I decided to get off Hydroxyl Pamoate to see if I could wean myself from all drugs. I had lost 40 lbs and was eating a much better diet - no meat, very little chicken and fish - mostly salads, raw and steamed vegetables. Eliminated processed foods and stopped eating bread. After 6 months, I thought I should test getting off Hydroxyl Pamoate. Within 4 days, my skin broke out in an itchy rash, especially my hands but I'm stubborn and thought it might get better as time went on. I'm experiencing dizziness. Have to sit on edge of bed until my equilibrium comes back. I get dizzy when I bend down to pick up something and when I make a sudden move. If I continue with this itch, I may stop the experiment and take cetirizine HCL 10 mg tabs. This is the substitute my doctor has prescribed because my insurance discontinued covering Hydroxyl Pamoate. I wish I was drug free but if the itchy rashes don't stop, I don't know what else to do. Maybe a natureopath? All these side effects kind of scare me and reinforces the concern that these drugs have bad side effects.
