While large amounts of phosphate taken as a supplement could cause GI upset & diarrhea, in my opinion there is no such thing as true phosphate allergy. ...Read more

Constip./Dependence: Constipation is a side effect that can occur at the onset and last throughout treatment. Regular use of any opioid (such as codeine) will produce a physical dependence on the drug that would be demonstrated if you attempted to abruptly withdraw- i.e. Agitation, diarrhea, sleeplessness, sweating, runny nose. Another effect is the possible increase in pain in your body (opioid induced hyperalgesia). ...Read more

Can allergy medicine (i.E. Zyrtec) become ineffective after a while?

Can allergy medicine (i.E. Zyrtec) become ineffective after a while?

Yes: Yes, Zyrtec (cetirizine) can become ineffective after a while. Zyrtec (cetirizine) tends to block histamine responses; however, the immune system diversifies with time and sends additional signals to respond to allergy (develops an adaptive response with IgE antibodies, B cells, T cells, etc). Once this occurs, antihistamines only block a subset of the allergic immune response. ...Read more
