Doctor insights on:
Nasal congestion, sneezing. Taking Flonase, antihistamine and pain relief. Looks like a big bump blocking nasal package. What could it be?
I am taking isoniazid. Is it bad to take it at the same time with Flonase or other antihistamines?
Drug Interactions: There are no documented interactions between any of the three medications mentioned.
Can you take 180mg of antihistamine and a nasal spray such as Flonase while on 25mg of zoloft (sertraline)?
Drug interactions: Since zoloft (sertraline) can be sedating at times - I would make sure that the antihistamine you use would be non sedating such as Allegra or Claritin - please consult a doctor to make sure about drug interactions but generally Flonase should be ok with zoloft (sertraline).See 1 more doctor answer
High mold exposure when cleaning. Allergic to mold. 1 wk increasing sinus/chest congestion, itching nose/eyes/throat. Antihistamine? Fluticasone?
Yes: Both can give you some symptomatic relief. Avoiding the exposure is primary and if it is in a home it is best to move if you are highly sensitive. Check out www. Mhpvitamins. Com, Inc. As they have a homeopathic for this.See 4 more doctor answers
You should not: Alavert is a non-sedating antihistamine (loratadine), which is the same active ingredient as Claritin. Benadryl is also a antihistamine, but causes more sedation than loratadine. The two should not be taken together as they are the same class of medication with similar mechanisms of action. Flonase is a nasal steroid which can be used with either Alavert or Benadryl
Both to help more: Nasal steroid such as Flonase is the front line treatment for allergic rhinitis, but at time people do need more than a spray--adding an antihistamine such as alavert, zyrtec, benadryl, (diphenhydramine) Allegra is quite common--they do not interact and in fact both work to help your allergies. Of course, use the smallest effective dose when needed. Good luck.
See ENT/allergist: You may be more sensitive to allergens than others or the combinations of medications you are using is not the right selection for you. Worst case scenario is that your perceived allergy symptoms may be something else entirely. You may need to see a specialist for skin testing (and blood work) to various allergens in order to achieve a better management plan.See 1 more doctor answer
Was on flonase (4.5yr), zyrtec (6yr), and benadryl (1). The zyrtec stopped working/On xyzal now. Why has zyrtec stopped working? Will the break help?
Med: I think it helps to take a break from any medication. Concerning your allergies. Have you looked at your diet. That can have an effect too.
I've had allergies my whole life. Currently taking flonase and 24 hr allegra in the AM and benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night. Nothing is working. What else can I do?
See an allergist: Who would examine you after taking your history, including environmental history, order or perform some tests, like allergy skin testing, and help you with your symptoms, please check aaaai. Org or acaai. Org for an allergist in your area, good luck

I take flonase and allergra for seasonal allergies, and that usually controls it. Today it is not. Can I take allegra, claritin, or benadryl?
Allergy treatment: If taking Allegra already you should not double up on a long acting antihistamine (Allegra, Claritin, Zyrtec). This can cause heart issues. Intra-nasal steroids (Flonase) should be used routinely. Adding Allegra is fine on an-needed basis. Adding short acting (Benadryl) is ok but indicates need for better preventive care (environmental controls, more consistent Flonase use, allergy shots).
What is a natural, effective way to treat seasonal allergies? I've been taking Benadryl at night for post nasal drip. I'm also taking Flonase daily. I find my allergies are much worse in the evening.
Seasonal allergies: Most allergy symptoms become worse or act up at night, what you currently take isn't controlling your symptoms, and the post nasal drip can be due to sinusitis as well. You need to see an allergist for evaluation and better control of your symptoms, meanwhile: saline nasal washes, make sure you are using flonase right and use it daily, instead of benadryl, take cetirizine or loratadine daily too
I've taken Zyrtec, Flonase, and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) but can't sleep for coughing. These are all things my doctor told me to take. Can I take delsym too?
I took 1 tablet of Zyrtec 10mg and flonase today at 10am. It didn't really help, my nose is still clogged. Can I take Benadryl before bed so that it helps me sleep?
Yes you can, but: You need to revise how are you taking those medicines. You need to flush your nose with saline and clear the nasal passages before using the Flonase, which has to used right, (directed backwards and outwards when inside your nose towards your ear). You can double the dose of Flonase or take it twice a day for a day or two, if all this doesn't help, better see your doctor / ENT for re-evaluatio
