Hello, Ive been fighting hive break outs for over a year. Many doctor appointments with specialists to no avail. Currently taking xyzal hydroxizine and benedryl to fight off histimines. Lets just say I look like a who from whoville.
My son takes 2 mg trifluoperaz 3x day with1mg cogentin 2xday. He has lost his vision which has decreased 5 points and continues to drop. He has been on this for 3 months. He has gotten very frustrated because the doctor is slow to change his meds and has reduced his meds that he had previously been on with no side effects. He quit taking his meds for a day but after much research I think it is the cogentin and convinced him to continue on his other meds without the cove time. Anyone have any thoughts
