Allergists define allergy as an over-reaction of the immune system to very small amounts of foreign substances that enter the body. 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

It's been described: Hi. While it's uncommon, it has been described. Are you diabetic on diabetes medicine? Your symptoms do not suggest hypoglycemia to me.

Please do not stop taking any of your medications without first discussing with your doctor!

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

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
