Is it common for cobblestone throat to persist even after taking zyrtec and nasal spray for a week?

Is it common for cobblestone throat to persist even after taking zyrtec and nasal spray for a week?

Sure: Sometimes, the "cobblestoning" you described is caused by a combination of post-nasal drip and direct effect of the allergen on the mucosa of the back of your throat. Stay patient. It may take a bit longer to resolve. Fyi - the medicines you are taking are spot-on treatment.

Under the weather and allergies, feels like I am in a fog. Been taking zyrtec and nasal spray. Exhausted lately.?

Might be the Zyrtec (cetirizine): Even though zyrtec tech is "nondrowsy" it still can make you tired. Claritin (loratadine) or Loratadine is better as far as drowsiness is concerned.

I had a runny nose only from right side. Left nostril was dry. I had it for 1and half day. I took zyrtec and avamays nasal spray. Wats this 1sided symptm?

Runny nose: If it only happened for 1 1/2 days and went away, it should not be of concern. Local irritant maybe? Only when it's chronic, a runny nose that seems to affect one side of the nose more than the other side could signal an anatomical problem, such as a spinal fluid leak. When symptoms include obstruction to air flow, other conditions, such as a deviated nasal septum, need to be considered.

Can I take stacker 2 or3 and use synex 12 hour nasal spray? Right now I take zyrtec for my sinus problem also.

No nasal decongestan: Be aware that over the counter nasal decongestant sprays are extremely addictive and should only be used for 3 days max. You can use zyrtec d or go to your doc and get a prescription for a steroid nasal sprays that is much better and is not habit forming.

I am taking Allegra 180mg and Zyrtec 10mg plus using Nasacort (triamcinolone) nasal spray for seasonal allergies. Can I safely continue that or is it too much?

I am taking Allegra 180mg and Zyrtec 10mg plus using Nasacort (triamcinolone) nasal spray for seasonal allergies. Can I safely continue that or is it too much?

Safe but: If you need that much medication to control your symptoms, it may be time for you to consult an allergist. I also suspect that even the combined medications do not offer you complete relief.

I end up sneezing all the time when on Vacation in India. Is there any nasal spray I can get over the counter? Tried Zyrtec and it made me very sleepy

Saline: Don't know what are available in India without a Rx. But Claritin or Allegra will not likely make you drowsy. Cortisone nasal spray is likely your best bet. I also suspect that mold exposure is the likely cause for your problem (Isn't it about Monsoon season in India now?)

Have fluid behind ears causing congestion. Prescribed Flonase nasal spray. Would Zyrtec make the pressure/fluid worse? Didn't think to ask my doctor.

Zyrtec (cetirizine) may help.: Assuming that we're dealing with allergic rhinitis, antihistamines like Zyrtec can certainly help either by themselves or in combination with the nasal steroid. Zyrtec can cause grogginess, by the by, so be careful.

How come I get allergy shots n take allegra with atrovent nasal spray in mornings & zyrtec with benydryl n dymista at night, and still have allergies?

Allergies: These treatments only manage the symptoms, they don't cure allergies. Even allergy shots only "immunomodulate" your immune system, helping you respond less brisky to the things you are allergic to. Another couple of treatments you might consider is nasal saline irrigation and nasal steroids if you haven't been on them in the past.

Is it safe to take Robitussin Cough + Chest Congestion DM while on Lexapro, (escitalopram) Synthroid, Zyrtec, Dymista Nasal Spray & Albuterol nebulizer?

Is it safe to take Robitussin Cough + Chest Congestion DM while on Lexapro, (escitalopram) Synthroid, Zyrtec, Dymista Nasal Spray & Albuterol nebulizer?

Many meds: At your age (or anyone else for that matter) taking five medicines and wanting another one is not smart unless your doctor has told what medical problems you have. Having said that, if your doctor did prescribe those meds, over time the meds should be reduced. Please let me know what develops.

What is pitocin nasal spray?

No longer available: This used to be available but was removed from the US market in 1995. The medication pitocin (oxytocin is the chemical) is used to help induce (initiate) labor in women and can help prevent bleeding after giving birth. There has been some data in the past that suggested intranasal (nose spray) Pitocin decreased stress hormone release in the elderly.
