Shafayet Says:

I am suffering from chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU) since 2005 and taking Levocetirizine 5mg every alternate day. Is there any possibility of serious side effect as i am taking it for long time? Levocetirizine or Ebastine which one will be the better choice for long-term use in CIU?

What has your doctor advised?

There are always risks associated with the long-term use of any medication, including the possibility of organ damage, such as that which may occur to the liver, since most medications are processed through it.

As to which one may be better, it is hard to say, because they all carry the possibility of risks. Only you and your doctor can decide what is right and carries the least risk for you.

Thanks Verwon for your reply.
none of my doctors were able to give me a proper guideline rather most of them are in favour of switching on to another antihistamine. Do you think it is rational? However, i myself decided to reduce the dose as low as possible and increase the interval time as long as my symptom allows.Accordingly i reduced the dose of Levocetirizine to 2.5 mg.and taking it biweekly for the last one month.Well, i am getting satisfactory result till now. i am anticipating to cut the dose further. But my main concern is how long?

Instead of medication, have your mother take you to the tanning bed for 30-minute sessions on 4 consecutive days. Get a little burned and the CIU will disappear and won't bother you again.

I am a physician. I give everyone the same advice and it always works.

was a urticaria patient Says:

I know that feel bro cause I have experienced it for the past 10 months , In this case the reason for your disorder("chronic urticaria is the name") remains unknown even for your doctor. So don't think you doctor cannot figure it out. 95% of cases reasons still remains unknown. I would advise you to change the bedroom , bed , clothes , and one more important thing. 20% of the urticaria patients get it because of parasites in the intestine. If you are in India i would prefer you to take Bandy plus since my doctor prescribed it. Soon it will go bro.
