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...

how long does chlorpheniramine stay in your system
2 Replies RSS
My sister is getting married on Saturday. I took a spoonful of Hydrocodone / Chlorpheniramine ER and was wondering if I could drink beer at her wedding on Saturday? I take 5 milliliters every 12 hours. ## It is the Hydrocodone that is the main concern here, since it is known to react with alcohol far more than the Chlorpheniramine, according to FDA reports. It could cause you to experience more severe side effects than usual, such as dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, sedation, and headache. Unfortunately, you did not list the time frame in between drinking and taking the medication. Can you post back and be more specific? Thank you! ## how long does it take 10 ml of chlorpheniramine maleate to stay in your system?

Relent Syrup
12 Replies RSS
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...

What is Histatussin?
10 Replies RSS
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...

Itching Withdrawal from Cetirizine or Zyrtec
645 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...

Escitalopram and Cheratussin AC
1 Reply RSS
I have a horrible cough and found some Cheratussin AC cough syrup in the cupboard... I took two tsps and then remembered that I am now on Escitalopram... Will I have any problems combining the two? ## According to the University of Maryland Medical Center ( / drug interaction tool), there are no interactions listed between Cheratussin AC and Escitalopram. This does not necessarily mean that no interactions exist, however, I have no reason to believe that the combination is unsafe based on my own investigation. Nevertheless, it's always a good idea to consult your prescribing doctor with any doubts or concerns before moving forward. Hope this helps!

The Old Actifed
72 Replies RSS
I'm looking for the old formulation of actifed. Are there any countries that still sell it? I know you can use it to make drugs, but it's the only thing that works for me (and it helps me sleep too). I would not have ANY problem having the FBI at my house if I could get some. They'd be sitting on my shelf just exactly like my 16 bottles of shampoo, 42 bars of soap and 18 boxes of bandaids (I'm not a hoarder, I just hate running out of stuff...and stupidly, before that stuff went away, I didn't buy a ton of it). The stuff they sell behind the counter is a's different. ## John, Did anyone ever respond to your posting with a solution of how to find the old actifed? I stock up on stuff and want some, too. I just took my last one today. ## I looked...

Lagundi during pregnancy

Is it safe drinking lagundi syrup even if I'm in my 4th week of pregnancy? My throat hurts. ## HI, Nette! Congrats on the baby! As to Lagundi, since this is an herbal product, not an actual medication, it hasn't been studied to see if it's safe to use during pregnancy. It would be best for you to see your doctor, before taking anything, to make sure that you only take something that is safe and won't harm your baby. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a cough and cold and I'm 3 months pregnant...what medicine should I take? I cant sleep because of headaches. I did not consult a doctor yet. ## Is Lagundi syrup safe for pregnancy?? I'm on my 5 month now.. ## Hi i'm 35 weeks pregnant and i am taking lagundi ascof 300 mg and salbutamol sulfate 2 mg....

Drixoral Substitute
50 Replies RSS
Great news! I have FINALLY found the substitute for Drixoral Cold & Allergy and wish someone had told me before I had to suffer with allergy symptoms for so long. It's a combination of one Mucinex DM tablet and one Aleve-D Sinus & Cold tablet; take one of each at the same time and within an hour you'll feel like a brand new person! Mucinex DM is an OTC expectorant and cough supressant and Aleve-D (an extended release medicine) can be found behind the counter (you have to ask for it and show ID), but I found both at Walmart. I know the name brands cost more, but do not bother buying substitutions because they simply will not work; since Drixoral has not been available, I already have tried soooooo many that didn't help at all. Good Luck and I hope this works as well f...

I used to take Propan with Iron (Capsule) multivitamins since 1997 in the Philippines the time I was so thin so I take 1 capsule in each day after breakfast until I finished 30 capsule and i gained weight that time. At this that Im married to a thin guy, that he was so thin maybe because he was a hard worker working 12 hours, as a Carpenter.

Now that this Propan with me on my hand, i dont know how to start, i mean how to give him like is it 1 capsule in a day a...
