Can I Take Zantac And Levocetirizine
Is diflucan safe? I take a beta blocker and have occasional palps. Also take zantac, xyzal, (levocetirizine) and anusol suppository. Any of these mix badly?
Nsaids gave me very mild hives in the past & allergist wants to desens me by having me take a baby aspirin a day at home. I take xyzal, (levocetirizine) zantac. Safe?
Will taking daily xyzal (levocetirizine) & Zantac help protect me from allergic reactions to meds? Am allergic to so many now that I'm afraid of everything.
Xyzal (levocetirizine) & Zantac: Xyzal (levocetirizine) is an antihistamine & zantac a stomach acid reducer. While the former would be helpful with drugs that elicit a histaminic response the latter would help with drugs that inhibit prostaglandins (eg. Nsaids). There are various other pathways that lead to drug effects and side-effects, therefore xyzal (levocetirizine) & zantac would not offer universal protection against drug side-effects. Indeed no drug will. ...Read more
Is one dose of Diflucan safe, if I'm on a beta blocker, xyzal, (levocetirizine) zantac, and suffer from palpitations? 42, vaginal yeast infcn, OTC cream not working.
My allergic drug reactions usually consist of hives. Now that I take xyzal&zantac, am I at least somewhat protected from drug reactions if one occurs?
If a person pre-medicates w/xyzal & zantac, (ranitidine) can they take an nsaid drug, if that drug has caused minor hives in the past? Get skin reaction only.
Possibly: Both xyzal (levocetirizine) & zantac have anti-histamine effects & may decrease or eliminate a mild reaction to nsaid. However, this can be dangerous. Repeat exposures to something you are allergic to can be more severe, including breathing & swallowing difficulties, swelling of the face, lips, tongue or mouth. 6 classes of nsaids exist; you may not be allergic to other NSAID classes. An allergist may help a lot. ...Read more
