It does not specify if you should be taking this food on a full or empty stomach which I believe means that it can be taken either way unless your doctor says otherwise.

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 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...

The Old Actifed

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 reformulation....it'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...

My son is 9 yrs old and weighs 89 lbs. How much Brompheniramine-DM should I administer and how often can I give it to him? ## What is Brompheniramine-Pseudoephedrine-DM syrup used for? I cannot remember why it was prescribed and my daughter has phlegm and is congested. ## Is this a prescription or over the counter syrup that you have? The active ingredients listed (Brompheniramine and Pseudoephedrine) are found in a lot of OTC and RX medications. Because of that the dosing instructions will vary based on the specific brand and there should be something listed on the bottle.

Bromphenir Pseudoephed DM syrup

Does this medication help relieve fluid in ears? Can it be used nightly for 1-2 weeks to help eliminate fluid in the ears of a 55 lb, 5-1/2 yr old? ## The active ingredients listed (Brompheniramine and Pseudoephedrine) are found in a number of medications. One brand is Bromfed-DM syrup (NDC 54868-6377) which also contains Dextromethorphan. It's a combination cough suppressant, antihistamine, and decongestant for treating symptoms of the common cold, flu, & allergies. In reading the product label (PDF) for Children's Dimetapp Cold & Allergy (which contains Phenylephrine instead of Pseudoephedrine), it says that it is not indicated for children under 6 years of age. It sounds like your son is pretty close to the minimum age. What I'd recommend is getting it cleared by ...

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.

Apetito Cyproheptadine Tablets - How do they work?

No improvement after taking this tablets, how should i take them to see changes on me? ## Cyproheptadine is actually an antihistamine, which is commonly used to treat allergic reactions.

Lee's save the baby. Where can I find it?

The is in a clear bottle with a red screw on cap. The liquid is yellow in color It has oil in it that separates and goes to the top when bottle sits. To use run the bottle under warm water and shake to mix. Applythe warm liquid tothe child's chest and under nose to relieve symptoms of croupe. Instead of placing a drop under the nose you can also place it on a pillowcase or sheet. ## It was made by the Lee's company and yes, it is patent protected. The reason it is no longer available is that it contained Camphor, yes, even in the liquid that was taken internally and the FDA has recognized this as being unsafe. Camphor is now only approved to be used topically. As to the other ingredients, I am sorry, I have been unable to discover that. Does anyone else know anything about this?...

Rare gram positive cocci

One of my cultures from my gums returned with rare gram positive cocci and I want to know what it symbolizes as well as anymore information about this result? ## Gram positive cocci are a group of bacteria which can be identified by their shape and Gram Stain color. According to wikipedia, "a coccus (plural cocci) is any bacterium or archaeon that has a spherical, ovoid, or generally round shape.

Cetirizine false positive for methamphetamine

I take random urine drug tests for dcbs and I took one the other day and it came up positive for methamphetamine and I haven't taken anything except for allergy pills (cetirizine 10mgs). However, my worker said that wouldn't cause a positive urine drug test. ## I took an allergy pill and I had a drug test for a new job so I'm wondering if the allergy pill is ok because the medicine contains cetirizine? Please let me know. Thank you so much. ## I am also wondering - Can it make you fail a drug test for methamphetamine? I do not use any or take any drugs. I only take the meds Atorvastatin which is a cholestrol med, Cetrizine for allergies, Neurontin, Meloxicam for arthritis, and breathing meds: one for COPD and another for asthma. Can any of these make you test positive for me...
