I have been taking cymbalta (duloxetine) & concerta for 4 days in the morning. I took motrin and Claritin for my allergies and feel slightly dizzy/weak?

I have been taking cymbalta (duloxetine) & concerta for 4 days in the morning. I took motrin and Claritin for my allergies and feel slightly dizzy/weak?

Not likely meds...: Allergies often affect fluids in the middle ear & may explain "dizziness". I would not expect the combo of meds you mentioned, to be "causing" the problem: Concerta is a stimulant; cymbalta, (duloxetine) an anti-depressant. Drink plenty of fluids to mitigate against dehydration playing any role in your feeling weak and/or dizzy. ...Read more

History of anxiety, found hive on arm yesterday, two hives on leg this am. Very anxious, history ofs easonal allergies. I took 2 motrin and 2 benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

History of anxiety, found hive on arm yesterday, two hives on leg this am. Very anxious, history ofs easonal allergies. I took 2 motrin and 2 benadryl (diphenhydramine)?

Hard to tell: Hives can be triggered by many things including stress. However drugs, foods, or viral infection can cause acute hives as well. If the problem is not severe and goes away after 6 wks, just try antihistamine if the trigger cannot be identified. See your doctor or allergist if the problem extends beyond 6 weeks or not responded well to anithistamine. ...Read more

4 yr old has fever from allergies. Takin Zyrtec Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Motrin. Why is her heart rate so fast and should I b concerned. Appetite is normal?

Fever is not from: allergies. She probably has a viral illness. The increased heart rate is most likely from the fever & is a normal occurrence. You should have her seen by her doctor tomorrow if he/she is not available now. What is her heart rate? If it is over 160, you shouldn't wait till the morning. Please take her to the emergency room tonight. ...Read more

When I was a baby an allergies exam results was that I was allergic to aines and some other components in advil (ibuprofen). At 21 do I have the same allergies?

When I was a baby an allergies exam results was that I was allergic to aines and some other components in advil (ibuprofen). At 21 do I have the same allergies?

Probably not: Most babies outgrow their allergies by age 3 and they change constantly during that time which is why we rareloy test them unless it it might be life threatening. It would be worth your while to challenge it. You might have Benadryl (diphenhydramine) on hand just in case you react. ...Read more
