Prednisone And Benadryl Medication
I have red patches all over my body they itch.I went to the hospital and the gave me benadryl, (diphenhydramine) prednisone, &cimetidine these medications did nothing!?
Foolish: ER people treat heart attacks, accidents, emergencies. That's why we call it the emergency room. They are poor at treating "red patches all over". What did they call it? Stop this foolishness and see a dermatologist. When you call, indicate if it is urgent. Is your water safe yet? Do not take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) except bedtime. It is a sleeping pill. Cimetidine is for acid stomach, not for skin. You need a p ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Prednisone is a synthetic cortisone. The body makes cortisone, a natural hormone made in adrenal glands. The body converts it to Hydrocortisone to become active. 25 mg of cortisone has about same effect as 5 mgm prednisone. The average person would produce 3-6 mg of pred daily. So why use a substitute? The synthetic has more anti-inflammatory effect; but has less effect ...Read more

7wks pregnant, Is prednisone safe for treating my 1st time hives 3 days going, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) seems to calm it, appears after 8 hrs effect, is this safe?
Not really safe: Studies suggest that there's a small increased risk of oral clefts when taking Prednisone in the first trimester. An oral cleft happens when the lip or palate (roof of the mouth) does not fully close during development. Before you take prednisone, discuss other options with your healthcare provider. There are other medicines available that may be safer and still keep your hives under control. ...Read more
"i have a rash and it will not stop itching i went to the e.r last night and they prescribed me prednisone and told me to take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) i am 20 weeks ?
See derm: Pregnancy alone can be associated with skin rash sometimes severe. A short-course of prednisone is the usual treatment . Benadryl (diphenhydramine) does help by making you a little drowsy and probably not from its antihistamine effect. If the problem continues, consult a dermatologist. ...Read more
I'm currently taking 275 of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) all day and singular,pepsid and Zyrtec along with prednisone. Have suffered with anaphylactic shock. Zofran ok ?
Zofran (ondansetron): Is just another antihistamine,acts centrally though, and mainly for nausea/vomiting, won't add any benefit if you already are controlled on the medicines mentioned, besides it isn't the first line therapy in anaphylaxis. Discuss with your doctor if you still have symptoms, good luck ...Read more

Diphenhydramine, prednisone, ranitidine are given to my dad before he does his cardiac cath.. Is those going to help him not be allergic to iodine ?
Allergy: Iodine is not the problem. Has he ever ingested "iodized" salt? If so, he is not iodine allergic. The IV contrast used in the cath is a spontaneous mast cell degranulator that causes the allergic reaction. We suppress this with those three meds prior to IV contrast to prevent reactions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've been taking prednisone and benedryl for a beesting for 3 days now and the swelling is getting worse what can I do Last time I was n hosp. 4 2week?
I have a insect bite intolerance. Yesterday i had another bite, I'm taking prednison 30 mg p/day (5 days) and Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 50 mg. Cooling makes it worse.
I have been getting hives for the past 3 days now and they seem to get worse each time. I'm taking prednisone & 2 antihistamines. What else can I do?
No scratching: Think about everything you've eaten or been exposed to in the last 3 days or viral symptoms. Sometimes they are idiopathic. Ask your doctor to check your blood counts, ANA, thyroid function if they persist and become chronic. Some dermatologists advise zantac (ranitidine) as an H1 blocker which can enhance histamine blockade of antihistamines. Singular is another idea. Aveeno oatmeal baths, cut fingernails. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
