My feces were covered in a white mucous texture, is this bad? Im 5 days clean off oxycodone,on suboxone now & take zoloft (sertraline) & adderall, from meds maybe?
Probably not: most likely related to the opioids, but sounds like it could be irritable bowel syndrome, which sometimes was called "mucus colitis" because of mucus coating of stools. If it persists, talk to your PCP or your buprenorphine provider about it, particularly if associated with cramps and alternating diarrhea and constipation. ...Read more
In suffering pretty bad from allergies right now. Should I switch from Claritin (loratadine) to Zyrtec tomorrow?
Yes : Yes, you should! Zyrtec in my clinical experience works better, the trade off is that it's a little more sedating than Claritin. If sleepiness is a problem, then take the Zyrtec at night before bed. Hope this helps! You may need a nasal spray if this doesn't do the trick. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Here is the issue: You are under another doctor's care. Once I direct you how to discontinue this medication, I have now interfered with the care you are receiving.

I get headaches from allergies. Can i take Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec at the same time? Claritin (loratadine) didn't work alone when i traveled away from home.
Yes, but: Both Claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec (cetirizine) are new generation antihistamines. While there is no harm to using them together, there is likely no added benefit either. The most effective treatment for nasal allergies is the topical nasal steroid sprays such as qnasl, flonase, veramyst, nasonex, (mometasone) etc if a person doesn't have relief with an antihistamine alone. ...Read more

Taking zyrtec (cetirizine) & sudafed for allergy symptoms from eustachian td. Sit/stand symptoms are gone. When i lay down though, my inner ears & body itch. Why?
Allergies?: Technically, the inner ear shouldn't itch, but the middle ear behind the eardrum can itch. Seasonal allergies can frequently present with body and middle ear itching, at least partly due to widespread histamine release in allergic reaction, even once the eustachian tubes clear and equilibrium is back to normal. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
