Hives for 4 days I hve perscribed meds hydroxyzine 25mg, diphenhydramine 25 mg, Ranitidine hydrochloride 150 mg & cetirizine 10mg .. Wat should I use?
That's a lot: Cetirizine taken every day helps reduce frequency/severity of hives outbreaks. Hydroxyzine reduces itching immediately but also is potently sedating so is best used at bedtime only when needed.

Approach: I am assuming that amitryptiline was chosen to treat your neuropathy, and that the side effects are not tolerated (common scenario). The low dose and relatively short experience should make it easy to go off Tapering over a week should be sufficient, but work with your doctor, and follow suggested approach. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Yes and no: a single oxycodone tablet will add some additional narcotic effect, but if the goal is to reduce dependence on opiates, taking more oxycodone goes in the opposite direction. You should have a treatment plan with parameters for how to manage your pain that your doctor and you agree to together. ...Read more
