I'm on metoprolol, benicar, omeorazole, allegra, synthroid, and ativan. Will any of these cause liver kidney or electrolyte issues? Or cardiac issues?
Unlikely: I guess the answer depends on whether you are a glass half empty or a glass half full person. You are not likely to have any of those adverse effects from the medications you listed, however there is no medication that is not associated with rare liver toxicity, and several of the medications on the list might have some of the other side effects you listed.

Yes: Any medication can cause problems if taken in excess. Though I am not familiar with specific symptoms regarding Allegra overdose, most of the time, patients will have vomiting, abdominal pain, or headaches. I would imagine that liver problems might occur with too much Allegra as it is a medication that is broken down by the liver. Bottom line: don't do it. ...Read more
My skin has been itching from quite a long time. I have takena lot of medicines but could not find a permanent fix. I took cetrizine and allegra 180 for over a year. What should I do?

I found out I am 5 weeks preg. I was on meds prior to finding out. I used coltsfoot tea, allegra, singular, mucinex, nasonex. Will this harm the fetus?
Probably not: Singulair and Guaifenesin (mucinex, not with d) are quite safe. Allegra is a pregnancy class c drug, but there don't seem to be no known bad side effects. Nasonex is fine. Coltsfoot tea has been banned in some countries because it contains tiny amounts of chemicals that can cause liver damage and cancer. Still, the tea may be safe, but the fda has determined the have indeterminate safety. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many reasons.: Allegra is an antihistamine which can be used for itching of the skin, nose, eyes. It is mainly used to treat allergic reactions and to relieve seasonal allergic eye and nose symptoms.
