Dr thought I had hives, put on prednisone 50mg 9 days now, then taper off. Turns out its bed bug bites. Can I stop taking the prednisone now or taper?

I know what the answer is, but this site is for general medical education.

In suffering pretty bad from allergies right now. Should I switch from Claritin (loratadine) to Zyrtec tomorrow?

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 more

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

Since weening off propranolol 160mg for anxiety/headaches ive suffered with acid reflux. Will this stop when ive completly come off propranolol?

Separate problem: Propranolol doesn't treat or prevent acid reflux. The issues are unrelated and their timing is coincidental. Try one of the many over the counter acid reflux treatments and avoid eating within 2 hours of bedtime, even water. Keep your meals smallish. ...Read more
