Questions to the study
I've had PBC for 24 years, but am experiencing itching for the first time. Loratadine10 mg seems to help for about 12 hours, although it says to take only 1x/day. Does anyone have a similar experience or advice? Thanks!
Just wondering if there is any proven connection (or any experiencing) "absence seizures" that can tie it back to Sudafed usage? I've experienced these seizures very intermittently over the last 12 years (am 53 years old). I experience about 1-2 per year, on average, but may go 2 years ...
User reviews to the study
Have taken over-the- counter loratadine 10mg periodically (not every day) for probably over 10 years during high seasonal allergy seasons or when working in situations were dust, fumes or grass/tree/pollen would cause allergies or sinus infections. It works great for reducing allergy symptoms. ...
I stopped taking Claritin once the rash appeared on my forearms. But that was two weeks ago. I have been using a hydrocortisone cream for the itching. Does anyone know how long the rash lasts? And do you know any better cures?
I have no history of asthma. I am a 27 year old male. I weigh 163 lbs. It is now the third day I've been taking loratadine based medicine. I have begun wheezing so much that sleep has become impossible. I keep waking trying to hyperventilate.
Hello, just starting taking ginkgo biloba yesterday. I also take loratadine as needed for allergies. Has anyone had side effects from taking these together. Any Help would be appreciated. Sincerely; L
