Whenever I have cold, I take a tablet of celestamine. Will this help?

Whenever I have cold, I take a tablet of celestamine. Will this help?

Not a good idea: It appears that this is a combination of cortisone and an antihistamine- neither of which has shown effectiveness for cold. The cortisone may even reduce your defense against the virus but likely very minimally.
The older antihistamine does have a drying effect which may reduce the runny nose but also tends to make you sleepy. If you must, take only an antihistamine. ...Read more

Celestamine for allergy 2mg how many should I take for 1 day?

Celestamine for allergy 2mg how many should I take for 1 day?

No, no, nyet: I don't think this combination is indicated for people with hay fever. The antihistamine tends to make people drowsy, and the celestone (betamethasone) is over-killed with potentially many serious side effects when taken long-term. You need another opinion since there are far better and safer drugs for hay fever. ...Read more

I take celestamine 1 tb 4 x a day. After the two days it makes me too drowsy so I stopped during the day and im only taking at night is it ok?

Beta methasone: You neglected to indicate the purpose of this pill. It is a pill that should never have been produced. The antihistamine is making you sleepy. There are much better antihistamines which will not make you sleepy. The betamethasone should almost never be dosed this way. No further comment possible without basic information about you. Throw away these pills and find a better DR. ...Read more

Can I take celestamine for sore throat?

Can I take celestamine for sore throat?

Not a good idea: Of course, one can only treat what has been identified as the cause. On the other hand, most temporary sore throats are from a viral infection and celestamine would not help it (potentially prolonging the duration of the illness). Try saline gargle or topical anesthetic lozenges provided that a strep throat has been ruled out. ...Read more

Being allergic to bees. Is taking celestamine tablets after a sing sufficient or is an epipen (epinephrine) required? How long will the celestamine take to work?

Being allergic to bees. Is taking celestamine tablets after a sing sufficient or is an epipen (epinephrine) required? How long will the celestamine take to work?

Too long: Unless you have certain medical conditions the risk of a dangerous allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) far outweighs the risk associated with an Epinephrine injection. Shoot first, ask questions later. Take the antihistamine afterwards. Deaths from anaphylaxis are associated with delays in administration of epinephrine.

I have developed a very swollen bottom lip. Not sure if allergic reaction or bite. I have taken Tellerge 180 mg over an hour ago? No change. Can I take Celestamine as well? What else can I do to reduce swelling. It is quite painful.

I have developed a very swollen bottom lip. Not sure if allergic reaction or bite. I have taken Tellerge 180 mg over an hour ago? No change. Can I take Celestamine as well? What else can I do to reduce swelling. It is quite painful.

Angioedema: The commonest cause of swelling of the lip in the absence of trauma or infection is an allergic reaction. You have already taken an antihistamine. Celestamine contains antihistamine but also has a cortisone like substance which may be helpful. Applying a cold compress may also help. Angioedema usually subsides within 24 hours. If you have associated throat or breathing problems go to emergency roo ...Read more
