... suggestions? I have high blood pressure, Hepatitis B, and very bad allergy symptoms. I need medication to control the year-round itchy throat and other allergy symptoms. I am looking for antihistamines that won't increase blood pressure, affect liver, and driving. Chlorpheniramine Maleate 4 mg causes marked drowsiness for hours. Loratadine 10 mg may cause liver damage. I have tried Sudafed, Chlorpheniramine, and Loratadine and many, many other meds, I need help to find the right medicine that will provide allergy relief without the three side effects mentioned above. Your input will be greatly appreciated.
ask your doctor if you can take vistaril. I was prescribed this to help with anxiety but its a antihistamine. Look it up if you want. I also have allergies. I take one a day and I feel fine. I felt a little sleepy the first 2 days then I was fine. I can actually visit my with family who have pets and not worry about my eyes closing up. haha
well hope you find something that works.
i have dust and humid allergies,,, i encounter it so many times and it give me more head ache,, bec when it occurs runny nose and eyes itching and eyes watering always thre what give me more,anxiety to all people.. so my doctor advice to take ,artiz anti histamine,,10mg its ok for me hope its also good for you.
I find that OTC allergy eye drops sometimes help with the rest of the allergic reactions in my body (nose, itchiness, etc.). I've even put a little on a q-tip and put a bit in my ears for itchiness there and that works for me too. BUT I have no idea how it affects blood pressure or anything else. You might want to check out this route, but ask your doc or pharmacist. Also, what about prescriptions like Nasonex or other nose meds? I don't know about their ingredients. Good luck.
I suffered allergies for decades. But when I changed my diet to Paleo (low carbs, high quality fat) to reverse my heart disease—besides the added benefits of loosing 40 pounds—my allergies also disappeared!
Yes this is tangential to the topic but I recommend reading "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration" by Weston Price. Change you diet accordingly and within a few weeks to a couple years your doctor will be able to get you off most medications.
I hope, in the mean time, you find the meds that will give you the quality of life you seek.
