Urticaria & hives. Glimeperide (hives 3 wks after start) or losartan (long term use) How long does it take to resolve- after stopping meds? On prednison

Urticaria & hives. Glimeperide (hives 3 wks after start) or losartan (long term use) How long does it take to resolve- after stopping meds? On prednison

I would think 3 weeks after stopping meds should be enough time for them to clear. You might have to look for other causes, or try different meds. ...Read more
