Cetirizine

cetirizine dihydrochloride (1mg/ml) for allergy

I've been using this medicine for ages. I always take it before I go to bed because that's supposed to make you feel less tired, but it doesn't seem to work for me. But this pill is really effective against the allergy.

desloratadine (2,5mg) for allergy

I suffer sporadically with allergies. Mostly sinusitis. On the advice of the GP, I am supposed to take a pill every day. So I'd taken a couple of these little blue pills but then at the weekend I had to go to A&E to get a cortisone injection because I was covered in itchy spots. I also had a mild headache and was short of breath. At that point I still didn't realise that it was all because of t...

desloratadine (5mg) for allergy

From one day to the next I suddenly had a food allergy. A thick throat, swollen tong and other complaints. This might be caused by menopause. The desloratadine alleviates my complaints and helps a lot during attacks.

miconazole nitrate (400mg) for allergy

I used it the first day but it was so horrible, I couldn't sleep, couldn't work well. Its soooo itchy, so burning. Really, why would u put such a medicine on the market and still selling it, yet we who are using it are complaining its the worst vaginial treatment ever. Never to use ever again any of ur meds. My first time and last.

levocetirizine dihydrochloride (5mg) for allergy

7 months ago I started suffering with hives and that's when I started takin levocetirizine 1 pill before I went to bed and within half an hour it worked! Sometimes I can skip 1 day but 2 days is out of the question. Then up come the blisters and pressure points! So happy with this medicine!

desloratadine (5mg) for allergy

I had an itching feeling on my hands for a week when I suddenly couldn’t sleep from an itch all over my body. Went immediately to my GP and got desloratadine. I had to take 3 at once the first 3 days, 2 the next 3 days and 1 a day the next days. The first day big round spots like urticaria appeared and my top lip was swollen. The itch did disappear, however I am never going to take this again!

Levocetirizine

levocetirizine dihydrochloride (5mg) for allergy

I've had bad allergic reactions ever since puberty, such as sneezing, itchy eyes, palate, nose and ears. Runny nose, watery eyes and the feeling of always having a cold. Very similar to hayfever but I also suffer in the autumn and winter. I now take 1 x levocetirizine tablet and have few if any symptoms any more. Someone once told me to take the table before you go to bed so you have less effec...

I have developed several allergies and this helps me manage them. but my experience is that they become less effective over time.

cetirizine dihydrochloride (10mg) for allergy

Absolutely useless. It just made my allergies worse. In one and a half years I had three anaphylactic shocks, all three of which were life threatening. Switched to fexofenadine.

desloratadine (5mg) for allergy

After I'd taken the allergy tablet in the morning I was tired all day and slept all through Sunday. I did try to get up but I just had to lie straight back down again. I even managed to sleep that night and when I tried to get up the next morning it was difficult and I was still tired.

desloratadine (5mg) for allergy

I'm not really very happy with this medicine. I sleep loads after taking it and can hardly do anything because I just want to sleep.

Cetirizine

cetirizine dihydrochloride (10mg) for allergy

For hayfever, changes in the weather, food allergies, etc. Struggle with sleepiness, mostly in the beginning. But because I also take other medicines I also have side effects from them. It's fine.

Avamys

fluticasone furoate (27,5ug/do) for allergy

Really often struggle with a bunged up nose. Was prescribed Avamys and been on it for almost a week. Noticed the difference straight away, can breathe through my nose again. A genuine breath of fresh air. Snore less too. A bit.

Opatanol

olopatadine (as hydrochloride) (5 ml) for allergy

Since I turned 38 all of a sudden I have an allergic reaction to grass pollen. I have extreme difficulty with my eyes: lots of tears, thick eyelids, bloodshot eyes and continual itching. Not to be borne! Nothing helped, certainly not the eyedrops from the pharmacist. Then I discovered Opatanol and I no longer have problems with my eyes. I wear lenses: every morning and evening I put a few drops...

fluticasone furoate (27,5 microgram) for allergy

I've got a nasal polyp which means I sometimes struggle to catch my breath and get panic attacks. I didn't have too many side effects with this spray in the beginning but it's been getting worse and worse every day. Side effects: headache, dizzy, warm, tight chest, shortness of breath. But I don't want to stop because I want to be able to breathe normally again, the other options are cauterisat...

fluticasone propionate (1mg/ml) for allergy

my experience with using these drops is very bad. in retrospect i should probably have distributed these drops more evenly between my nostrils but that's rather undoable. i tried taking them with water but i just ended up standing at the worktop trying to figure out how to empty the capsules by pressing them. but it turns out it's a lot more difficult than i thought and also controlling how mu...

fexofenadine hydrochloride (120mg) for allergy

For as long as I can remember I've been allergic to catkins, grasses, house dust mites and cats. (and a few foods as well, incl. cherries and apricots). TIP: I have 2 good air purifiers and humidifiers at home which help enormously (bedroom/living room)! The medicine works fine, except for my cat allergy - after half an hour I start getting short of breath and coughing which then takes me hours...

As a podiatrist I have a patient who uses took Toctino. She is now losing the nails on both of her big toes. Could this be a side effect? Has anyone else experienced this?

Grazax

timothy grass pollen allergen (100ir) for allergy

Definite recommendation! When I started had loads of side effects like hayfever but they disappeared after 2 weeks. Okay, so I'm a bit more tired than usual but this doesn't negate the advantages I've noticed in my first spring of taking it!! Finally I can enjoy spring again. No more stress with streaming eyes, runny nose or shortness of breath. I don't even need my inhaler any more.
