Does Benadryl (diphenhydramine) allergy work for breathing problems?

Not typically: Benedryl helps by blocking histamine, so it is most useful for allergic problems like runny nose. It also is an effective sleep aid.

Does piriton allergy tablets cause breathing problems? I've been experiencing breathing difficulties since i've taken them.

It can make your secretions dry and thick, so if you has asthma, it could make it worse, but that's true of all antihistamines, not just piriton.

Posture related breathing problems. I'm unable to exhale fully and don't know if its asthma, airway remodeling, allergies, or something else. ?

Posture related breathing problems. I'm unable to exhale fully and don't know if its asthma, airway remodeling, allergies, or something else. ?

No: That is a common and overrated opinion about bad posturing.

Saline nasal allergy spray called asteoto. it's main ingredient is azelastine hcl. could that show up on my drug test?

Saline nasal allergy spray called asteoto. it's main ingredient is azelastine hcl. could that show up on my drug test?

No, but sedating: Tons of meds cause false-positive results in drug tests. It depends on the actual testing reagents. Here's just one ex: http://www.pharmacologyweekly.com/articles/drug-classes-cause-false-positive-urine-drug-screen. Be honest reporting all meds, even if they won't show. Your antihistamine drops are considered sedating, so may be prohibited if you are a pilot/ATC. Consider montelukast. Works well. ...Read more

When i was little i was healthy but when i reached my teens i developed allergies, scoliosis, weak joints, and breathing problems. What could cause it?

When i was little i was healthy but when i reached my teens i developed allergies, scoliosis, weak joints, and breathing problems. What could cause it?

Allergies, scoliosis: While some children develop asthma in infancy, it is more typical for allergies like hayfever to develop in adolescence and young adulthood. Presumably, this is due to hormonal changes which then cause changes in the immune system. Scoliosis is not related to allergies but can worsen in teens as a result of growth spurts occurring at this time which can affect bone and joint development. ...Read more
