Dantrolene Allergy In Children
Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
Dantrium (dantrolene): No, but you can get liver toxicity at high dose. ...Read more
Why have I never heard of dantrolene until reading it here? Is it an older medication w/ better-known side effects? Benefit for cervical spondylosis?
You can take it.: Dantrolene does not cause direct toxicity to the digestive tract, and therefore can be used with a history of Gerd and/or ulcers. Having said that, it can cause digestive tract side effects, including nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramping, and diarrhea. If you need it for a particular reason, just be alert for the possibility of G.I. side effects. Good luck. ...Read more
Is it safe to use dantrolene if i have gastric ulcer?
would it be better for me to take injection?
Hepatotoxicty: I am assuming that you are not taking Dantrolene in an emergent life-threatening condition. If so the injectable form should be used. Otherwise, Dantrolene pills has a potential for hepatotoxicity. It should be safe to take with gastric ulcer unless it is very severe and actively bleeding and you are not allowed to take oral medications. ...Read more
Is dantrolene efficient for sphincter contraction that won`t let stool pass after malignant hyperthermia .Diazepam is not working?
Malignant hypertherm: Dantrolene is a treatment for MH that should not be needed for long-term therapy. If you are having post attack muscle spasm, a muscle relaxant like robaxin (methocarbamol) may be more helpful, but perhaps you need to be on Danteokene longer until symptoms subside. Your pain specialist or anaesthesiologist should be able to help with that ...Read more
Had malignant hyperthermia and my doctor used lexotanil.My legs improved but still can`t pass stool due to constricted muscles. is dantrolene better?
Good luck: Malignant hyperthermia is a very rare illness and it is a life threatening illness. Hospitals keep specific medicine available for such events. We used to share the medicine between three rural hospitals within 10-20 miles radius. What we used to have was dantrolene. What I am trying to say is that hospitals usually do not have many choices. They have to use what they have. You might have same reaction anyway. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Exposure + Genes: One needs both a genetic component and "exposure" to a said allergen to develop an allergy. There is a growing support over the past 20 years, that growing up in an environment which is "too clean" can also lead to development of allergies down the road. Either way, allergies are on the rise. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Allergy tests: There are several types of testing. Some involve certain types of blood tests. Another method is to do a series of skin tests done by pricking the skin and applying different allergens. Other tests are provocative tests that can involve challanging the patient with allergic materials. Testing should be done by doctors specializing in allergy to obtain the best results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Skin & blood tests: Prick testing with allergenic extracts or fresh foods can help confirm allergy, as can blood tests for specific ige antibodies (rast-type tests). However, both types of testing can produce false positive results, and confirmation with food challenges may be needed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not exactly: The ability to react to certain proteins in an allergic way is passed on from parents to their children, but a specific allergy is not. So if a mom is allergic to pollen and the dad is allergic to fire ants, their child may develop allergies but it may be to a food instead. If 1 parent has allergies, the child is 50% likely to develop allergies, but it's a 75% chance if both parents are allergic. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
