Tried benadryl, (diphenhydramine) zyrtec & allegra. I get extremely dizzy with brain fog from all of them. Is there anything else to try for chronic idiopathic hives?

Tried benadryl, (diphenhydramine) zyrtec & allegra. I get extremely dizzy with brain fog from all of them. Is there anything else to try for chronic idiopathic hives?

Alternative Meds: As hives often has a strong emotional component, consider some of the following psychiatric meds that have an antihistaminic effect along with an anti-anxiety effect: Mirtazepine, Quetiapine and Doxepin. Although not FDA-approved for hives, experience has shown efficacy in some patients. Of course, always check with your doc to see if you're clear to take any of these meds.

I have chronic hives and vertigo. Can I take zyrtec for hives and antivert (meclizine) for vertigo together?

Yes you can: You can take both together without problems. You can try Antivert (meclizine) by itself to see if it also takes care of the hives. Antivert (meclizine) can also treat hives but zyrtec does not work for vertigo.

I used herb lady`s mantle for bladder issues and feel dizzy, is this normal?

I used herb lady`s mantle for bladder issues and feel dizzy, is this normal?

Lady's Mantle: Lady's mantle has been around for a long time, but no studies document its effectiveness for any indication. None of my resources specifically mentioned "bladder issues, " but it's been used to normalize menstrual periods, aid wound healing, as a vaginal douche, as an anti-inflammatory ; to soothe muscle spasms. Rarely it can cause liver damage. No, it's not normal to feel dizzy.

My resting BP is 100's/60's, but every once in a while when feeling dizzy, it's around 123/107. If I recheck a minute later it's normal again. Why?

My resting BP is 100's/60's, but every once in a while when feeling dizzy, it's around 123/107. If I recheck a minute later it's normal again. Why?

Think about this!: BP goes up with anxiety attacks, emotional tension, exercise, faulty equipment, and for many other reasons, some of which indicate poor health. See your provider for further evaluation. Carry your BP apparatus into the office with you.

Dizziness: Need to know what you had the craniotomy for in the past. If it was for a malignant grown, I would recheck the head with an MRI. If it was a benign issue I would see an ent and have him or her rule out a treatable cause for the dizziness. Good luck. Feel better!
