is periactin a steroid
1 Reply RSS
So is it not a steroid based drug? ## Hello, McDaniel94! How are you? No, Periactin contains the active ingredient Cyproheptadine, which the FDA classifies as an antihistamine, it's actually most commonly used to treat allergic reactions. Its typical side effects may possibly include dizziness, dry mouth and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?

349 Replies RSS
I want to know how many are suffering from withdrawal from this drug that causes itching all over the body. At there is an article about this very problem yet Zyrtec doesn't list the information on their web site. This is my third attempt to get off of this med and I'm going crazy from the itching. ## If you take any medication for a long period of time, you will experience some withdrawal effects. This is just as true of allergy medications, as it is of any other. One of the most common withdrawal effects are rebound effects, so for an allergy medication, this can include itching. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? ## I keep getting itching after this. Not had it before, but it's the first time I've taken the medicine for more than a month (aro...

can mucinex dm and lisinopril be taken together
1 Reply RSS
Can MucinexDM and Lisinopril be taken together? ## Hello, Patsy! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between the two, however, you should check with your doctor, before you take the Mucinex DM. Some decongestants can elevated your blood pressure and raise heart rate, so it may not be safe for you to take it. Coricidin has a line of products you may want to look for instead, they are labeled HBP, so you know they are safe to take, if you have high blood pressure. Lisinopril is classified by the FDA as an ACE inhibitor and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increase urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

sinutab--where is it?
13 Replies RSS
I have been trying to find Sinutab, have they quit making it? Why? Was the best allergy relief I found. ## No, the manufacturer still lists a page for it and it being available. It contains Acetaminophen and Phenylephrine. There are actually many products on the market that contain this combination, both generic, store and name brands. Have you tried perhaps asking your pharmacist what else might have the same stuff in it? ## I have, also, been trying to find Sinutab sinus caplets. I called the manufacturer and they said it is no longer sold in New York. There is a K-Mart store in Trenton, New Jersey still carrying it.No help to me. ## I have been looking for Sinutabs in Columbus, Ohio. I also have been trying to order them on line, but no luck. ## I called the manufacturer on Jan. 12 a...
