What is best for chronic sinusitis? Allega d, Claritin (loratadine) d or zyrtec d

What is best for chronic sinusitis? Allega d, Claritin (loratadine) d or zyrtec d

Probably neither: The medications that you describe are all antihistamines. They rarely are effective in eradicating an inflammation that has been present for 3 months (definition of chronic sinusitis). Even if allergy is part of your problem, these medications are not very effective. A better anti-inflammatory drug that might help temporarily is prednisone. ...Read more

Is it ok to combine Claritin (loratadine) d with nyquil?

Is it ok to combine Claritin (loratadine) d with nyquil?

Yes but why?: Claritin (loratadine) d is a non-sedating antihistamine-decongestant combination used to treat allergies. Nyquil is used to treat common cold symptoms. It also may contain an antihistamine and decongestant, but the antihistamine is often sedating. This would not be something to use for allergies. Thus, using both would be a 'strange' combination. ...Read more

Can I take clariton d and zyrtec (cetirizine) d together?

Not a great idea: There is likely no added benefit of taking these two medications together. The real question is what kind of symptoms are you attempting to treat. There are other medication that can treat nasal symptoms that are better than antihistamines with decongestant including intranasal steroid sprays. See an Allergist if you would like more guidance on what combination of meds can improve your symptoms. ...Read more

Can one mix Mucinex (guaifenesin) d and Claritin d?

Can one mix Mucinex (guaifenesin) d and Claritin d?

NO!: Both medications have "d" - Pseudoephedrine 120mg. This is a potent constrictor of blood vessels and the dose of 240mg (of both medications) needs to be spread over 24 hours. Even 120mg cause quite a bit of side effects. You can use i tablet with d and the other without. ...Read more

Will Claritin (loratadine) d help congested headache?

Yes : It helps treating your symptoms temporarily. If congestion persists and headache becomes worse, you should see a physician to get proper diagnosis and treatment and to prevent it from developing to chronic sinusitis, which is more complicated to treat. Cold/flu like symptoms last 1 to 2 weeks. Allergies last longer and recur more often. ...Read more

Is mucinex (guaifenesin) sinus (new) better to use then Mucinex (guaifenesin) D (orange)?

Is mucinex (guaifenesin) sinus (new) better to use then Mucinex (guaifenesin) D (orange)?

Different: Mucinex D contains Guaifenesin 600mg (for cough) and Pseudoephedrine 60mg, while Mucinex Sinus Max Day has Guaifenesin 200mg, Phenylephrine 5mg, and Tylenol (acetaminophen) 325mg. I generally recommend Pseudoephedrine over Phenylephrine for nasal congestion so my personal preference would be Mucinex D. But if you have a fever or pain, Mucinex Sinus Max would be good if you don't want to take Tylenol (acetaminophen) separately. ...Read more
