What can cause shortness of breath, when albuterol doesn't work, these are real physical symptoms not anxiety. Have tried albuterol, corticosteroids, allegra-d, nexium, prozac, muscle relaxers, and claritin-d.Have seen doctors and specialists inluding pul

Well : Well presence of allergies, hyper inflated lungs on cxr and dyspnea suggest asthma. You can have normal pfts (pulmonary function tests) ad still have asthma.I am not sure you have been tried on but usually you need blood test or skin test for allergies and a total ige level ( blood test). You could try inhalers on regular basis for example advair or Dulera on twice a day basis and see if this will help you symptomatically. Some times treatment of asthma can become difficult and will need some patience at your and your doctors end. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Can you take Claritin d and allegra together?

Can you take Claritin d and allegra together?

Yes, but why: Claritin and Allegra are both new generation antihistamines while the d is pseudoephedrine, a decongestant. Typically one or the other medication should be sufficient, although there are no drug interactions or side effects. If you think you need both, see an allergist for a better treatment plan. ...Read more

Need help docs! my allergies have been really acting up. I have always used alegra but its not helping. Would Claritin d be better?

Allergist can help: Sometimes people become insensitive to an allergy medication that has worked for them in the past, and they may need to switch. Going to one that includes a decongestant can have other concerns, as some people are sensitive to them and it could even raise blood pressure. An allergist may be able to offer stronger prescription medications and nasal sprays, and possibly prevent future problems. ...Read more
