Allergies, Cough & Cold Overview

Ciplactin And Dexona
Sir i take these 2 tablets since 3year.Now i stop to take this .so please tell me what is the side effect of it. ## Withdrawal symptoms are probably going to be very different for everyone, so I can only speak based on gathered research: There have been reported cases of psychotic syndrome after withdrawal of Cyproheptadine (Ciplactin), so I would suggest tapering off this one as opposed to just stopping it completely after all those years. I would also strongly recommend taking your time tapering off of Dexamethasone (Dexona) or you could have some very unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. I don't know the specific details of what one might come to expect, but I'd imagine it to be similar to the list of side effects for each medication. Learn More: Dexamethasone Details Cyproheptadi...

Itching Withdrawal from Cetirizine or Zyrtec
I want to know how many are suffering from withdrawal from this drug that causes itching all over the body. At peoplespharmacy.com 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...

diphenhydramine sleeping tablet
It a small round plain white tablet. I'm would just like to know the mg before taking ## Hello, Crystal! How are you? I can't tell you anything about it without some markings or something to go by, if there aren't any, we can't even be certain of what the tablet contains. That said, Diphenhydramine is actually not a sleep medication, it is an antihistamine that can cause drowsiness as a side effect, that is often augmented when Acetaminophen is added, so it is often used to help induce sleep. Do you know anything else about the tablet you're questioning?
