Hives for 4 days I hve perscribed meds hydroxyzine 25mg, diphenhydramine 25 mg, Ranitidine hydrochloride 150 mg & cetirizine 10mg .. Wat should I use?

We suppress this with those three meds prior to IV contrast to prevent reactions. ...Read more

Allergic : There is some type of allergic response and if those meds work continue to use them. It is important to try and determine the cause as some responses get worse over time and eventually need more than you are using. If labs are not helpful you may need a food elimination and/ or medication elimination protocol supervised by medical provider. ...Read more
