Okay: A number of medications should be discontinued prior to allergy skin testing. Steroid nasal sprays like nasonex (mometasone) may be continued. Otrivine is a nasal decongestant which should only be used for temporary relief of symptoms may be continued. Escitalopram and inhalers and nebulizers may be continued.

Yes and Maybe: you can take Zyrtec (cetirizine) along with Escitalopram and a probiotic. It will probably help if your symptoms are due to allergies.
