc for a xyzal prescription. It's very much like zyrtec, but supposedly has fewer side effects. It's not OTC yet.

  Wygesic is more along the lines of Vicodin. It is a narcotic "diluted" with acetaminophen, (tylenol.) The brand name is Darvocet.

What is the difference between loratadine and cetirizine dihydrochloride?
I've tried using both for my allergies. It says one is used to treat symptoms but loratadine is used to treat the whole allergy. Are there any other more effective choices that aren't too expensive?

  Loratadine is Claritin and cetirizine is Zyrtec. They are both anti-allergy medication. They both treat the whole allergy. They are in a class called the anti-histamines. These medications are your best bet. Clarinex is another one, but it's no more effective than Claritin or Zyrtec. Just make sure you drink plenty of fluids when you take them, because they can dry you out a little. If the allergies keep up, go see your doctor.

kariyack: @weaveittome the advil congestion relief doesn't do that to me. Just kills/dulls the pain and gives me pressure relief. Works quite well.
