In brief: Routine meds

Routine allergy and asthma medications such as claritin, zyrtec, benadryl, (diphenhydramine) singulair, antihistamine eye drops, antihistamine or steroid nasal sprays, steroid oral inhalers, carefully-used bronchodilator inhalers, etc.
.. Should all be ok to use in Marfan syndrome. Bronchodilator inhalers, if overused, will cause a rapid heart rate, which is not desired in Marfan syndrome patients.

In brief: Specialist

See a specialist who treats each specific disease.
Do not try to deal with all of these symptoms alone. That is why doctors go to school for a minimum of 7-15 years.
