Medicine For Aralen Phosphate Allergy
Unnecessary: Some non-medical practitioners say that allergy can occur to virtually any substance in the environment.

I have been on codeine phosphate 30mg for over a year. I am worried about sideeffects. What are the long term side effects of this drug?
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

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

What is the context: Depends on what you are looking for. No simple test. There are specific tests for certain things (penicillin). There are a few tests done to determine if an individual can tolerate a certain med (G6PD). Mostly, though, it comes down to trial of a med and knowledge of what to look for. For example if you get a cough with ACE inhib (lisinopril) your DR will change you to ARB (valsartan) ...Read more
