Is a humidifier helpful to Aleve (naproxen) allergy simptoms at night?

HUMID AIR IS GOOD!: Humid air is good for most inhalent allergies. The best is warm humid air, hence the reason that swimming is a good sport for people with mild asthma. Conversely, very dry cold air will worsen symptoms.

Unlikely: It is unlikely that is could be due to Aleve (naproxen). You may have sinus pressure from allergies or a sinus infection. Other causes of facial pain could include Temporomandibular joint pain or trigeminal neuralgia.

I have chills and slight nausea. What medicine should I take- Aleve for the bad fever or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for the allergy?

I have chills and slight nausea. What medicine should I take- Aleve for the bad fever or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for the allergy?

Perhaps both: You could take both but you didn't mention any specific allergy symptoms. Nausea could easily be a symptom of infection. And chills are not a symptom of allergy. In that case Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will only make you sleepy. It's not a very good medication for nausea. Take your Ibuprofen and go to bed.

I'm taking Aleve (naproxen) for mild knee injury. While getting allergy shots will it minimize reactions? Can it mask reactions? Should I let my allergist know?

Yes. A simple phone: Call to your Dr's nurse with the above info and a call back number, if needed, can be the easiest way to get word to Doc.Aleve (naproxen) should not affect your allergy shots in any way.

Quite possibly: The reaction you describe certainly sounds like an allergic reaction to something you ingested, possibly the aleve (naproxen). Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids) are fairly allergenic, and you develop an allergy to something at any point. So if the timeline to your symptoms fits with aleve (naproxen) ingestion, I would be highly suspicious. Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for acute relief of current symptoms.

What should I do if I have an allergy to naproxen sodium?

Use other NSAID: Don't take any. However, there are other nsaids that you can take. Do not take Ibuprofen as this will cause a similar allergic reaction.

If I have an aspirin allergy, with gastritis, why does naproxen not cause me problems?

What are the: Symptoms? It could be rather an adverse drug reaction to aspirin and not a true allergy. If you do have true allergic reaction to aspirin, you better avoid all the NSAIDs, including naproxen, as you may very well develop a reaction later. Follow up with your allergist, or see one if you haven't already, check acaai. Org or aaaai. Org for an allergist in your area, best wishes

My wife has developed a sudden allergy to nsaids and can no longer take naproxen, ponstan etc for severe period pain. Are there alternatives?

Acetaminophen: Acetaminophen is available over the counter. Other pain medications will require a prescription. Consider using a birth control method to suppress periods. If she does not have periods then the pain will not come. Birth control pills, nuvaring, the depoprovera shot and Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud are all options.

56 year-old woman notices radicular pain after taking vitamin B6 supplement for three years.....?

56 year-old woman notices radicular pain after taking vitamin B6 supplement for three years.....?

B6 toxicity is well recognized: There are a few questions that need to be asked in this case. Exactly how much B6 was the patient taking? According to recommended standards 200mg daily is the limit. Toxicity is thought to occur at levels of 1000mg. Daily and above though much lower have been reported on rare occasions (100-300mg). Secondly, what exactly was the quality of her pain? Described symptoms of neural toxicity involves sensory neuropathy described mainly as burning dysesthesias and numbness. The case talks about a RADICULOPATHY. That is typically not the same type of pain as we find in chemical toxicities. Pain in the feet could very well be dysesthesias but the history could be a bit more specific there in order to attach more positive points for B6 sequelae. Http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih.
