Histodor Cream
2 Replies RSS
Is histodor cream good for Eczema? ## Both of the active ingredients found in this medication are in a class of medications called antihistamines; which work by blocking the action of histamine, a substance in the body that causes allergic symptoms. That said, although Histodor Cream (Diphenhydramine + Mepyramine) may help with some symptoms of Eczema, it may not be the best solution for complete overall treatment. This is because Eczema is not caused by allergies. It is more over due to a hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy) in the skin. The condition tends to get worse when the person is exposed to certain triggers. Most causes of atopic dermatitis (eczema) are treated with medications that are placed directly on the skin or scalp (called topical medicines). A mild cortis...

Body Is Unbearably Itchy From Iron Infusions
3 Replies RSS
I received iron infusions in the spring of 2016...Here it is December of 2016 and I am suffering from severe itching mainly on my lower legs and also my arms. I have not been told by a doctor that this would be the price I have to pay for building up my iron. I believe that I was given way too much. I have been to a skin Dr, Hematologist, had several blood tests, Etc. I wish that someone can come up with an answer. I would truly appreciate it... Thank you so much!!! ## The NIH and FDA both warn that some side effects caused by iron infusions carry the risk of being permanent, including body aches, and joint pain. It really doesn't have anything to do with being given too much, it's just the nature of how it works in some people's bodies. Does anything help alleviate the itch...

Does this pill make you high? Found this on the floor of my home and I have teenagers. I'm concerned. ## Hello, Dee! How are you? No, this is an over the counter product that is listed as containing 25mgs of Diphenhydramine, it is a generic or store brand of Benadryl that's used to treat allergies and insomnia. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, drowsiness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Haha. It's allergy medicine. Take a chill pill. Literally.

e c oblong light blue pill

Oblong light blue pill w/the letters E C on 1 side & blank on the other side. Trying 2 figure out what it is?? ## Hi Guera, According to another discussion thread here, someone else was searching for this same exact pill description and they reportedly identified it as a 25mg diphenhydramine tablet. This medication is an antihistamine used for allergies, but also doubles as a sleep aid. While I haven't been able to verify this identity, it is the only relevant match here on MedsChat. Have you considered taking the pill into a local pharmacy to see if they recognize it? Hope this helps!

5 Replies RSS
I found this in my teens bedroom. What is it exactly? ## This is an over the counter medication containing 25mgs of Diphenhydramine, a generic or store brand of Benadryl. ## it is a little blue pill that has L431 on one side ## What will happen it you take the blue pill with L431 printed on it? Like what are the side affects? ## It's an antihistamine, it's for allergies. Although some you people do take them in large amounts for a euphoric feeling, although they usually get dizzy and fall asleep. ## It's an over the counter sleep aid. That doesn't really work.

i can't sleep , because please give me the name of sleeping pills ## What country are you in? I can't be sure what's available for you, without knowing this information. In the U.S. there are some available over the counter and others that require a doctor's prescription. Many of the other the counter ones contain Diphenhydramine, which is an antihistamine that causes drowsiness as a side effect. One of the most popular prescription ones to use is Ambien, which is only used for a short period of time. ## Choosing drugs is not final solution i sometimes sleep from 4am to 6 am 2 hours a day sometimes i cant sleep just lie in bed but i never resort to drugs. what i do for sleep is this buy a good fan which is silent preferably table fan or standing fan. cover your body with...
