Itching Withdrawal from Cetirizine or Zyrtec
649 Replies RSS
I want to know how many are suffering from withdrawal from this drug that causes itching all over the body. At the people's pharmacy 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 mon...

Allegra for Hives
2 Replies RSS
I am responding to the person who asked if Fexofenadine would help with chronic hives. I have taken ALLEGRA for about 20 years for Hives. It is the best drug out there! Do not substitute Fexofenadine for Allegra. They do not work the same. Trust me! Try the Allegra! You WON'T be disappointed!!!!! Good luck!!!!!! ## Does the generic instead of name brand really make that much of a difference? Have you experienced depression or vivid/lucid dreams? ## No, Fexofenadine is the active ingredient in Allegra. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and headache. MMama, are those issues you are having while taking it? Are you on any other medications? These medications have been known to cause such issues as side effects, in some people that...

my 8 yr's son's throat is paining. is Relent effective for throat infection or dry cough ? ## What has your child's doctor advised? Relent Syrup contains Cetirizine and Ambroxol, it will not treat a throat infection and may be limited in what it will do for a cough. It's generally most effective at treating allergies. ## Hi, My daughter is having running nose and dry cough for the past one week. We took her to a doctor who suggested "Relent" syrup and "Zyprox" as she had throat infection. However, this is not much of a relief for her. Is there any medicine/syrup that need to be given for her running nose. Thanks ## hi you can gve ur daughter T-MINIC COUGH SYRUP You can also give ZYR COLD COUGH SYRUP this is a cure remedy as i am giving for my kid now ## M...

I'm a concerned dad from jamaica and want to know what histatussin is? ## From what I can discover, Histatussin contains Chlorpheniramine and Ephedrine, it is commonly used to treat cold and allergy symptoms. Side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dry mouth and nervousness. Ephedrine was banned in the U.S., because it can cause cardiac problems, by accelerating the heart rate and blood pressure. Razo D contains 30mgs of Domperidone and 20mgs of Rabeprazole, it is used to reduce the amount of acid the stomach products, to treat conditions such as GERD and ulcers.

Is Ambroxol Syrup Safe For A 3 Month Old Baby
21 Replies RSS
my baby is 3 month old and the doctor adviced him to drink amboxol syrup im wondering why not ambroxol drops is syrup safe for his age with a dosage of 2ml twice a day my baby's weight is 6kls ## Hi ivy, I have read that any cough/cold medication (specifically over the counter medications) can be potentially unsafe for a child under the age of 2. If your son is dealing with a cough or nasal congestion, I recommend giving him a hot bath or using a humidifier in his room... the steam may help to loosen up the cough and clear the airways. If the symptoms persist or worsen and giving him the medication is your only option, then I suppose it would be best to follow your doctor's advice and give your baby the dose that your doctor prescribed. I hope this helps, please post back if you...
