Is It Safe To Take Celestamine Everyday
Steroids: If you are asking about oral steroids, it is not safe to take them daily, they carry a lot of long term side effects such as weight gain, loss of bone causing osteoporosis, predisposing to diabetes and hypertension, glaucoma, cataracts, etc to name a few. Sometimes you don't have a choice but taking them if there are no alternatives, but if there are, speak to your treating physician about them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Sudafed is commonly used for swollen nasal tissue in pregnancy, or "rhinitis of pregnancy". Be careful with it if you have high blood pressure or anxiety issues, and realize it will dehydrate you somewhat. I like the 12 hour pills, and generally can only take one in the morning. Taking it in the evening frequently causes insomnia. For every sudafed tablet drink an additional 12 ounces of water. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes, but...: We do try to avoid narcotics when we can. Vicodin has a narcotic and tylenol (acetaminophen) in it. The narcotic does get to the baby a bit. Babies born after mom has been on a narcotic every day for a while do go through a withdrawal. So we try to avoid it, especially long term. But for an acute pain, it is safe in pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably safe: Zzzquil basically contains diphenhydramine (benadryl) and alcohol. Diphenhydramine is categorized as a class B drug for pregnant women (May be acceptable. Either animal studies show no risk with no available human studies, or animal studies show minor risks and human studies showed no risk.) Most class B drugs are considered relatively safe in pregnancy. With normal dosing, alcohol negligible. ...Read more
No: Clonazepan is a long-acting benzodiazepine, pregnancy category d, meaning positive risk to the fetus. Discuss w/ OB risk to fetus vs benefit to you. If quitting, should be tapered off to avoid withdrawal symptoms. Buspar (buspirone) is category b & may provide temporary option during your pregnancy.

For a short while: Hi, diclofenac is a very strong NSAID (same family as ibuprophen). It can lead to kidney dysfunction if used for a long time. It can also harm your stomach and intestines. Take it Omeprazole otc to reduce risk of ulcers if you plan on taking it orally for a time period. It also comes in a form of a patch (flector) and a cream (voltaren) which target the area of pain better. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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?
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. Have your Dr. provide a written action plan for you and those close to you ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

It is not allowed in the USA; use without close supervision by a physician is dangerous because of the betamethasone. ...Read more
